You cut a good light on that run, Johnny!
Static compression is only a reference. Dynamic compression ratio (DCR) dictates fuel usage. A practical max is 8.0 DCR for pump fuel if you have...
Any recent work on this beast?

It was good to see you there, Johnny! The Studebaker is lookin' great.
My primered coupe has rubber all over it from drag strip burnouts a couple weeks ago. I'm OK with that.
Tried to replace a lifter in my 351C without pulling off the intake. Of course it had to be one in the middle, just beyond the large access holes.
Gabe, I saw Shadyside pics on the SEGA FB page. The car looked awesome. How did you do?
Ed hit a 12.05 on one run. That thing will move!

Thanks bread. I ran a best of 13.17@105 mph at our Run What Ya Brung yesterday. Slicks bit hard and bogged the motor. I gotta learn to work the...
What time is everyone showing up at the strip?
It's kinda like women. If there's a room full of 'em, you'll gravitate to the type you like. But if there's only one around and she's plain Jane,...
Their Facebook reply to my question said there is generally 7 or 8 elimination rounds depending on turnout.. So we should have that many chances...

Looks like they have a lot going on Saturday. SNDR and Summit ET Series race....
Slicks are mounted and the headers uncapped. Time to go to the strip.
Used a '66 Mustang roof as an insert on my A coupe.
My original roof insert was made from a piece of worked-over 20 gage flat sheet. It didn't have enough crown so I ripped it out.
I read here that...
Are you gonna make it, Scot? I'm hoping to finish my roof insert fill this weekend.
I can't wait to see it in person. I'm planning to make Baileyton.
Shadyside got rained on and delayed two weeks. That should give you some breathing room.
I decided to re-do my roof insert using a '66 Mustang donor. I've rough trimmed it so now it's on to the tedious task of fitting, TIG welding,...
I bought some M/T ET Drag bias ply slicks. Now to find a shop that still bubble balances...
Not that I noticed. It's .063" thick 7075T6 and the bead role helps stiffen it more.
My wife modified some of the cheap Summit seat covers to fit the Aircraft Spruce buckets. I lowered the seats another inch for helmet clearance....
