I drove in to school and even round trips from Kansas to Tx. My best times with the BBChevy were 10.90's in the quarter and 6.90"s in the eighth. I am glad I quit racing before I cracked the weld seams on the car. It still has the original paint and original deluxe interior. It has been detuned, but I still drive with 12.5 compression, 4 speed, and street dot slicks.
I like the cut of this guys jib!

GM wants their engines to be broken in soft because they know if they told people the best way to break in the engine (redlining each gear w/o 100% tps and decelling back down to 2-3k) that way too many people would get it wrong and have issues due to that.
