I don't have the "full" spec of my mates '68 Cuda but its back halved, 14.5x32's, 540ci all ally motor, -1's, .780ish Roller run on Methanol, Rons toilet, 727, front coil-over susp, makes around 850hp and has run a best of 8.77@152...runs 8.80>90's consistent@150>151....fastest Door Mopar we have here currently NA.
Way cool M8, almost identical to my combo.
Yeah very similar, cool car you have.........he is 1 of only 2 Mopar racers that can run in the 8's NA, the other is a '69 Dart, again I don't have all the spec but I think its very light, 512 wedge, -1's on alky now, Comp .650-290@.050 SFT cam last time I asked, big tyre/front coils, Glide, SV1 carb, runs 8.90's@150...all the other fast Mopars we have are at least .5/sec slower some with 572 motors.
Hi...What track do you race at. Do you know Lee Chiles. His Valiant is a car I built and raced here. He ended up with it. He has been pretty successful with it. Chris
I haven't raced since 1991 Chris but visit SPR regularly, still got an interest in it, especially the Tech side of it and know some of the racers from back in my day as well as the new blood....yes have spoken to Lee briefly, car is quite consistent and he has done well in the brkt wars, motor is quite mild if I remember correct except for the CR, think he said it was 12.2:1 which made me remember it, runs 11.0's, nice looking car. This was my junk> Budget build back in 1990....... Body:- 1969 Cuda fastback. glass bonnet, perspex windows, no inner wings, rest steel. Chassis:- Backhalved, 2x3 box section, L/bars/coil-overs, Hoosier 14x32's, 8.75" w/4.88's, strange 35sp spool/axles, stock front susp. with gabriel 90/10's, 318 t-bars., Weight 3300lbs all in. Trans/conv.:- 727 manual, stock pattern, A1 4800 verter. Engine:- Stock 1968 440 6-pk bottom end +.030, ported 906's approx 260cfm with 2.14/1.81, fel-pro blue h/gskts, around 9.8:1, Team G int., 2.5" spacers inc N20 plate, 2" f/wells, 850DP Holley, CC .650" 290@.050 dur solid flat tappet, Roller springs with small spring removed, HS Roller rockers, Milodon single line external.

Ran 10.71@125 NA just the once before hitting it with spray.
You had a great package going on. Looks like it worked good.Yes, Lee's car is 12.5 ross pistons, Eagle rods, stock steel crank. I had that engine in 3 different cars. Called it Frankenstein. I made a LOT OF MONEY WITH IT IN ALL THE CARS. IT IS A 69 hp rb, 630 comp ROLLER, 1.6 ROCKERS, one of the 1st 3 sets of BULL DOG HEADS, AND I RAN AN M1 INTAKE. I BELIEVE HE MAX WEDGED THE HEADS, AND RUNS AN iNDY INTAKE.It has a JW glide.Sorry, hit the caps, too tired to re-type.I ran mid 9's in the Daytona, and 10:70's in the duster. here are 2 pic's Cheers M8
Yes it worked good however from what I've learnt over the years the 90/10's were wrong for the car, the cam was too big for the comp., the intake valve closed @90deg!! so I only had about 128psi CP, to little air in the slicks etc.etc., would love to get that combo back today and put all the things right, raise the comp to 12.5 or a smaller dur. cam, get rid of that Team G for a Victor, put a 1050AN on it or a Dom, and a 5000 stall, reckon there would be a mid>lowish 10 in it possibly, that would put some of the other Mopar guys with 500+ci motors to shame, as most are only just in the 9's-low 10's with eddy/victor ally heads with similar weight cars. I parted the car out in 1993 as couldn't sell it turnkey and it hasn't been seen since, so thats not going to happen unless I build it and the cost today would be huge, the whole car at the line including buying it owed me around £9000 ($11300), it would cost near that just to get a back-half job done today....... I'll tell Lee I spoke to you when I see him next, all the best......Les
I plan on being the 8s next year with my 70 Dart. NA 540 -1s 1.295 5.793 @119.33 9.122@142
Big deal?!?! How did you do it? What parts did you use? That’s what the thread is here for! Come bud! Where’s that list?
Its almost my first post 540 mega block, 13 to 1 Comp solid roller 440-1 appear to be unported TD rockers 4150 indy intake 1250 dominator Glide, 4.56, 4 link, strut front sus, 33 tire Tube chassis mild steel 7.50 cert Super lite. Engine does make much power. Figure with some port work and a different cam I should be able to pickup the time I need
Good job. very similar cars. Looks like mad Mike took your picture. He is a great guy and a friend. Our track is his home track. How much does it weigh? Chris
Weight is 2450 with me. Where is your home track?
That is light. That is what mine weighed when I bought it WITHOUT me in it. I added probably 150 lbs, then lost 110 with aluminum block. I weigh 220, so I figure I am little over 2800...perfect for S/ST. Need to scale it again. I am all steel, even back bumper, except hood, trunk and front bumper. Car originally had a blown Hemi in it, been in the 6's in the 1/4. Chassis became outdated. Only cert. to 7:50 now Spokane County Raceway
Pulled my intake yesterday to look at my heads and figure out a game plan. Intake opening appears to be standard 440, at least the same as a 2891 victor intake right out of the box. But the heads are untouched. Feeling pretty good about next season. I'm looking at modern or flow tech 2 to do the port work. Anyone else good with -1s I should be talking to? And bye bye 4150 intake with my 1250 dominator
Jeff Bird in Post Falls did my. Expensive, but super trick. I also did these Harland Sharp stands. More stable
I have t&d rockers on mine but those look great! What kind of numbers did you get on your -1s? Is he a member on here or does he have a shop?
He has a shop in Post Falls. Flys under the radar! Not a member here. They flow 383/289 @ 700 lift. About all your going to get without heavily modifying them (welding and changing ports). I also went to 2.25 valves. He said it would have been better to stay with the 2.19. Just repeating what he said. When it got down to the end, he scribed them to the block, and went out as far as he could.
Run 1/8 th best 5.94 115mph 499 on Rons toilet 4.56 Srs MW ports.
Thats working, awesome!
So you have your combo listed somewhere?
