He should fit right in with this group.


"fe ford powered corvette killer ford truck!" That will be a tall order even for this group. That reminds me of trying to swat a fly by swinging a paper napkin at it.

Ya, depends on WHICH corvette? 70's? they would be CAKE since they were real slugs. The newer you get, the quicker they get. A new C06 would be pretty tough order.

Welcome. We are pretty good at spending others money. So bring all ya got. If your trying to kill say a 78 Vette that's easy. If you wanna kill a ZO6 that will take a little more. So what's yer plans??

My '69 only has 1.9 60ft's, so you got it pretty good! Last fall it went 13.7 on street trim. 428CJ, stock heads, 4spd, 4.56 gears(35 spline Moser, spool, Strange case). Been thru all the weak stuff, had to upgrade back in early 90's.

1.60's on stock street tires on an semi prep track? What are they stock tires for a stock Car? And keeping your ET slip a secret? what you think someone here will steal it?? LOL...

Need to hear some more about this so secret ride? Sound too good to be true?

My comunication skills leave much to be desired RJ , I was refering to stock engine and street tires on the ZO-6 , my old garbage truck has p315/60/r15 BF drag radials on rear ,and a mildly modified engine . Thanks for the info on installing photos JOHN ,but I am still having problems . I think I am just illiterate when it comes to computer crap , it keeps telling me that java something failed , guess I will have to get my 16 year old to help , AGAIN .
