Here's mine. So far a best of 10.81 at 123. Back to back passes I switched from a Carb shop 750 to a 1050 box stock dominator jetted on a 65 degree day to 88 square and picked up 2 tenths with no other changes other than obviously adding the 4150/4500 flange adaptor.

Dart Swinger 3440 with me. 360 .030 over with w2 heads mildly ported with 2.02 intake valve. 602 Crane roller, Harland Sharp 1.5 rockers. 12.5 compression, 1050 Dominator with w2 victor jr intake, 1 7/8 to 2 inch headers to 3 1/2 collector to full exhaust with x-pipe. 904 RMVB nothing fancy. Converter is a 4600. Rear is 4.56 with 28x9 MT ET Drags, super stock 002/003 springs with snubber. I leave just off idle at 2000 rpm, shift at 6500, and cross the stripe at just under 7000. Here is one of my video productions with the run, and other from Englishtown.

Dart at Etown.JPG
pump gas 498 .590 lift non roller solid cam. indy 440ez-1 heads with alot of work. 11.2:1 street motor. th400 and 9" rear with 4.11 gear on bfg 315/65 drag radials. relocated caltracs. Car goes 10.30s at low 130's leaving real soft off idle 1.60 short times. when I get a converter built and start launching it on the t-brake it should go 1.3-1.4 60 foots and maybe dip into the 9's. I have a post going with all the car info in the general section. 3000lbs with me in the car and the motor made 687 on 93vpower shell gas.
My 3100 pound Duster ran 10.50's with a 340, 12.2:1 compression, .672 lift flat tappet cam, W5 heads flowing 300 cfm's at .600 lift and 305 at .650. Still using the 2.02 intake valve. The 4600 T/A converter, 29.5/11.5 tires, 904 with a low gear set and 5.13's. The carb is a self modified 850 Speed Demon flowing 930 cfm's with a 2" open spacer on an M1 manifold. 1 7/8 headers, no mufflers or juice.

I'll tell you straight up that I tried a lot of converters, rear gears, cams and even intakes and carbs to get it where it was. I run the same basic combo in the Scamp except it's a MP 360 short block, not much better than stock, but with the same heads, cam, intake and driveline. It weighs 2600 pounds, uses 4.88 gears and 14/32's with a four link. So far in crappy air it's gone 6.60 in the 1/8th at 103 and 10.45 in the 1/4 at 127. It's nearly 10 years old now and pretty tired so instead of freshening it I'm just going to build a stroker short block and have the heads touched up and 2.08 intakes installed. The only other changes are the 2" primary tube headers and 4" collectors. Should put it in the 9's, 10's on motor, ported 440-1, .700" roller cam, indy intake, 1150 dom, tti 2" headers, aluminum rods, 14.1-1 compression, 9 1/2" vertor, 727, dana 60 with 4.56, 29"x10.5", 3700lbs.

Nice combo. I have a 68 Dart 451 flat tops, .650 Comp flatr tappet cam,1050 Dom, really old alum intake, stock 727 trans w/reverse valve body,4.88 Dana rear,"J" converter , 14 X 32's and foot braking. Short times are crappy but decent mph. I have only ran it in the 1/8th. The Bracket Finals last year were 1/8th mile only at Indy except for Sportsman and High School. My 60 ' are around 1.4654,1.4689 and slower. My best ET has been a 6.7709 and my best mph has been 101.35 that I can find time slips for. What do you guys think it would do in the 1/4? 10.80's-10.90's?

Well, it has been a while, '87 through '90, but here goes. Consistent 10:60s @ 125 with a 10:38 at 130 quickest.

67 Barracuda Coupe, back halfed with ladders and coil overs, 12 point, 538 Dana 60, Glide with trans brake, 14w32s, rack and pinion with stock front suspension, and 10 inch drums. 383, 557 MP flat tappet, 906 heads milled .130, Harlan Sharpe RR, TM6, with a Chuck Nutten 750 flowing 930, duel Holley blue pumps, C12.

old race car.JPG
In process of switching from SB to BB. SB I had ran on alcohol best of 10.54 in 1/4 6.59 1/8 126mph 1.42 60fts 590 cam crane 1.5 rockers Ken Jones 750 carb 4:88 gears. I think bigger on carb would have helped.. Heads Hughes mildly ported iron. I'am just about 62 (nov) On hold myself other things going on. Its slowing my BB upgrade for now. Hopefully be ready by spring or mid summer 2011.
70 Duster
All OEM ex: Glass hood/deck/bumpers
Cage, mini tubs and springs moved in
3100# race ready

KB Flat tops (.025 out = 12.2:1 CR)
Bullet 268/276 solid cam (.585" lift)
Comp Pro Mag stainless rockers (1.5)
OLD Victor intake
800 Holley (with Silly Wild Azz Guess fuel curve)
RHS X 2.02 heads (268 peak cfm at .600")
Hooker 1 3/4 x 3 headers
Dynomax bullet muffs
MSD 7AL3 w/crank trigger

8" (5000-ish) converter
8 3/4 with a 4.56 gear and spool
11.5x29.5 slicks
Cal Tracs and leafs

Leaving at 2500 on the footbrake, and 5800 shifts:

10.54 @ 130 (100 degrees/2940 DA
10.50 @ 130 (86 degrees/2480 DA
104 and change at the 660'

The 60' is weak at 1.47-ish, probably due to only having 30 degrees of timing...

Not too bad for a "replacement" head, NO tuning and my first small block build. Best part was no leaks, no holes and nothing fell off!
Similar air...2 more degrees -

10.42 @ 130
10.41 @ 130
10.33 @ 131.95 raising the shifts from 5800 to 6400!

All else the same...

Thanks again Brian if you ever read this!
