    122 mph? What does your car weigh? What kind of dyno numbers did it put down?

    12.4 is good, but with that trap speed and a better 60 foot, you could run 11's Im sure. Sucks about your rear end. I broke my 7.65 ring and or pinion gears a total of 4 times in 3 differant 6 speed TA's. And I never had more than just bolt ons. They need a bigger unit.

    Ok. Would be real interesting to see your dyno sheet and timeslip. At a guestimated raceweight of 3500 lbs, it would take a calculated 496 HP (at the flywheel) to run 122 mph, which matches your 435 RWHP pretty well.

    122 mph is good for 11 flat in a properly setup race car, and mid 11's for a well setup street car (street car applies in this case). Obviously he had serious traction issues, so with work, his ET will certainly improve dramatically.

    No intent to diss you dude. Takes time, practice, work, and money to get a car "dialed in", so to speak. You'll get there.

    Pls do post dyno and timeslip.

    Tks.
