Re: Racers.... post your times

Looks like an awesome build lowetz! I'm currently waiting for a new motor. Having a 425ci stroker built with W5 heads. Ditched the blower. Gonna be looking for low 11's on the motor and then I'll hit it with a 200 shot (to start hehe). Should be fun. Hoping to have it ready before the tracks close this fall, if not then she'll make her debut in the spring. I'll post up pics when the engine is done.

Re: Racers.... post your times

Well, well..... it would seem you have become ternimally afflicted with this evil, currently uncurable diesese as well

I remember a couple years back when we were all happy with the current(at the time)power we were making, and saying "that's it" Haha .... Right.... LOL!

Congrats on getting the stroker build started! Gotta love big inches! Sounds like yours is gonna be a brute.

Absolutely NOTHING like 500 rwtq at 4300 rpm's on MOTOR
Blowin' the tires OFF at 65 mph gets some looks from folks

Hit it with the hose and be prepared to change your drawers. I recomend depends

Now im running on 7 cyl and ran a 8.7 in the 1/8th. this is really starting to suck. The exhaust is so hot, it is burning up the plug wire almost immediately. I wrapped the exhaust and put boots over the wires. I don't know what else to do. any ideas on getting the exhaust temp down?
What ECT's are you seeing, and have the EGT's been measured?

When you say "boots", are you refereing to plug wire sleeves(Nomex)?

If so, and you're still burning wires, then try re-routing them?

Sounds like EGT's are off the chart.

Yup, it's a horrible sickness...and I'm loving every minute of it!

Yeah, I can still remember when I saw a Dakota running 12.5's back in '02, I said to myself, "Man, if my truck could run mid 12's, that would be all I'd need" LMFAO!! Big fat lie right there.

Mr. Luos.... nothing slouch about your build, and nothin' to feel bad about. The two things you're fighting are weight and mother nature, and nine times out of ten she wins. You're also still enjoying all the creature comforts.... while I'm either sweatin' or freezin' my balls off.

Two completely different applications/build directions.

Bring that beast down here(ATL.), and I bet you'd think you gained another 50ci's.

Thanx for the props!

While I do race mine, it really doesn't see all that much track time.
Mostly a street car.

Still, I love the pictures you posted. It does look better than mine.

Re: Racers.... post your times

Update from my post on Page 6. After dropping valve seat earlier this year, engine has been bored to a 638. Threw away the Coan converter and put in a hughes, and had Rupert go through the carb. Picked up a bunch early on, but losing steam on the top end. Thinkin it needs a little looser converter. 60' times dropped, and am pulling 2.22 g's at launch. As you can see, 1/8th mile times have slowed, but picked up in the 60' and 330'.

1. 2004 Worthy 235" 4 link, mono shock dragster
2. 638ci BB Chevy on Alcohol
3. ??????
4. Hughes powerglide
5. 4.10
6. 60' = 1.080 1/8th = 4.81 @ 142 1/4 = 7.60 @ 173 (video below)
7. 33.5x17x16 Hoosiers
8. Haven't weighed it yet.

Re: Racers.... post your times

Just so some of you guys know, don't just think because of 60' times or 1/8th mile times will give you an estimated 1/4mile time because it won't. I've been drag racing for a 10 years with a 73 Vega with a 383 best time of a 10.65 In the 1/4. But my 60' times were 1.277 but by the 1/8th mile the small block just couldn't keep pulling at the big end. I went threw the traps at 7200 rpm. It was fun. Now I have a 434 sbc without such a low gear and it pulls lower 60' times and runs 9.20's in the 1/4....
