Finally made it to tnt at north star dragway in sanger tx, Saturday and sunday little small block 70 chevelle went 6.38 off the showroom floor,86 pill in barrel valve that came in it and 25* timing locked, straight as an arrow, crew chief said it has no or hardly no front end rise, little to none rear squat, "it just goes", nothing dramatic. tried richening it from a 86 to an82 pill and it slowed down, tried advancing timing to 27, no change, went back to 25* and leaned it with a 90 pill, 6.31, advance timing to 27, 6.25, and its 18:30 its time to go home. Overall very pleased with the performance of the car so far.
Power should be 55-75 with a 7800 shift point, never made it that far, did not nose over but just seemed to pull to a certain point and that's it, wound up shifting at 68-7 and all worked well, might rpm more with some more tuning, we will be racing at Ardmore dragway in springer ok this weekend, here's a rundown of the car; 70 chevelle full tube chassis with funny car cage cert to 7.50, weight ?,
408 iron ls, L92 heads with a mild bowl blend, 16:1 compression, straub hyd roller, edlebrock super vic , rons flying toilet manual fuel injection, glide with brake and 1.80 straight cut gears in a super case, transmission specialties 8" 5900, 9" with 4.86 gears, 32x16-15 goodyears out back.
Cam card is "somewhere", maybe Chris can post if he has time and some of y'all want specs.
Still more tuning to do, gonna run it like it is Friday, might make a change after racing and run that Saturday, then make a change and run that sunday, still have not made a trans brake launch and bottle is still on shelf in the shop.
