"gave away"? Ouch. Damn nice 60' on a 3600# all steel body w/9" slicks.... that gear didn't hurt a bit either.

Nice car and a real clean pass! Loved that launch/60' from the in car camera! Sounded like that 4.52 had you tapping the limiter a bit through the lights. What did the 4.10 do to ET vs. the 4.52?

Thanx for posting up!

On a good cool day we can now get into the high 9.30s. We also blew another motor earlier this year, and tried a new engine builder. Slowed down another tenth after he built the motor. He didn't like the cam we were using, so he put something else in, and obviously it didn't work. Also dropped launch RPMs down to 4400, from 4800. Last year we did a lot of Super Gas racing, and went through 2 transmissions and 4 torque converters. Thats why we changed gears. One thing we did learn, Coan torque converters suck for Super Gas racing.

Re: Racers.... post your times

Its interesting that you mention launch RPMs. We went from launching at 3800 rpms to 3400 rpms before I blowed up my 406 and there was no drop off in performance.

We even raised it to 3600 RPMs for one weekend to see if it would pick it up a little and all it did was throw off my reaction times.

I'm back to launching at 3800 RPMs with this 355. Probably could go a little higher but I think it'd just lead to alot of breakdowns.

Before I drove we did leave on 4400 rpms with a TCI converter. Swapped that to a B&M and that's when the sub 4000 rpm launches started, lol. With a B&M converter and a 406 leaving at 4400 rpms, the car was big time radical and impossible to drive. It'd just come up way too high, lol.

Re: Racers.... post your times

Wheelie bars. We also have a steel cable on the driver side running from the front to the rear to try and reduce body roll.

We also have metal braces bolted to the heads and frame to try and keep the motor from twisting (again, trying to minimize body roll).

There's only so much you can do with a Vega and their 96 inch wheelbase though. I think we've got the 4-link and rear shocks adjusted pretty close now. It doesn't twist very much at all and it just does bring the left front off the ground. Of course, I dont have near the motor that it has had, but even with the 406, it didnt twist too bad (by twist I mean bring the left front way higher then the right front).

Shit, I was going to say there's no way a 3500 pound car with a flat top 355 running on pump gas runs 10.70s.
