    Yes me on board.

    Rick, I wasn't lined up to accurately measure from front to back. The total is all that matters.

    My Gutted glass hood 75 Camaro with a BBC with Alum. W/P Intake & Heads weighs 3360 no driver and my 74 glass hood Z28 SBC is 3550, no driver. high 6 sec. and mid 7s in the 1/8 on the other. My all stock 4 speed 74 Z28 is 3750 no driver. So 3920 sounds possible, but I would think closer to 60/40 on dist.

    Well send me $11.50 and I'll go weigh it again without pulling up as far. Hell, if I stay back far enough I'm sure I could make the rear weigh more than the front, as far as the scale knows. (shaking my head in disbelief ?)

    My street legal 400hp tube frame, aluminum body 81 Camaro weighs 2945lbs without driver, and my 1950 Chevy 1.5 ton 85 horsepower fire truck weighs in at 7200lbs empty, and it takes awhile to get to it's 45mph top speed, but even that is really a thrill trying to drive it to its limit.
    My goal is to keep my 55 C4 to 3200lbs, or less with a cage. I'm not going to have to buy a lot of ace$$orie$.

    Heavy can be a lot of fun, until your friends see you.

    Friday night

    ET 8.190
    speed 77.16
    reaction .379
    60' 1.730
    330' 5.161

    What in the <$1000 range can I do to go faster, the most bang for the buck. I feel the need to get in the 7's at least. Well number 1, the quadrajet did better than the Holley. I don't know if a little more tuning could change that.
    I could stand a more radical cam, as this one that is supposed to be half radical drives perfect on the street with no drawbacks whatsoever. But I don't know my valve to piston clearance, just that it was getting close, so I'd have to pull one or both heads which I'd rather not do. And I'm NOT pulling the pistons to have them cut, that's definitely out for now. Thinking about it now, I guess a better reaction time could put me in the high 7's.

    My oval port 781 casting,800 Holley D?P, 595/.621 solid cam, 10-1 forged TRWs 454 ran 7.10 in the 1/8 in a 3360 Camaro w/o driver. To get into the 6 second club required 13-1 pistons, alum heads, !050 Dominator and solid roller cam. You reach a point where you have to start over. Both 454s used the same 8 inch 5000 stall converter, th400 and 4.10 geared Dana 60 Powerlock. FYI A perfect reaction time Will Not gain you a damn thing, your et does not start until your car rolls out of the beam. Theoretically you can sit there for five minutes after green and run a 5 second 1/8.


    On second thought cutting the car up to lose 3 or 4 hundred pounds would do it.
