Just your typical daily driver, older guy, dart 400ci sb, F1 procharger and drives it to and from Bandimere. Nice to see some DDs that can do well at 6000'. Totally stock suspension and not certified for...ooops

Mind you this pass was on 9 year old slicks (spun really bad, 1.61 60') and launching from like 1500rpm. I asked him the day before we went if he was gonna take the enclosed trailer or the open one and he said "What do you mean trailer? I'm driving it" haha
....that's the spirit!

Nice, that's moving. I wonder what it would run at sea level.

I bet it would spin a lot more at sea level. Nice car!

Don't know about the rest of you but the costs of my projects far exceeds my available resources lately. Been retired for several years now, and I have burned through all of my disposable income. The money I had saved and invested in the stock market is dropping faster than if I had pulled it out and bought myself a brand new Jerry Bickel built Pro Stock car with several spare Cagnazzi Racing power plants and other parts needed for a sixteen race season.

Right there with you Dave. Money is way too tight lately.
