Default First time out in my 1971 Nova

First full pass in my Nova I've been working on for a few years now. Its a 406 sbc car w/ Pro-filer 220cc heads, 700r4, 4.11s on 275 M/T E/T's. Lots of guys said my 60' was way off from what it should be. It felt pretty strong to me but its the fastest thing I've ever owned.

Congrats on the pass; I agree that 60 foot needs to be a little lower (if you're dead hooking). There's a good tenth or so you can drop from that. This past weekend my Nova was between 1.55-1.59 on the 60 foots from a 275/60 M/T and 7.21 at 94.41 best.
Good seeing another X-body on here!

my best pass in the mustang is a 7.43 at 91 with a 1.63 60ft. I figure with a 1.5- 60ft you should be in the 7.20 range

The 60' will drop with just more seat time, finding what launch method works best for the car, ie: stalling it up or launching off idle.
