lafinrat in the hizzouse

i'm back. a quick update for those of you not in the know...

I got the Mustang to hook and we took it to Bandi for Limited on Sunday. Best time before 9.7 w/ hi 1.4 60, best time after I messed with the chassis 9.24 w/ 1.34 short time. That's at 3570# race weight. He #2 qualified behind a small block Nova. There's still more in it. Now I need to mess with the motor a little bit on a later date.

77punk (Tony) new motor ran 11.6 @ 117-118 all day on the motor at Bandi. 3180# race weight, 3k stall, 3.73 gears. The 60's were a little slow--hi 1.6. Most likely due to the tight N2O converter. We'll spray this thing soon with a
0.052 jet and see how that goes. Anyway, it won 6 rounds and lost in the seventh to take 3rd in King Street with a huge field in what everyone knows is a tough bracket class. His new motor is...
- 4.185 x 3.83 bore and stroke, block short filled w/ concrete
- cast flat-tops, zero decked, 11.9:1 static
- cast crank, stock small-journal rods
- old school Baker heads
- Comp 256/258, 630/630, 106 cam; installed 103 ICL
- Chinese intake
- 830 Holley
- smashed up headers, 3" pipes, Dynomax bullets
The motor wanted to be shifted a little higher, but we kept it at 5900 for obvious reasons. It has no leaks or noises (so far), runs extremely smooth, and runs cold! Even with the block filled I had to run the thing in the lanes to get the temp gauge to even move--and yes the gauge does work. Oil temp is also amazing--less than 180 after a pass.

My car (the orange bucket of shit) is still giving me grief. If I don't get it going soon, I'm going to take up a new hobby--I'm thinking about sewing or Bonzai trees. What say youse?
