This is definately not my first rodeo. This cars first time down the the track it only had 700 miles on the clock. My first time down a track was in 1978 and have been racing since. Track times will come as soon as i get the back end beefed up.

Yea I'm at 600 and can't cut a consistent 60 working on suspension this week. Wheel hop started getting bad.

Dragging your car at 700 vs 850 rwhp is a world of difference. There's a very good reason there are what 50, at least, 700+ rwhp cars, and about 10 are in the single digits. It's not that easy to move 4k lbs down 1320'.

When you get down to 6.0's and under in the 1/8 that's when you better hope your car is built to handle it. The wall hurts.

Don't forget the 18" C6 rear wheels and M/T Drag radials (or better). You will need the traction to keep from slipping all the way down the track.

I want to keep up with your track times. Good Luck at "No Problem" Raceway, one of my favorite lil tracks in the swamps...............ha ha
We will put the drag wheels on it as soon as this summer heat cuts us a break. Karbon will def have this thing making passes at the track.
Looks like i might have to defend my 10.0 camaro pass here at Lethal.

On a side note...Century Transmissions...that the same company that's big into 200 4r's from the turbo buick community? If so...they are awesome! Didn't know he was doing ours. I know where I would go for a tranny if I needed one if that's the case.

Yes, Century Transmission. They were one of the first to start beefing up the 6L90.

Thanks!

Karbon is very experienced in drag racing so no doubt he will get some great passes shortly.
