Went to the track rental today with my 70 Mach1 408c. First pass, blew the tires of 2.72 60 ft. 13.76.
Second pass 1.99 60 ft, 12.66 @114mph
Third pass hit second gear, backend hooked to the right, touched the center line, almost hit the other car. Brought it back in my lane and the car was bouncing back and forth and allmost lost it. Posi unit not working. Only heated right tire. Engine has great power and I think it will go deep in the 11's when I get it fixed. RAY

....Making more power than you can put to the track is a better problem to have than not enough.....

Stick with it & Good Luck, Ray!!

428 rwhp is a handful, huh? After dumping out the draws, you have to say to yourself, "jeez, let's do that again!!"

Will meatier slicks fit?

I don't think I can get a bigger tire under it. These are three year old Hoosier Quick Times that have been run on the street for three years. I think they are somewhat dried out. The posi unit not working was the biggest problem. With a Detroit locker and some true slicks 28x11 I don't think I'll have a problem. Other than a spool, is there anthing other than a Detroit Locker that will work? RAY

Ray glad you didn't get hurt.
What kinda of launches were you able to do?
I wish I had that problem too.TO MUCH POWER it must be nice.

Ray I think with the locker and even 10 slicks you'll be there.
Did you get any pictures,I'd love to see your car making a pass.

Spool and street don't like each other and since it looks like your ride will be seeing dual duty, the Detroit Locker and some new weenies are a starting point for sorting that monster out. They sound neat going around corners too.

Are you happy with it?
Do you know who is the manufacturer?

It really looks great!!!

Thanks for the heads up on the bad goods from carhoods.com.

I do really like the look, Ray!
