It has taken me a long time......but I can die a happy man lol....

Just thought I would share my success, with the help of this forum and a good friend I was able to crack the 9's after trying for several years. Best previous was 10.54 @128 on motor. I just needed a little spray :p

I ran Monday at my local track in Sportsman (no electronics) in my 86 pumpgas 408. I mixed in a little C12, retarded the timing, changed in some cold plugs and hit it with a 125 shot.

This resulted in my first 9 second pass!

Not bad for a pile of used parts!

Made it to the second round of eliminations. But how the heck do you not redlight when your dial-in is 10.04 and the guy in the lane next to you has 18.0? He was 3/4 of the way down the track before I got the green! I think there needs to be an ET cap for my local sportsman category lol!
