Talking 10.78 @ 126.89 tonight in the '69 SS

We had a nice cool front blow through Houston yesterday, so I had to take advantage of the racing weather. It was about 39F out at Houston Raceway Park tonight, not sure on the DA yet. Raceweight still 3335 lbs. Nothing changed since last time except for a new pair of axle shafts.

Previous best: 10.87 @ 125.01 (1.60)

Best pass tonight:

60'=1.57
1/8=6.90
mph=101.96
1/4=10.78
mph=126.89

Two other passes tonight:

60'=1.58
1/8=6.91
mph=101.79
1/4=10.80
mph=126.60

60'=1.62
1/8=6.93
mph=101.96
1/4=10.80
mph=126.61

Nothing broke tonight, but the tranny is acting up again. 3rd/4th gear synchro is very notchy. I plan on installing the NX nitrous kit this week, maybe I can get it done by next weekend. My quest for 9s continues...

Tony

Nice runs Tony, Congrats!

I actually have the chance to get my hands on a 1969 RS Rolling chasis. I think it would be a great project car. I think a 6.0L Gen3 block with a GMPP carbed intake would be a cool conversion.

Keep up the good work. Will be really cool to see that car in the 9's.

Trust me, taking chunks out of the engine sucks, see pic next to my name for example....
