Thanks!! The car does leave good, it has a 3k pro-tourq converter. I have to spray it at the 60' or so or it will spin.. This year I want to run a 28"tall tire I'm at 7200 in 3rd at the trap now with a 100 shot. I'd like to hit it with a 200 with out having to shift in OD.The tranny is a 4l85 from Bowler.
