Ran all weekend in the cold at the Milan Frost Bite Nationals. Ran a best of 9.48@140.05 on Saturday then they cut it down to 1/8 mile for my class due to cold track. I kept getting better and ran a 5.99@115 as a best with a 1.31 60 foot in the 1/8th

Great weekend

With a 5.99 1/8 I might have been going in the 9.3's in the 1/4 according to estimated conversions. Wish I would have got to see for sure though.

I'm actually too embarrassed to say how and what I have been doing (rigging) the rear suspension to get it doing what it is doing lol. Best 60 foot of the day was 1.31 flat so it has been improving.

from the looks of your launch attitude and the wrinkle of those slicks i'd have to say what ever you are doing with the suspension is definatly getting the job done. the end result is all that counts not how you got there. keep up the good work. your LS motor makes me cry every time i look at my Bowtie block 345 cu in sbc with all the tricks we 've used to get it where it is . your engine looks like a piece of cake to design and looks terribly straight forward. the fuel injection setup is a real interesting and novel approach. i like it ........... :dance: :cuss:

Wow Ive been going a lot faster than the title of this thread huh.

This years best 8.21@163.67 I believe,

Just went with a new rotating assembly before end of the year and am trying Aluminum rods too. Going to do a ton of dyno work this winter and concentrate on the intake system. I think there is some to be gained there. I really need 100 more HP somewhere for next year. We will see.

After I freshened it we ran at the Halloween classic and ran a decent 5.24@132.xx 1/8 mile
