My 1/4 mile times were between 10.8-11.3 because our tracks here are plain airfields without any prep or rubber on it so you loose always at the start. I did the best runs on black asphalt some miles away from my home with a gps/gnss box which is extremely accurate and for road racing. The 100-200 km/h are easy to do everywhere but the 0-100 km/h are only possible on good black tar roads with heating the tires up with hard driving for 5 miles. I would say cold starts would be arround 4.0-4.3 sec because of the slipping tires. Its not a drag car more a race car for the roads. My drag fastback 68 is what I use for 1/4 mile etc.

  Thanks . I run the same ET range @ 122 mph so it's obvious ( and I know) I have less HP.

Yes Randy your cars are awesome and you are much longer in drag racing than I, as I said its a rod car not a drag car. Itīs really impressive on the streets. How much hp do you have at the moment and is it a 4 speed?

Modern cars often mask how important driver skill is on getting down the strip fast.

To the casual observer, it looks easy. Nothing could be further than from the truth.

  Around 530 flywheel hp and a C4 auto , 5.29 gear , 3,200 lbs. Dedicated drag car , 10" slick and great track prep are the difference. "IF" I had 700@ the flywheel , I would go a second quicker. I am working on a 374" Boss 302 with that goal in mind. 9.99 "once" with this car is on my bucket list LOL. I want to have the fastest "stock body/chassis" naturally aspirated '66. No subframe connectors , wheel tubs , additional fiberglass .

Randy you are doing exactly what I do with my 68 Fastback really 100% the same thats awesome we live 8000 km away Iīm a "young" guy you are a racing legend and we have the same idea about our drag car.

Mine is a 68 as I said, now with a n/a 438 cui Aluminium Ford Racing Windsor build by ZSR Racing Engines it runs on normal german fuel from the gas station and makes 757 hp at the flywheel. First training runs were arround 10.2 now BUT on a unused airfield with no prep only some rubber in the afternoon on the track ;-)

My 68 is also stock body/chassis except the cage. And I have 2 sets of doors, trunk lid one in light one in original ;-)

I want to go from the powerglide to a 4 speed this winter, yes call me crazy but I love 4 speed so much also with drag racing.

Please post some pictures of your car here. I want to see it. I only have seen some racing pics long time ago.
