    Well at first it was just too hard to do. I have to admit I love having that ability. Today we got the gas shocks and the trunk braces installed

    Hey. Thanks for all the entertainment!!!
    I live about 20 minutes from the FFR factory here in Mass. - they have an open house a couple times a year. 1 week will be all Cobras, another week will be the 33's etc. etc. etc... Last year we went with the local Model A club. It was killing me 'cause the "A" drivers, drive like old ladies.. we were on a road posted 45 MPH and those guys were putzin' along at 20 to 25! Needless to say I didn't stay inline to long! LOL.. Somewhere on here I posted some pics of that visit..

    Ethyl on the Launch 03152015-640.jpg

    On the other hand, this was my real car. The top end of the track there is around 155. The pass was 9.29

    Thanks, it was putting 1256/1503 through a TH400 unlocked convertor, nine inch Ford Rear end and 29 inch tires. The 9.29 pass was at 4050 lbs. Had a twin 62 mm turbo on a 434 Ci LSx with ETP 245 Cathedral port heads. FI Camshaft, Leash II Boost Controller and 3.53 gears. Car was tubbed.Conservatively would guess well over 1500 to the flywheel. Upped the Turbo to 67 mm DBB Comps but totaled the car before we got to the track. Last really decently performing car I will ever own. Story of the car was the different things we tried with it.

    Wow, sorry to hear you totaled it. That's a bad deal. Those turbo cars sure get with the program! Those super chargers are sweet too.
