Hope it goes a little quicker than that. I gotta run 7.99 to qualify.

Considering that's a 7 sec on nuts combination,
here's hoping for 7.40's if you get dialed in quick enough to qualify.

Why such a small cam & single carb??

top sportsman? it will be close may be a little short

Yeah T/S... I used to run a blown motor and ran 7.20's it was around 1400 horse at the time. I have 2 more stages but don't really want to dive into those until I get all the bugs worked out.


The motor has gone 4.41 to the eigth in a door car and 4.14 in a 2000 pound dragster but that was on three 200 shots

The cam and carb were limited by the class it used to run..

I would love a sheetmetal intake and dual carbs with a bigger cam, but I am limited financially right now... Lol

Got it. At 2600 lbs, with an iron headed 477" on nuts, out of my crew chiefs street/strip car,
I ran 8.30's with the nitrous gear and crossing the line under 7000 rpm.
You should qualify easy, like I said, if you get it dialed in quick enough.

Good luck.

Thanks! I will definately update everyone after the race. Maybe if I get time afterwards I will light off another stage. I want to take it a little slow since its my first nitrous combo. I have always run supercharged in the past
