where i live, we don't actually have many quarter mile tracks so its setup (gearing) for the 1/8, however, with nitrous, it would run a high 8 to low 9 seconds pass in the 1/4

At a dragstrip, they have sensors at 60ft 330ft 660ft etc. The first 60ft is critical as it affects everything from overall ET to MPH. it's critical to get the car moving with no wheel spin to have a good overall elapsed time. the 0-60ft value is the only way of knowing how well a car does that.

That is a pretty stout small block Mr. Jones, even without the squeeze. One of the launch pictures shows the chassis twisting pretty good but, with a low 1.30's 60ft it's obviously hooking up well despite the twist. Is this a 10" tire car? Are you using a factory 400 block or after market? Peddling that quick demands good parts - how the hell can you also afford a boat?

I'm seriously in the wrong business.

Yeah, she was flexing way more than i'd like. Something has broke as it traditionally doesnt do that. she's still on factory leaf springs and drum brakes tho LOL!!! Gonna go thru the suspension and see whats twisted when the weather warms a bit. The slicks are 28x10.5x15 ET drags but they measure 9.9" tread width. It is a factory block, but a special one. It's a high nickel alloy, 2 bolt main block. A 400 is the only small block chevrolet in which the 2 bolt mains are stronger than 4 bolt mains. The cylinders are siamesed on a 400 and the bolt holes of the outer "4 bolts" creates a weak point thru the webbing. The 2 bolts are solid in the webbing area and are much stronger. The rest of the motor is a full 4340 forged rotating assembly, solid roller .675 lift camshaft, Dart Pro 1 230cc Heads, Full victor intake, a mother fogger nitrous kit, and plate nitrous kit.

Both the car and boat were bought old and broke or i couldnt have afforded either. Me and my father did all the work you see to put them both back together. Me and my dad have been building on the car since 98' getting a lil better parts and a lil faster every year. Our problem came when we both caught the boat bug in about 04' which brings about the Mariah pictured below. again, bought it at a repo yard with a froze and busted 5.0. It now has a 5.7 crate with vortec fastburn cylinder heads on her.
