Glad to see you are getting some use out of them, they never saw that much action in the twenty years they were on my truck, I probably only spum them once or twice and the flathead six couldn't do much with them. Nice video.

LOL...........yea, those are the ones. I have a great set of radials to throw on but I need to wear down those old bias plies first. I keep rotating them around to the right rear (I've got to get a traction-lock diff)

I think you need shorter gears in that rear end. It took you forever to get that truck rolling.

Awesome!!! The neighbors must love you! I know mine sure do....gotta black stripe in the street in front of my house that goes from one of my property lines to the other. Lucky for me, two of my neighbors are in the same car club as me and they've done it too. (Actually, I have very understanding neighbors that love our old vehicles....from the late night timing of the engine, to the running of the engine without the exhaust hooked up)

Shane,

Its good to have cool neighbors. Mine are pretty tolerant and I get along with all of them pretty good so it all works out ok. We all look out for each other.

Bobby

No headwind but that section of road is a little uphill.

My GPS calculated that run to be a 13 second 1/4 mile.


I took that video shortly after I put the new engine in and before I dialed in the carb, put bigger headers on and changed the transmission and torque converter....actually 2 times.... blew up the local "performance" rebuild, killed the TCI super streetfighter, and now have a drag racing unit in it.

So the truck runs a little different now. It pulls much harder and revs much higher now before shifting (I had the modulator set really conservative since the engine was new)
