Agreed. Street cars FTW. The car also has drag radials on it, not slicks, 1.25 60ft.
This car is what I want to follow. I don't expect to go as fast but I want to build an 8 sec street car. We have guys around here with huge big blocks with 15:1 compression in gutted cars running mid 9's and think they are fast. I got in an argument with one of them one night because he has a rail running very high 8's. He proceeds to tell me "this 555 bbc is no joke, it will make a man out of you in this rail". I proceed to tell him "You know what kind of people build rails? The ones who can't make a car go fast. That turned his *** more red than a beet!
Anybody can build a full fledged drag car. Hell, my grandmother can build a drag car. Building a stupid fast street car is something else. To be able to cruise around town with the a/c on and go to the store, then go to the track and click off some 8 sec passes then drive home is the ultimate ****!
