very very very cool...
Can this car be driven daily(short and long distance) on that motor? I'm just curious.
love the chevy six in the stude. very cool. congrats on the pass and good luck this weekend.
Car is built for the track. It also runs on elky. But with it's gearing I'm sure it would be a nice street ride. 3.70s are street able.I beleave that's what the rear gear is now. And i don't remember what Boost he is running.
Wow....you guys beat me to it......Sunday went great....as you have already been told....and yes the gear is 3.73...and no it is not very streetable....the block is totally filled....only water in the head....but thanks for all the kudos....its a blast to drive....and also a blast to listen to these guys.....very smart...very very smart.....and very passionate , we all are....about this car....i have sure learned a lot ....I try to be a sponge when I am with them.....We already have big plans for next year....more boost....more cubes.....more Fuel....and if they have thier way...a driver who goes on a diet this winter....I just told them to kake more power....HA HA HA....I will post pictures tonight....my dad got some great wheels up shots....and great engine pictures....thanks again...BC
any vid? i would love to hear what that thing sounds like!!
No...no video...sorry.....and someone asked how much boost....hard to get perferct reading ...but...usually mid 20's.....and we did NOT put on the big turbo yet...they changed thier minds...so sunday was still working on the tune with the bigger port nozzles.....but what a way to go into winter......
Great JOB Bill
I didn't mean to jump the gun on you. But I had to
2 bolt mains? so? Chevy 194-292 6 bangers have SEVEN main bearings. the only issue with them in High Horsepower situations is Torsional Rigidity... THey need to be balaced perfectly and have a very good Dampener on them... or they like to break cranks.. usually at about the 5th Main Cap...

Hey Bill Sorry I beat you again .Ok Guys Here is some video. Of the Stude.http://video.xanga.com/Fireside_memories/ccc2f542586/video.html
that vid is wicked man! thanks for posting it.
Hey Your welcome. I'll be adding it my web site Once I get the hard
copy. To go along with the Others. The Thanks really goes to Leo's Crew Chief.
Thanks T6, It was a treat watching Bill make that run, he's an awesome driver. For me working with Leo and the crew, talkin' the changes we need to make and wonder why the @#^%$#%% thing won't go this time, is where the fun is. It's really beginning to wake up and Bill puts on a great show smoking the tires and wandering around the pits afterward, his eyes rolling around, mumbleing something about, "WoW, thErE suuRRe seeMMs too BEE a LOT of AlcHOOhall Fumes IN tHhERE". (Sorry Billy, the devil made me do it!)
Wow....cool vid....the only problem with driving it....is ...I never get to see it go down the track......and as far as the fumes......its the best high in the world....even better when it goes in the nines.....only thing our crew chief and owner need to work on ....is ONLY MAKING ONE CHANGE AT A TIME......right Armond......anyway....thanks for posting the vid....and for all the great times this summer....BC
Your Welcome Bill
Just keep it inline and rubber side down.
This link also has a few other videos from the Bonneville salt flats and pictures of many other six powered cars. Troll around, can't hurt!
Sure it can It could give someone The Inline fever hehe
Aw T6, what could that possibly hurt? Might feel good! Have you seen the January 2008 issue of Hot Rod? I was going to dump the subscription post card in the trash till I saw the Bonneville write up. Love that old iron. I'm surprised they didn't have a picture of the Ferguson's streamliner. 300+ with a Jimmy ain't shabby. Don told me it ran on nitro and exhaust valves.
Nope I haven't bought any of them Mags In a long time now. Not time to read them let alone just flip thought one.
Well we have a real update.....after that run on the video....we went to a chassis shop for a new cage and front struts.....and next thing we new....all that was on the jig was a roof and quarter panels.......so here we are 1 an 1/2 years later......all chrome molley...6.0 cert kickin new car....and first day out...after a little tuning....9.62 at 138......and the car is driving into tire spin at 30 to 40 feet.....and I am pedaling like crazy...soooo....all new spring and chassis re scaled....Epping here we come....if it ever stops frekin raining here in the north east....
Amen to the rain.
Maybe an ark wb a better use of all our times.
Good luck at Epping nephew.
Hey....thanks....I didnt know you were on here
I'm happy you finaly jumped in here for a up date this, i was begaining to i had to go find this topic lol But anyway you guys will get it stuck to the black top Then she'll need wings to hold it down and back hehe. Great job
here`s a good write up about that car....http://www.customdesignperformance.com/leo/leo.html
Fantastic............. V8's are just a passing fad anyway
Its all about the 6's boys. Keep up the good work, you're making room for us 6 cylinder lovers everywhere.
Leo may need to write a new book, it seems some new tricks have been learned since the original. Oh yeah, I'd buy it.
That's outstanding stuff right there.
