Well I've joined you as of today. I really like good off idle performance but missed the high rpm zing of a conventional high performance build. Today drove the Track-T for about 40 miles with its new engine, a Dart block sbc 427. Dyno's at 526 HP @ 5700 and 556 lb/ft @ 4400. Because the intake is taller I will have to massage the hood to get it back on.

Though I'm in California, that was why I bought from Scott too. Many stories of his race engines going season after season untouched. That is uncommon for the flogging a race engine receives. I figure if his race engines are that tough, then his street engines ought to be pretty good too. Plus he is able to produce big HP at just 5700 and gobs of torque at 4400. I only have those 40 miles of experience, but in my light weight ride it scoots.

The lighter the car, the less tire spin and more hook and book. Ran Sacramento Raceway with the 355 which had 386 HP, 10.8 @ 132. I would say the 526 HP 427 would be at least a second faster. Weight makes such a big difference for going fast, cornering, and stopping. For over 40 years I had hot rods in the 3500~4200 lb range and now I've decided not to fight The Laws of Physics, going with 1790 lbs. Had I done this 40 years ago, their would have been a lot less hot rods in my garage over the years.

Try light weight, you'll like it. Carroll Shelby had it right.

One of my heavyweights about 25 years ago, and before my beard turned gray.

what you said I 100% agree with.Thats why so many people with their 383s have no chance against all the kids with Civics with V-teca. The import guys all have 200 hp or more in 2300 pound cars. Then match that against even a 400 hp 383 and watch the imports dart to 60 MPH leaving the big V-8s spinnin their wheels

At that my friend is why I cover things up. First, the Asian Tuner set has no idea I'm lighter than them, and with my narrow engine cover and exhaust tucked up underneath my ride, they assume I'm a 4 cylinder too. Notice the bulge in the side cover for clearance of the Ram's Horn exhaust.

Hydraulic roller. I meant when at car shows with the engine not running you always here spectators comment to each other "Must be a Pinto 2.3 L 4 banger". When the engine is running the cat is out of the bag.

I only took it up to 125 on yesterday's short test drive.
