    Man I hate waiting all day for one pass. Anyway that's getting it done for sure hopefully that made up for the wait.
    But you know I gotta ask, was that all motor? what was your 60?, what fuel you running?, Carb or injected?

    Inquiring minds need to know. :)

    It has a 418 windsor with a 950 carb and a 5.14 gear ,no power adders all motor.It used to average 1.33 60ft with a c4 but it now has a turbo 400 and that pass was 1.36 60ft it may be the converter ?

    Why the switch to the turbo 400? Just curious.

    Good setup, the Turbo400 should last a lot longer then the C4. Having any problems keeping the front end down with them 5.14's? and what you got for a rear suspension?

    I just have a ladder bar set up on the car ,but I put wheelie bar on because I have way to much money in my headers.Custom made for my car only with 2'' primary tubes, 1 /78 ''would have worked I think ?
