    We have a pretty big weekly car show about 8 miles from my house. So, I trailered the car down to a nearby parking lot . . . rumbled in . . .and parked amongst the street stangs.

    The car drew a crowd of about 30 people as soon as I pulled in and popped the hood. Everyone just swarmed around it all night.

    The crowd was equally attentive when I left . .. the only thing louder was the jet car . . . lol

    It was a lot of fun. :bunny3:

    The best thing about that show is that it's every Saturday. Its amazing that week after week, that many cars show up.

    I honestly didn't have time to look at any of the other cars because I was answering so many questions about the race car. Guys were just freakin out over it.

    Where's your specs? I'm curious.

    And do you have a roll bar for that speed at the track? Do you know what the speed limit is for required roll bars. I just put in my SC last fall and I'm finally getting it Dyno Tuned on March 10th. I'll be running it on April 14th. Wondering what my numbers will be and what the rules are.

    :drunk:

    Here are the specs . ..

    World Man o War 427 block
    Mahle Pistons (15:1) compression
    Eagle forged rods and crank
    Brodix Track One 225 CNC Heads (flow 334 cfm)
    Solid Roller cam (approx .750 lift)
    Jesel Shaft Rockers
    Crank Trigger
    Ron's Fuel Flying Toilet alcohol injection
    CHI Dominator Tunnel Ram intake
    Custom 2 1/8" headers
    Art Carr C4 (full manual, reverse pattern with Pro Tree transbrake)
    Hughes Converter (5400 stall)
    Detroit Locker (with 3.73 gears)
    Moser 31 spline axles
    Competition Engineering Anti-Roll bar
    Maximum Motorsports adjustable LCAs
    UPR adjustable UCAs
    UPR moly K-Member, A-Arms
    UPR Coilovers (14" 175 # springs)

    I could type for another 20 minutes or so, but those are the basics.

    The car has a 14 point custom cage (check my build thread at the top of the Garage for all the gory details)

    If you are in a hardtop, you need a 6 point roll bar to go faster than 11.5. The 6 point will get you to 10.0 . . then you need a cage, chassis cert, and a 9 second license.

    If you are in a vert, you need the 6 point at 13.5 . . but everything is the same after that.
