This was in October, Famoso Raceway, Bakersfield CA. I like this photo because you can see the tires begin to wrinkle while the yellow lights are still on. The R/T was .022 with E/T of 11.736. Lost to Mustang (FORD!!!) by 1/2 fender. The best E/T so far with my 55 is 11.516 and best top speed of 118.519. I had a hard time breaking through the 12 second barrier at first. But really saw improvement with 4:56 gear and a looser torque converter. That got the 60 foot times much better, and helped overall. Now that the car runs as planned, I am finishing the interior, and window/vent wings. Might add a little weight, but I only race this car for fun. And what fun!!
