You're in the 11s on the motor with 8.8:1 compression?

Yes. Stock compression on a 351 is 8.1 with 69cc heads. The Edelbrock RPMs have 60cc chambers = 8.8

That's a wicked fast car you got there, bud... saw it first hand during the races. If I could get my 60' down a bit (switching from 4.11s to 4.30s in the near future) you and I could have a hell of a race...

Thanks.

Please say hello at the track. I am interested in seeing your car more closely. It would be informative if you could explain your list of mods and I could see the application in front of me. It looks as though our cars have a near identical power-to-weight ratio.

Could you get a shorter tire rather than change gear ratios? It might be cheaper, and if it doesn't help, you have more options.

Will do... my CCC number is T41 (NW F-body) if you want to look me up at the next CCCA race. My race weight is probably around 3800 or so with me in the car if I do my math correctly.

As for a shorter tire, I'm on 26" ET Streets right now, can't really go with a much shorter tire than that... and the gear set is pretty cheap, can be had for around $200 for a new set. Gears seems to be the easiest and cheapest way to overcome the slight bog I have about 30' out after the launch... seems to be a flat spot right there.

What about the cost of gear installation? Do you do that yourself? I do almost everything myself, but not that job.

No, I don't do rear diff or tranny work myself... I have a guy who does it dirt cheap for me though. His only stipulation is that I keep racing... so I'll keep driving if he keeps the drivetrain in good working order.
