Wow $250 That is awesome. Never wanted polished stuff under the Hood not that it didn’t look good it was that I was too lazy to polish it. Lol

Well gents it has been a long time coming but my shop is sponsoring a track rental at Royal Purple Raceway this coming Wednesday. Other than the car needs an oil change, everything is currently fixed and the car is running well.

I will be shooting for the 10.1 second manual trans record, but honestly, I hope to dip into the 9's if I can get a decent take-off and hit my shifts.

Guess we will see. There have been a LOT of changes since my 10.5 sec run two years ago. If you take the time to peruse this thread from the beginning you will see them all noted somewhere. Here are the major changes:

1. Maggie to F-1X Procharger (limited to 16 psi by suction restrictor) 795 hp to 925 hp
2. Brodix Heads
3. 15" conversion with 325 M/T ET Streets
4. 4.11 gear changed to 3.70
5. Centerforce clutch replaced with McLeod RXT HD
6. Level VII RPM TR6060
7. Fore twin pump setup with ID 1700X injectors

So I am hoping these changes will get me .5 sec quicker. Unfortunately, the driver hasn't changed and it has been 2 yrs since I made a successful run at the track (tried earlier this year but sheared the blower belt) so I guess we will see what happens.

I will give an update on Wednesday if all goes as planned.

Any plans to go full send with no restrictor plate?

Yes, I want to get one decent run with restrictor in so that may take a couple of runs since my first run always sux.

After that I intend to pull the restrictor and see what it will do.

It is hard to imagine what this car would be like with an additional ~300 hp if I ever go with an LSX block so the F-1X can really be used.

Thanks guys! It has been 1 1/2 yrs since I started this thread and this will be my second attempt at making a decent pass at the strip (first attempt this spring didn't go so well). Everything seems to be in order on the car and today appears like it will be cool, but decent weather so here I go. Good or bad I will post up some results later today. I asked a friend if he could come video but I haven't heard from him so I am not sure if he will be able to make it. I will have the slips at least.

Sherman, sounds like you are hunting for bear with that set-up

I guess the time for speculation about what this F-1X will do on a SBE is about to unfold. It's not so much the car that I am worried about, but the driver concerns me

By the way Sherman, we should BOTH be looking over our shoulder because when RealQuick gets his set-up figured out I fear we will be in big do-do.

Limiter In:

Run #1 as expected was bad because I babied it off the line. Ran 10.732 @ 138.81 mph with a 1.915 60' LOL.

Run #2 I ran 10.175 @ 141.83 mph with a 1.586 60'

Run #3 I ran 10.135 @ 143.05 mph with a 1.636 60'

10.135 Time Slip.pdf

So after this time we figured the 9's were easily in sight by pulling the suction limiter for an additional 125 hp. The shop guys were thinking I may crack 9.7 with the limiter out. Unfortunately on the first run with the limiter out I popped the blower belt and it sliced my lower radiator hose so I was out of business for the day and had to be towed back to the shop. At least the cage protected the hood (as expected), and the 10.135 barely edged out Padre for 1st place on the Gen 5 manual list, though I doubt he is gonna like being beat by such a small amount.

The car ran 143 mph and was pulling like a freight train but I was having trouble with my 60' time. I was somewhat happy with the outing though I wish I could have made a couple of decent runs with the limiter out to crack the 9's but there is always next time.
