Wow, what did you do to lighten it up? I thought these trucks weighed around 3000.

I run my 49 at the track for time to time.

Not sure what my truck weighs but I do have serious traction issues. I have to really feather the throttle off the line or I smoke the tires into 2nd gear.

I'm hoping to get into the 14's. My buddy has offered to lend me some slicks which ought to help a bit. It'd be nice to be able to stand on the throttle when the tree comes down without having to worry about it.

Not sure what part of the country you are in but here in Albuquerque we are fairlyt high elevation, approx a mile high. Right now I'm running mid 15's. I don't think thats too bad for my old truck.

Good luck, let us know how you did
Bobby

I built a 60s gasser style 52 F-1 with an SBC and haven't raced it yet but would like to just to see what it will do. The only problem is I have fenderwell headers and no exhaust except for Dynacore baffles at the collectors the local track here in Sacramento, Commiefornia won't let me run cause I don't have mufflers on it and it's too loud. They require mufflers now at the track because people that encroached on the property surrounding the track complained about the noise so now they have a noise ordinance. The track was out in the middle of literally nowhere and the whiners had to move close to it knowing full well there was a racetrack nearby. I'm so sick of stupid people!

epp,

Yea, when he lined up next to me I figured I was toast. I spanked him though.

I have really got to work on my reaction times. Since I have to feather the throttle so much to get rolling my reaction times have been WAY slow... .6 and .7 ugh

I'll give it another shot with slicks in a month or so and we'll see how I do.

Bobby

AH HAH!!! We knew you'd be back, Danny Boy! Now I'm on to ya. I feel so used and misled.

Seriously, I've never raced in my life, but I'd like to try it sometime. I want to see what my old Falcon will do when I get the new driveline in. Now that I think about it, maybe I should try to get the F-2 to the track first. I'm on building a work truck instead of a rod, but I'm going to put a supercharger on the little 347 to try to get good pulling power and decent fuel mileage out of the same engine. It would be cool to see what a blown and stroked small block would do in a 3/4 ton 4x4. Locking her in 4-high would eliminate traction problems. Hmmm.......
