Glidden goes a quarter!
http://www.dragracingonline.com/agent1320/2008/1320-x_8-41.html

During Gateway International Raceway's annual gigantic Mega Test prior to the annual NHRA U.S. Nationals, Bill Glidden answered a question on the mind of just about every ADRL Extreme 10.5 fan. Based on his recent 4.20/170-mph eighth-mile pace, just how quick could Billy go if he ran his Mickey Thompson Tires Pontiac GTO another 220 yards?
Running with no less than two dozen Pro Stock and Pro Modified competitors, Glidden's single four-barrel carbed, nitrous oxide-aided small block Ford-powered Goat clocked two eighth-mile runs of 4.23/170.26 and 4.25/168.98...and then ran it to the quarter-mile finish line! The results were fairly astounding: testing new M/T rubber compounds, Glidden ran 6.561/208.14 and 6.566/211.76, respectively, to lay claim to the title of World's Quickest Unblown Small Block in both 660 and 1320
==================================
thats just flat out flying!!!

Yes, there is a thread about it. Just think, he went 4.25 @ 172 at ADRL.

Mr. 5 speed has just been put on notice!
