    So, haven't you been driving the pick up on the street a lot since you detuned it ? If I had that baby the tires would be bald by now..... OH, the back ones already are. :p

    Like they said earlier, that thing would get a lot more use on the street than on the strip. I like racing too, but that is only one day a week at most, that leaves 6 days to drive to work, to the store, or just out to play in traffic.

  5. Not safe ... there is the key.

    Now ask yourself... what will it take to make it safe at this or a faster speed... and... will it start taking the fun out of it ?

    Half-Evil / Half-Donkey... whatever you're calling the current masterpiece ... is going to be fun and will always be the focus of attention. Especially if you use the Model A as a tow vehicle or just run around the pits with it.

    Besides... a warmed over 377 with a bit of spray puts you into the 10's... remember when that was really fast and really fun ?

    Good luck Dave... your builds inspire me to do mine better

    The 9.57 was with a 4150 right?.. not the multi carb set up. Stack a another plate. Ha. That'll do it. Make sure to get video though.
