Udpate June, 2009
We had the truck out for its first passes down the 1/4 mile at the Gasser Reunion race in Thompson, OH
It ran hard and straight. I'm still learning how to drive it consistently.
It ran a best of 11.72 at 113 mph. Not bad for an old truck with an inline 6 cylinder.
Update Nov 2010
We blew the engine up last summer (wrong cam) and rebuilt it over the winter. This time we used a billet roller cam - everything else the same. The engine makes a little bit less peak HP but more torque. The truck seems to like it. We only got to a 1/4 mile track once this summer but it ran 11.60 @ 114.9 mph. We took about two and a half tenths off our 1/8 mile times as well.
We did get a cool pic of the truck leaving the line and you can see air under the front tires!
