11.95 at 113mph this gives me the b-body heads/cam record and did so without a lot of weight reduction or high dollar parts other use. I am pretty pumped, freinds said I managed to pull the drivers front tire a few inches off the ground with the low 1.6 60ft times.

Just for clarification this is a stock shortblock. This is also a driver put 7K on it since this heads and cam went in the end of april and these times were at Great Lakes Dragaway which is 150miles each way from home.

There is a track 40 minutes from home but it closed a month ago and the last night is always such a zoo it is not worth even trying to go so my last trip there was mid september and it was so foggy they closed I ran 12.4s repeatable that night.

I am going to try to go again in the coming weeks, I want a wheel up pic, imagine a 18 ft. long two ton grandpa car with a wheel in the air, have to get it blown up for the living room wall.

Congratulation on getting into the 11's. When you go out to Great Lakes Dragway that's a long day. Do you drive it or trailer it out and back?

Dammit man!!! That's cool. If you get a wheels up pic on that thing, I'm sure it will make pic of the month - heck I'll print out a copy of that and hang it in my shop. Great job. Clay

I drove it, like I said up top since I did this heads and cam the end of april I drove it over 7K miles, it really is that drivable.

http://advancedinduction.com/timeslips/Dwayne1195.jpg is a link to the timeslips, all I have for now.

I know most of you will drool over that 60ft but I think I may be greedy and try for a 1.59. This was 3.73s and 26x10.50 Hoosier QTPs might try 4.10s and 27x11.50 QTPs but they are on heavier rims. The final drive would be a little more favorable though.

What the hell is 60'? look at mine and laugh. The back door is pretty impressive! Honestly, if I can get mine in the 1.4 range the car will haul.

A 1.59 for that big a$$ car is too good to be true!!!!!!! Shocked Great Job!!!!

I know my 60ft. is good as is, heck the whole package is good but we wouldn't be gearheads if we didn't want MORE or less(time) as the case may be.

By spring I want to have instant cernter brackets in it too and maybe aftermarket rear upper control arms. I already have some cheapy BMR lowers.

The 8.5" 30 spline axle is awesome early this year I was still running the stock Auburn which never failed, this has an eaton and Motive gears but is otherwise stock hardware and shafts.

I NEED to deal with paint yet I know Embarassed . This is a friend's album and the vidoe low quality. From what he says you can not see the tire lift here but in high resolution you can see that it does not spin for the first few feet.
The track photographer said he missed my best launch because he never expected it to leave hard, said there was like 3" under the tire. He tried after than and got one with it up but barely.

Damn, helluva job man. Spanking a 700-800lbs. lighter Rustang is always a good thing, but by a full second after he got at least a .5 second jump on you off the line? Fahgeddaboudit.

What RPM range are you in when highway cruising?

I don't have any datalogs handy and the car has no tach so I do not know off the top of my head but with 3.73s 27" tire and a lockup converter it is not bad atall. According too mat5h it would be like 2300 at 70mph little less even.
Currently using 27" slicks too, for my 11 second passes I borrowed some 26" but traction was inconsistent.

For spring I am hoping to have 4.10s and some 275/55/17s(almost 29") tall street tires to tame the 4.10s on the highway. That would be 2300rpms=68mph so close too what I have now for street duty but little more hit off the line with the 27" slicks.

I know the almost 29" tires on the street sounds goofy but stock the b-body got 27-28" tall tires so it is reasonable.

More I research the more I realize I was severely short shifting this pig too 6050rpm 1-2 shift finding out I should be a few hundred rpms higher.
