I'm getting a different engine built as we speak. Old engine was 615 big m steel 10.2 block, new one 632 brodix aluminum 10.2. Just setting here in lock down doing some thinking and was wondering if I should plan on a 4 link adjustment or try it as is. The weights were 1150lbs rear and 1320 front for a 53.5% 46.5% split. I'm guessing it will be roughly 51.5 48.5 with the removal of the block weight from the front. 4-link is set at 58" out and 7" up as of now. It would only pick the tires an inch or 2 and drop them with in a few feet before. Should lose roughly 110lbs and add roughly 50hp. 1.80 glide 4.56 rear gear 33x15x15 bias slicks.

Nice launch! I can honestly say I am not sure I would screw with it before I see how it reacts. Great problem to have for sure and until you know it needs tweaking, leave it alone is my $.02...

I remember few years ago you was running a 210 t400 did the powerglide slow you down much?
It slowed it ET about .04 but actually gained 1.5 mph 1/8 mile leaving the same 4.10 gear in it. When I switched it to 4.56 it was right back were it started.

I looked at my 4 link setting and I had actually changed it late last season and forgot. It is set at 50 out 7.1 up now. 10.75 rear spread 6.75 front spread. I can make ic 58 out and 6.9 up with either 9.75 rear spread and 6.75 front or 11.75 rear and 8 front. Does the spread difference effect the way it works?
