    Went to the local 1/8 track today, and faired a little bit better than last time out. I will use this as a baseline before the fine tuning begins. Need to figure out the A/F ratio, its still not running well above 6,000 rpm.

    Heh heh...or find an outlaw track. I was able to run mine at several tracks w/o the bar but kicked off the big tracks with big liability. The mom-and-pop 1/8 mi tracks turned their heads. I won't take mine out without better brakes and a cage now -- too fast for my old ass

    Tim,

    Just wondering, how do you walk? Your balls are obviously as big as church bells...

    It's been a while. Tim, you have that Cleveland flying. A little update, our Cougar has been a 9.52 @ 139 with a 1.27 60'. That's at 3285 lbs with a 427 windsor and c4 on the footbrake.

    Re: Fastest Cats -- Drag Racing

    I made it to an event at one the local 1/8 mile tracks, and ended up winning the street car class. My fastest pass was 8.713 @ 81.58, with a 2.058 60 foot time. Launching at a lower rpm was the key to my better 60 times, no wheel hop that way.
