I’m speaking for everyone...when are you going to let that rig eat all the way out the back door?

Think about Dragway 42 Rock and Race.



What do you believe is holding back the 60’?
torque convertor.
Now I am loosing faith in the drum brakes. Looks like a disc conversion.

Corn doesn't like me.
We need an enclosed trailer before we make longer trips.

Re: Mark Jones 467

Rick I wish for any type of Trailer for the other two Tracks away from me by 2 to 3 Hours

The Track close to me, about 1 hour drive, has a very short shut down area of about 1/16 Mile
that if we ever get into very low 11s like below 11:49 et in the 1/4
I will have to think about whether to Cage the car and buy a Trailer to go somewhere else
or limit the car's et's for 11:50 et in the 1/4 and stay at the Track we go to now

I did a SSBC Front Disc Brake Conversion on the 67 when I was getting Hot Drum Brake Fading at the end of the 1/4
and thoughts of going off the end of the Track thru the Fence over the Hwy that goes by
and into the 6' deep Ditch on the other Side was not a good thing to do !

love sft cams also. Good power, sound great and no moving parts to go bad. Long as it breaks in well they can last 10s of thousands of miles.
Used to have the 140 off road cam in my 70z that was my 1 and only daily back then never had a problem.
