    I’m 54 years old ! Born and raised in Texas ! Been at the drag strip my whole life ! How is it I have never seen a Mopar with a /6 go down the drag strip!! I remember Glen Self in his 68 Camaro 6 cylinder at Green Valley !! I remember some Ford Mustangs 6 cylinder !! So my question is what is /6 capable of running 1/8 or 1/4 ! I mean some you / guys post some ET’s MPH and short times !! I know there has to be some crazy fast /‘s out there !! Let me know what it takes to make a / run ! Some pics would be nice to !

    My Slant six Runs 10.7 at the 1/8 at 68mph
    Thats with all the junk out of the trunk 1964 4 Speed 225 4 barrel headers decent camshaft bigger valves and mild porting with 3.55 gears, im pretty sure if i swap the old camshaft back and run some 235 60 Cheaters would get a better take off. Not that quick but hey gets decent mileage and is low maintenance :BangHead:

        Well if you'd been at Portland International Raceway a year ago you would have seen one. I took a few runs last year at the end of the season. 66 Valiant, slant, three-on-the-tree, completely original factory survivor. Absolutely nothing on this car has been changed, upgraded, rebuilt, or improved since it left the factory. I made about eight runs, averaging about 20.5 seconds with a best of 19.8 or so. I think the top speed was somewhere in the upper 60's.

        Me on the first run.

          That’s a good looking car ! Did the 66 come stock with a 225 or was there a smaller / than a 225 ?

          I'm not sure if it came with a 170 or 198. Mine is a 225. Here's a better photo.

              @Charrlie_S would be a good one for you to see race. I had the privilege of seeing him in action many years ago in Reynolds, Georgia. His cars cook. I don't want to mess it up by posting incorrect times, It's been a long time ago and I don't remember specifics. I think he was runnin low 13s or high 12s.....in his nitrous car.....I do remember he was detuned a little because he didn't want to break anything. He had two cars there and brought a friend to drive the other one. I tagged him so maybe he will chime in. We had a member here named Mark who had an early car that was naturally aspirated and set all kind of records. I believe he got into the 9s. The car was wrecked and I haven't seen him around in a long time. @Charrlie_S though has a ton of pictures. Maybe he will share some!

                There are threads over a slantsix.org listing Slant six racing series national records.
                There are also separate threads listing individuals personal best 60 foot, 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile runs.
                This is a copy of the 1/4 mile personal best.

                      I wonder what the 67's drive train would have done in an early car? That thing was kickin butt.

                        If I remember I got the 67's weight down to 2600 lbs all steel, less my fat ass so it was about 2825 lbs track weight.I did have plans to do fiberglass fenders, hood and trunk but in a weak moment sold the car. I did weigh the 64 but I don't remember it.

                        P.S. Charrlie S is the man when it comes to Slant Race Cars !

                          I wouldn't say that. A lot faster slants then mine.
                          I will say, I get a lot out of mine, for the small amount of money spent.

                            Come on Charrlie, How fast or how much isn't the case.
                            It's how much you know and have done over the years !

                              because it makes no sense to try and build a slant 6 for racing
                              for less money you can build a healthy 360 or a 408

                              so to run a slant 6 and be competitive you would have to be really dedicated to the slantie

                                Wow, you have never seen one?
                                Plenty of quick 6's running around the country.
                                The 6 doesn't get much respect here on FABO.
                                Come to Ennis next year and see my Colt.
