Had a fun day at the track with my dad and friends. Tons of oil downs but got one pass in the car. Ran excellent! First pass went 11.54 at 118.6! I took it easy on the hit with a 1.80 60 foot. It will go 11.2-11.3's. It was my first timedown the track with his car! He was stoked for sure.

Thanks dude! The 1/8 was 7.44 at 95.6. I didn't let it eat out of the hole so had a kinda soft 1.80 60 foot. If I nailed it and it sticks would be in the 1.6 60 foots without issue.

This is with the tiny 1.5" Sanderson headers I thought would really hurt the power but must not be too bad! Car weight with driver is about 3020 lbs.

That's getting it!! my car went 1.60 in the 60ft..your dad's car is quick for a street car,,I went 7.37@94 so he is
definitely quicker than me,(so much for my ls power! :shock: ) you're leaving some hp on the table with those small pipes :rolleyes: !! did he get to make some passes? I did buckle my rear hatch on the pass side, so leaving like you did was probably a good idea.. my rims spun on the launch about a 1/4 turn.. did you get any videos? great job!! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Yeah would love some custom 1 3/4" longtubes but not in the cards. Probably 25+ hp increase. Do you have subframe connectors on your car? Yours runs hard too bro. Would be a fun race. I love these 400 sbc. They never disappoint! We are planning to beef up the S10 10 bolt a bit...Moser diff cover...alloy axles...welded tubes.
No video! !! Sucks.

We put the subframe connectors in the car before we went. Feels real solid. Thanks on the compliments on the cars! Mine went 10.98 and 10.94 that day. Has been 10.86. Both cars pump 91 with overdrives. Love hanging out with pops. He is 71 and still hangs around with us lol!
