What is maximum effort to some is just 10 year old technology to others.

I can see it going 20's in perfect air but......it is an average 40's car throughout the year, dont you think?

Not bad by any stretch, I love that car, but again, us Mopar guys, no matter how much we race in NMCA, dont get the Langer Love

You must be talking about another 5 or 6 guys out of millions

That car should have dominated, and you know it

You are correct, it should have dominated, but it didn't. NMCA pro stock cars weighing the same with a restricted carb, conventional heads, ladder bars and 125" smaller went faster. Which of the 2 combos would you call maximum effort??

Thank You! It is not that easy to get it down the track, or better yet, off the starting line

That was my point, just cause you have the power dont mean it will dominate, the race still must go on to crown a winner

My point is that it wasnt maximum effort and if it was that combo could have left in high gear and idled down the track and still won.

That's all our poor Mopar team could afford, we have stepped it up to Bud for the crew this year

Come on Johnny, a 60' challenge, your Matukas/Pro Flite vs our S&W Kit/Powerglide

Mountain Motor/Max Effort??? Where do you get that from, we are under .900 lift, standard cam journal, heavy rotating assy, etc...how about you??

I'm not confident we will win, but I am confident we can stay with you

I bet you we could go as fast w/ 525 ci as we do at 596 with our heads, we just dont need to beat it like you guys.......hell, our springs went all of last year
