Nice job mike, 5.20's are getting it done.
I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.

I just wish he would quit playing with his tally whacker and stay in the gas another 600 feet!

Thanks guys and thanks to John for all the help he's given. In fact, it's his Big Shot plate I'm borrowing. I was most happy with the 1.17 60'. Bumped into the nitrous over-rev limiter several times on that pass before I got to the stripe or I think she would have gone over 130.

'70 Chevelle - stock suspension on 315 Hoosiers with a small block/glide and John loaning me his Big Shot plate. Not real sophisticated.

Congrats Mike....

Mom said if you would have just put all the effort you put into your Chevelle, in to a Camaro you would have gotten there a LOT FASTER!

Anyhow, congrats bro.

Huge disadvantage in building a Chevelle. They're sooooo heavy.

I can either divulge or withhold that information. Who's the highest bidder?
