Hi fellas. Im running a MSD 6AL with a 3 steb in the drag car. Mild BBC with a small 100 shot from time to time just incase. Im looking for a retard box and maybe even the start retard function. Is the 6AL still a good box to add this retard module to or are the digital units WAY better? I can buy a nice used retard box but got to thinking if Im leaving anything on the table by not being digital? Thanks!!

Still run a 6Al and have two spares here. One reason i haven't upgraded, and to be honest i don't think i would pick up any if i did.

I need to buy a box too, MSD 6 dig or analog?? whats best coil for the 6??
Can you still buy an analog 6al? I see they have an analog 6aln which means approved by nascar for the connector or something?

Just read up on the 6al digital, its not programable just different way of firing. Like i said i have 3 older 6 AL's so i haven't read up on the new stuff except the grid. So the 6Al digital would be fine, and i like to use the Blaster high vibration coils. Shoot me a pm on a price.

I'm putting togerther a new dragster and I was going to buy a new digital.But after taliking to some other racers decided to put a 7AL I had on the shelf in.They said its kind of a pain to have a laptop everytime you need to make a change.Also in bright sunlight you can't see the screen.So I figured why waste the $.I'm sure there are features in some classes the digital is essential, but for me a bracket racer no big deal.
