10.87 @ 124.35

Just got home from LA after doing a little drag racing and tourism!

Special thanks to Chris Sehorn at Circle D. He built an awesome converter for the car and its not even listed on the site, but if your looking for a great NA converter, hit him up about the 1e lineup!

Thanks to Terry and Justin of FMS for giving me a hand with the car last night. It was nice to have some help with the wheel swap, and video as well.

The other thread had so many posts so here is a fresh thread with the slips and vids off 4 runs in the 3 runs in the 10s.

Time for headwork, Posi Mod, rear wheel studs, and maybe different exhaust. By fall I should be looking for 10.60s.

Nice time for a cam, headers, CAI, 3.91's, converter, and wheels/tires.
Sounds like the converter is locking (or trans is possibly shifting into OD) before the finish line. You will run a better time if this doesn't happen.

He was locking the converter at the top of 4th gear on purpose!

Considering you're running a Mast VVT cam, I wonder if Mast would throw you a deal on a set of heads?
Mast VVT cam and head packages (and Rhino VVT tuning) sounds like a combo that quite a few folks could get serious about on here.

I have always pushed their cams and heads and will continue to do so.
