    I knew he lowered it.I personally liked the stance when I had it.It certainly 60ft like a mofo!lol. But I’m sure he will take it further than I ever would.he’s very talented. Tom

    I'm never very close in the guessing game but I will say it's great to read about another BBB that's laying down some impressive times and it's still being dialed in!!
    Great job Nick, and keep the updates coming.

    Sorry to piggy back on your thread Nick but since Ken brought it up:
    Ken are the cast heads available for purchase yet? Thanks!

    Awesome car! Could you describe the suspension setup? It sure hooks hard for a 275 tire.

    Did you race last year at the yellowbullet in 2018?
    I checked out identical car and it’s immaculate.
    There was a nice collection of Buick’s last year.
    Great runs and a huge congratulations.

    Yes that Engine ran Very well !

    We switched to 3:55 gear prior to BG to spray to go 8.50 . On just the engine it makes power over 7300 . 850 hp in chassis dyno at the wheels
    We have been experimenting with ie ,oil pressures & pump . This engine is over head priority oiling .

    Finally after ripping up gears in BG while leaving on trans brake , we had a good pass at Cecil . Just could make one
    Leaving on the foot brake at 1500 rpm 3:55 gears it netted some lazy 1.32 sixty foot 9.28 143 shifting at 7000
    Two weeks later at Atco out of the Trailer it went 9.24 no transbrake . We made one test n tune pass 3800 rpm on transbrake 1.30 60 ft 144.7 shifting 7450 through lights easy 6700 rpm .

    The power is up stairs 7000 plus . we knew it needed more Gear so Brandon installed 3.90s . The Trap speed, ET and 60 ft should gain .
