1st time since last September when I spun a bearing. This time on 275/60's and I got to run in the exhibition class. That was kinda cool.

Had to do alot of work on the car and only got 3 runs though.

1st Run
60 1.840
330 4.781
660 7.163 @ 100.97

2nd Run
1.714
330 4.603
660 6.967 @ 103.41

3rd Run (It hooked)
60 1.424
660 4.148
660 6.457 @ 106.00

Having Fun!

Thanks, Chuck

I'll be there on the 1st to help you out but not likely with the car. I still have to rent a trailer ($$) and I got the LA Invasion Memorial Day weekend and possibly the PSCA the week before that.

Thanks again all. Bigdog, I tell ya, this is my first time on any drag radial since the first bfg's came out and I think I'm going to be on a drag radial for a long time to come. They might not be forgiving like a slick but I got my best '60 time ever and the car just feels a whole lot more stable than any bias ply I've used.

Also, found a cool by taken by one of our local photographers

Nice runs!! I felt the same way about MT Drag Radials - after you get the car set up to hook on them, there is nothing better! I loved em...

Thanks again, everyone!

What suspension/ traction device you using?

Moroso front trick springs (forgot part # but will get it if you want), Calvert stock height leafs with a 1" lowering block, Caltracs and QA1 single adjustable R series shocks.

You said it, mang!

I really...REALLY want to run the 275's on mine.
With this being a new build I wanted to concentrate on all the other bugs first and then switch over.
We have a 275 class here that I think we would be very competitive in if I can get them to bite.
