My chosen style and format of racing is events like the standing mile. I'll also run the loring land speed when we get everything sorted out... Which is a 1.5 miles run...

With the old motor, I shifted into 5th at about 195 mph... With the new motor I should be shifting into 5th at about 225 mph... I know I could run taller gears and accomplish the same thing, but it would kill the acceleration...

Ahhh understood. Solid build! I was going to take my V in Oct. to see what 1700whp 4dr does but car only have a parachute, has no roll cage or fire systems. Doubt I would be allowed to run.

No cage would be a certain stopper... You would be limited and met at the finish line for going too fast... That much power would get you down the track in a hurry...

I'm not running in Oct as we have too much to do with the new motor and other changes, but March, it's on big time...

So, the drag racers can run 16" rear tires with modified lower control arms and small rotors on the rear. BUT, at 200+ mph you probably get some diameter growth compared to small sidewall fronts, so you'd want a similar tire in front.... remove the front brakes.

You got a chute, you don't need no stinking brakes!

You can always use the "Garlits brake"

It's starts on page 270, and if you follow along to about 303-304 you get the results of the last mile and why the new motor is on the way...

And parts continue to roll in... Today I picked this lil Jewell up... It'll take a bit to get it all mounted for the most comfortable sitting position that will allow me to fit and still reach everything, but nothing major... Side mounts and then a bar from the upper back of the seat to the main crossbar of the cage...
