Man! you must have been smoking I don't know how the 1/8 mile compares to the 1/4 but that sounds pretty quick. I'd stick with what you got.

What gear are you running? Is your timing set to the point it starts banging as you cross the finish line? If not set it at that point and you'll get the most out of what you have. What engine are you running?

8.90s ain't too shabby. My buddy's Chevelle with a 402 ran 8.90s in the 1/8th. What's was your 60ft time?

thanks for the vote of confidence. i,m running a 373 gear and my 60 ft. times are 1.95 right know. my timing i,ve tried advancing it and run 9.11s. so i tried retarding it and it worked better. still have to remove some leaf springs for weight shift(hopefully it,ll help more) and uncap the headers and see what happens. the motors a sb350.thanks fellas

MAN!
Im scared to take my Gremlin now. Im thinking it will only run about 9.30-10's in the 1/8th w3ith the setup I have. And its tubbed and everthing. Makes me feel kinda wimpy. :o .
Thats a great time though. I dont know what more you could do except add headers, chip(if ones made), deeper gears or some kind of msd box for better spark. Sounds great to me. HG

Oh yea. HCHEETWOOD.
For 1/4 mile times, they say add about 4 seconds to your 1/8th mile and its a close guestimation. HG

Im not sure if your asking me or Joe, so in case, Its me, I'll give ya mine.
350, stock heads, flat top pistons yielding around 9-1 comp, small cam, 480liftX280 duration, Edelbrock intake, vacum advance 600 or 750 carb(not sure), dual point dist, stock exhaust manifolds running into sidepipes.
Tranny is a 2 speed powerglide with a stock convertor, 4.56 gears with 31 inch tall tires.
Id say the motor makes a conservative 280-300 horses, but the 2 speed tranny hurts me on takeoff with those big tires. HG

Joe...I am assuming you have headers,if not get some.To make it really quick in the 1/8 mile try some 4.88:1 or 4.56 gears for the strip and run your 3.73s on the street. After you get your spacers all set up and change the gears a couple of times you'll be able to do it in less than a hour.I use to do it every week on my Camaro only I had 3.55s for the street. Run some real sticky tires. You'll need them. The thing will be a rocket.

I have always heard, and it seems to hold true, that you add 50% of the 1/8 mile time and that will give you 1/4. Of course this is just a rule of thumb, and some combinations will vary a little.

Nice run dude! Most of the guys I see running trucks have the hardest time with their launch. That's a great 60ft time. My budy ran his Valient Thursday night (street night) at our 1/8 mile track and pulled between 8.89-9.97 and he's got a pretty wicked 340 engine and 4.11 gears. Would make a nice run against your truck.

Wow a full 1.1 second swing. Was that bracket racing?

Sorry Chris, my bad. Typo error there.

Should have said 8.89-8.97. Oops!
