                We ran a 9.89 and we're told to slow it down, because we aren't licensed ect to go faster than 10 seconds. We weighted the car down a 100 pounds, but still did 9.96. After tinkering with it to get it to go faster, I am kind of lost now. I guess I will concentrate on my r.t. and making the car more consistent and 10 teens or 10.20. It's a lot cheaper to make it go slower than make it go faster though.

                      ET Street. 325-50-15 "R". Dana 60- 4.10. And yes it looks twisted! A good reason why I do not race this car very much. It is too nice to hammer all the time. but I couldnot resist. I was invited to a free track rental just prior to a race. The track was very sticky!

                      subframe connectors ? That's the only reason I installed a 6 point cage w/ connectors, I knew it would twist the body if I ever got it hooked up, "which I haven`t!"

                      Nick, Good question, but, in the future, it would be good to click on the screen name of the person your trying to reach and see when they were last here when your looking at an old (date wise) post. This is what I found;
                      "torkflight was last seen: Oct 3, 2016"
                      It may be possible to get his attention by making use of this symbol, @ and then typing his screen name. It will look like this; @torkflight
                      This will bring attention to him on his alerts.

                            UPDATE:
                            New motor that I built for my Barracuda:

                            · 360 block, 4” Scat forged crank, Scat I-beams, Icon forged flat top pistons

                            · Ported Edelbrocks, 57cc, Hughes solid 264/268 @ 0.050, Howards oil through lifters

                            · 13:1 compression, “750” e85 carb built by me (could use more, but that is what I have), Victor intake

                            · 727 w/ manual valve body, 8” converter, 4.10 gear, 3200# Barracuda

                            First race (1/8th mile) with it ran 6.59 on the brakes (would have been a 6.58) in bad air. Will go faster soon…should get in the 6.4x’s. Driven too and from the track…because I like to be stressed out :p

                                I will take more photos at the track this Sunday and post them.
                                Car was originally built by a gentleman from Long Island and was a big block 9 second car. Still has the parachute mount and actuation cable from those days.
