    How old are you and how long have you raced

    I bought a 1974 Duster 360 in 1975 . Started racing in 1975. My first pass was low 9's in the 1/8th. I'm still racing the same car. Now run's 5.40 in the 1/8th. Same body and factory paint but tube chassis. Can't imagine life without racing. By the way I'm going to be 68 in july.

    Winter transmission builds

    I don't understand why so many people think you need a glide. Most of the guys I know that run a glide have at least 2 of them and 3 or more converters.

    Why does the suspension look like i drove over a rock?

    Try running more tire pressure adding a 1/4 lb. at a time until your 60 ft. starts to slow then go back to the best 60 ft pressure. Just a thought.

    I havn't been to the track yet. I tried indexing the plugs once and there was no difference in performance. I can buy the E3 for $5.45 ea. and the NGK for $3.10 ea. So I'll spend that little extra for the power.
