Tim, I think we would run within 1 hundreth of each other under the same
conditions. I already took off work for labor day weekend to race at the
NMRA race at National Trail. Hope to see you there, Maybe a 1969
Cougar match race is possible?

Who/what are the missing places on the list?

Mike
Good question. When I started penciling in this list I was hoping to have a lot more responses so I "kind of" started in groups of 10 based on 1/8mi ET and a little bit of 1/4 mi ET.

Seems that the number of cats wishing to be on the list is low so maybe it's time to cut the gaps out and make a continuous list from 1 to ???

I'm open for suggestions on how y'all want the list to look. I could use some formatting tricks if you know how as well as it seems no matter what I do it posts in that crappy font and shrinks out all the spaces I put in to make it readable. :)

1st time out with the Cougar this year was last Saturday, went a 10.17 at 134 MPH on a 1.54 60ft. New tires and a poor track surface didn't help my cause. It would be nice to 60ft in the 1.30's like the top guys. They are getting it done.

I can't believe a Basically stock 67 390 A/T car is the 45th Fastest Cougar ever. I challenge every one to try to get out and make at least 1 pass down the track this summer. You will have the time of your life doing it, and post your times and info here. We sponsor a Local Racer running a 69 Cougar with 351C 4V Motor at Portland International Raceway. I don't think he is on here, but next time we talk, I will make sure info and E.T. are posted.

:) one day im gonna submit my time slips. 460 siamease bore, off the cam electric distributor MAYBE electric cam (currently discussing with someone overseas about this.) Expecting 750 minimum hp/tq 8 pt roll cage, square rails tube cage, a-arm struts 4 link rear 3:37 posi 4 speed manual (cause real drag cars are shift stick.) Maybe some other crazy ideas. We'll see. Still thinking about using a junk yard mod for webber stacks, definitely going with a carbon fiber hood

Edit: for those curious about the electrical cam http://www.denso-europe.com/Electric-Variable-Cam-Timing--1014030000000001.aspx

Fastcat, you can get 750hp out of a 460 without a bunch of geegaws and doodads like electric cams. You can do it with a stock iron block, crank, and the right iron heads.
Seriously.

"Electric cam" = VVT. I said it before and I'll say it again, "what a maroon".

Seriously.

Shoulda said something 3 years ago - I sold mine before giving up on racing, at least for now. All cast iron like Andy says and still turned out 735hp. Grab a good FE performance book and use it as your bible - it will prove invaluable. Probably plenty of guys who disagree about the 4 speed too - more fun without a doubt, but consistency is hard to beat with auto no matter how you slice it. Webbers are a total PITA to maintain anything that even resembles "tunned", especially homegrown setup like old school dragsters used. If the weather/temp changes you gotta start tweaking again....too many headaches - but they look awesome! When it comes down to the brass nuts - drag racing is 90% consistancy if you like winning. But as we all know real race cars don't turn corners! --he, he Tell that to your NASCAR buddies! (For us impatient types anyway)

??? A 460 is a Lima, not an FE.

Ok, that car is rockin' for a 3.8L. Care to tell how much boost you're running? :)
Times updated. Kept your old ones for historical reasons...
