Re: corvette track update....

Oh yeah, I'm on cloud 9 right now. The wheel tub carnage was really not as bad as it looked. Because of my trade I am actually pretty good with sheet metal. So I was able to get that repaired and looking good in a couple hours. And Dad is a pretty good body and paint man, so the body damage is mostl...

Re: corvette track update....

Yeah I'm pretty pleased with it right now. But I'm dying to get some tuning done to see how much there is left in it. I'm hoping to ring it out for a 9.30

corvette track update....

Okay gang, I took the Vette to Topeka on 9-24, and found out it really likes wheelies! I made 4 passes while I was there. We were just there to run 1/8 mile and I was launching it fairly hard. Running 11.40's at like 80 something mph. Then on my 3rd pass I just said screw it, and let it have it. I h...

I have a nitrous kit I want to play around with 100-150 horsepower jets. My combo is 750 ish horsepower with a TCI converter that Marty Chance retuned for my combo. It stalls at 5600 rpm N/A right now. I'm wondering if a small shot of nitrous will be overkill for that converter. I will get a dedicat...

D.A. was around 5200, 90 degrees... timing was set at 36, had a mix of 91, and 110 octane in it. Carbs...
