That's pretty light, I assume no driver. How far are you from race ready?

Is coming along good. Got lots to do to get it race ready. But the motor ruining in the car is a big step forward. But it right promptly pumped a ton of oil out, so it's not without some legwork yet. And I mean enough oil to where it wit registering pressure. Pity too, vr1 is pricey.

wish mine was that light.
I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.

Its going to be fast at that weight. Cool.

I've spent the last few years taking weight out of my car and now there is a new class that will be very affordable and fun but I'll have to put 250 lbs back in it. At least I can move it around as necessary.

There won't be much class for me except bracket and street car stuff. And whatever class Mike Peters is running so I can try and pick on his Chevelle.

Don't worry Hitch, you won't need to try too hard to pick on his car.... :nutkick:

:shock: I don't know how fast, but I know it's fast because it's not a nova or a camaro and is a chevy. :shock:

By default I have to maintain a comradery with mike, because we are from the same town. So I have to side with team Chevelle on this one Bruce. Hopefully he takes the same ground. What do you say Mike? Corvettes and Chevelles vs nova and camaro... :nutkick:
