Sweet! What were the incrementals on that pass (60' and 1/8mile ET/mph)?

Now get back to work and get my new block finished! <img border="0" alt="[jester]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_jest.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[jester]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_jest.gif" />

Cool video!

I never saw that side video before.

I forgot that Wade went 155mph, that's over 800rwhp and with a non-lockup converter!

That might be the front bumper moving downwards under the pressure? Not sure <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

Blah! That car is a piece of crap!!

JK!!

That thing is BADASS <img border="0" alt="[evil]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_devil.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[driving]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_driving3.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[evil]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_devil.gif" />

I love the way it hops up on the rear tires on the launch and floats, its almost like a boat getting up on plane etc. Also it looked like the front wheels were in the air the whole run. Almost like an NHRA Prostock!! Thats just wicked.

Does that car still have stock style suspension? or 4-link etc?

That is the fall Grand Bend Run for the Motown Muscle event right??? Let's put this run in perspective. It's cold day and poured rain for 6-8 hours before the event. The GB staff worked that track like nobody's business to get us going. A lot of street tires and cold engines dripping on the track.

I think I was in the staging lanes for that run. I vaguely remember the announcer saying something like; "Gee, he's not really setting up in grove for this launch... I'm not sure he's going to get what he wants out of this one." <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

It was a very impressive run. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

sweet run! Did it spin or get a little loose on the launch, b/c it looked like it did?!

Either way, congrats!

Get George his block so he'll stop whining <img border="0" alt="[jester]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_jest.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

I dont recall the sixty but I dont think it was that hot. (1.4x maybe)?

The car was skating all the way to the 330 foot mark AND was launched off the footbrake <img border="0" alt="[evil]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_devil.gif" />
