    Last Sunday, I washed the Monte Carlo up and we headed to the track all ready to lay down some passes... and it ended up being a race day not a test & tune like I thought. I even had Dawn talked into running the Monte down the track. I think she is just a bit intimidated by the Trans Am and needs to try a few passes in something a little more "user friendly" like the Monte. Maybe next trip down we'll have the opportunity.

    It actually does jump pretty good from a dead stop. 3.73's in the back with not too big a tire.

    i had a 2400 stall and had 1.9 2.0 60fts. on street tires but that car didn't reallt have enough power to have the need for sticky tires.

    Ya they aren't bad for a 305. All you guys know that this just isn't a basic 305 you found in an impala around that time frame,,,,right??

    They were the same 305 HO's found in the first rendition of the 3rd gen Z28 camaros. Different cylinder heads, higher compression, different camshaft etc... They'll lay rubber in second gear and move along decent for what they are. 15's aren't a problem at all for the Gbody.


    For a little different swing on things, I took the original 307 from my 71 ventura (smaller bore, but longer stroke) and stuck a 224 XE cam in it, performer intake and 600 double pumper,,,and with 3.08 gears and a 254 muncie I went 14.17 at 98 mph with it,,,lol. The rest of the 307 was stock with 60,000 original miles. Don't underestimate the little motors, Jeff is liable to come out and embarrass someone.
