This was right when the motor only had like 10,000 miles or less on it.
We built the motor in 1994. Last time we took the car to the track(2006 I think), it ran about a 14.30. But it needed plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and the carb cleaned like reallyyyy bad. Original parts from 1994. Plus this car is really easy to miss third gear in. I think I fixed the problem but I wont know until I can run it.

Larger swaybars front and rear. Upgraded Brakes front and rear. Higher spring rates. And stiffer Struts and shocks. Faster steering gear box.

I love when people "guess" what they are pushing to the wheels. Say 310 for instance. I mean being embarrassed by a dyno cost way to much

[QUOTE=a.j. hall;1528875]The car is not twisted at all and all the body lines and gaps are perfect. It does twist a bit. About half way down the track the front passenger tire lifts off the ground and stays until you let off.




You made a funny. At least you have a sense of humor.

I have this on video! If I knew how to put a cassette on the computer I would prove it. Also, when A speed shop tells me I am running about 330 horse. I would say I hvae at least 310 or 300 to the wheels.

haha yeah I love how people say how much power they are making at the wheels. When people ask me I just say I'm lucky to be making 300hp at the crank, but I honestly do not know...its enough for me.

And lifting the tire up halfway down the track.....get serious.
