    If a wedge engine was going to run these low ETs I would have thought it would be a MAX wedge. At one time I thought a 63 Dodge maxie was running FAST. :Do No:

    The other motors wont make as high RPM horsepower as the hemi so between the effiency down low and running less weight(car) is their advantage. Remember, it's drag racing not dyno racing even though you want as much horsepower as possible. It's the combination! Some cars are running 540+ cubes. The FORDs can do this with the 429 stock blocks.:shock:

    It is impossible to get around the design limitations of most engines.

    Hemi engines were designed for racing, and adapted to street use.

    Their power capabilities exceed all other production engines.

    For all you design engineers out there, "design intent" is where the horsepower starts.

    Of course, traction is the big equalizer in any class of drag racing, especially F.A.S.T.
    A car with significantly less horsepower than Dave could beat him, IF it can launch harder. Not that Dave launches all that soft, mind you .....

    Amazing how fast those cars have gotten in FAST. Launching on those little tires and running times like that is a mystery to me.

    I am simply amazed at how that car launches.:shock: They are very front heavy in pure stock form from the factory.

    Those 429 CJ and SCJ heads came with some serious sized ports from the factory. I cannot recall their flow numbers though. It has been a long time since I saw one.

    Very impressive Dave !
    I have always admired those stock appearing classes.

    Too bad there is not a 1980 and later stock appearing class tho. :(

    I would love to put our 87 460 Turbo Coupe in that type of racing. :)
