Hard to tell, was that a win for the Deuce?
Gotta love it...wish mine was that fast.
Got to love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would of loved to see the face on the the driver of the challenger......beautiful background, love seeing snow capped mountains in the background. Not sure i like see standing water on the track though
that put a smile on my face
That was awesome. I even kinda liked the “no need for a big burnout” when you have a ton of weight to transfer!
The white stripe tires are a nice touch!
There’s just no substitute for big bl0ck Buick Torque!
So what did that thing run if you don't mind me asking?
Funny thing is that, the Electra is about 40lbs. lighter than the Mopar according to published specs i've seen. Might have been the difference in that race.
I am guessing about 12.60 - 12.70. But I am also curious the actual time.
Still very impressed
11.42 I believe he said. It was MOVING
That IS the chit right there, skirts and all!
Actually, the best run that day was 11.47 @118. Traction was not good starting out in the day be got better as rubber got laid down and temps came up. Could not get into full throttle until right before sifting into 2nd. Finally decided to flog it from the hole and I snapped the Axles in 1/2.. done for the day. I really thinking's a perfect world and a tail wind, this thing is hovering on high 10's if I could launch it hard. Best 60' easing it out of hole is 1.78, improve on and loose some weight maybe? I had absolutely toped off tank of fuel, completely full. I just don't want to gut the car, it is full weight and such a nice car.
I weighed the Electra and was 4660 on the scales with some crap in trunk
Are there any axles that exist that are strong enough for the task?
Im running a 9" ford out of a early 70's Lincoln continental, I was using the stock 28 spline axles with a True Track Posi. I knew it was just a matter of time before I hammered them, Tom Wagner told me this would happen . I just swapped them out to 35 spline and that should do the trick.
Stk 28 spline 9," axles are very weak....weaker than our buick factory axles.......had a customer break a set in 41 Plymouth that has 355 SBC chevy in it. Was running 12.0s at that time
Beautiful car and running sweet
