That’s big of you. Putting a Yates head, which isn’t stock Cleveland valve angle, against a 23 degree cylinder head. I actually wore that shirt from 83 to 84 everywhere I raced. I’m still alive also. You just proved my point, they take everything so personal. Thank you for making my point. Why don’t you challenge me to a Cleveland head against a CFE 15 degree? I already know the answer, but lighten up Francis. I already explained why I won against better heads locally. I ain’t that smart, they were just that much less smart. Hope that explains it. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the sbc has won more races, more championships, and set more records then any other engine in dragracing. I’m not embarrassed by what I run. If you like what you run, run it, and be happy.Exactly , you have no proof of the 429/460 getting a break. From what I found the Fe did , but that’s a different engine combo altogether. I’ve seen chevy guys butthurt , ford guys butthurt , and many Mopar fans butthurt. I would say the GM camp is the most up in arms about losing. Being completely honest. I bet you didn’t wear that shirt to any NHRA events from around the 78-89 area, when gliddens Fords were putting nearly every rat in sight on the trailer Lol. I will put a factory style Yates head against any 23 degree head. It just plain works better.
I also outran the Blue Thunder stuff, and SVO stuff just a short 4 year’s ago with, get this, the 30 year old Dart Buick. By, .3. But, again, Bob Glidden wasn’t there. Didn’t stop them from getting their feelings hurt though. Was either number 1 qualifier, or number 2 qualifier each weekend. The cars that qualified ahead of me were an SB-2 by .01 and a John Lingenfelter 15 degree by .06. Everyone else was in the way. Won one, runner upped at two. But, this argument will never end, so good luck.
