Post Memorable Dragstrip Pictures Here of Your Cars And Trucks!

64 posts in this topic

This picture was taken from Tennesspeed Day in 2005, I think.  I hauled AshleyP's TA, for him, and we ran a 12.05 with a stock 455 (with the exception of an aluminum Edelbrock intake).  If I remember, it had a Jericho 4-speed, and we had a set of liftbars that were too short.  The car was very violent off the line, but the liftbars would unload too quickly.  We were shooting for high 11s.  We were going to take the car in 06, but when putting the engine back in; with different heads, bigger cam, and higher compression, the chain broke.  The engine fell from about waist high and bent the snout on the crankshaft.  That was about two days before Tennesspeed Day. We should've been low to mid 11s with that tune up.

Yeah Im thinkin Ill need upgraded intercooler so I can handle a tune with a little more boost in order to run 8.7s especially cuttin cruddy 60s.  Then again you never know, she might have it in her with alot of seat time to figure out the launch!!!  Too bad some of these ST guys who like to drag arent closer, borrow some better tires and see if I cant hang with you!

As was this one.  You see the wife wanted a ride so I turned the boost down so theoretically it would run about an 8.0.  I missed that one.  Went 7.5 with no helmet and a passenger so i got a lecture.

What did the wife say? It was fun or scare her?

Here's my old coupe and a buddy's LX at the track back in '05-06.  That was a fun day.  Our cars were almost identical except for cams so it was some great grudge racing.
