honestly i dont know,havent goten to run the car at the dragstip or have it dynoed yet.nearest dragstrip is about 250 miles away and im still on the factory 10 bolt rear so dont want to chance breaking it.and having to pay for a tow home. should be taking it soon though, just need to get a new clutch installed in the silverado so i can trailer the car down

this sept i hope to get the car out to the salt flats to make an attempt at breaking the 200mph mark

when its all said and done im hoping for 4 digit hp with the turbos cranked up around 24psi with a 100 shot of nitrous ontop

When is your daily driver

When I saw your address I was going to tell you forget the 250 mile trip to the strip, get the rule book from the SCTA if you don't already and take the Camaro to the salt flats, If the rear end would hold up the ratio would be great. You don't have to leave hard landspeed racing so maybe?
You should have over 1,000 hp and the aerodynamics of your car will be great!

the 10bolt should have no problem holding up on the salt so i plan on using it for my land speed stuff. i have been tossing around the idea of finding a 2.29 gearset for it but they are very hard to find infact ive only ever come across 2 sets. one was in an el camino and i forget what the other set came out of.

i have some stuff i still need to do to the car to make it legal for sept. mainly i have to come up with the proper tires and disable my steering lock and door locks and get the cage in the car

the salt flats are about equal distance from the dragstrip for me but its something i deffinatly plan on doing

vegas is 260 miles from me and salt lake city is just a few more miles then that. im pretty much smack dead in the middle of both lol

My daily is an 01 Buick Regal GS. It's too bad GM never offered the L67 in a rwd platform in the US. May just have to do it myself someday........

What is your daily driver

I landspeed race only a lot slower than you will run. I run unders the sanction of the East Coast Timing Asoc. in the production pickup classes. Iset a landspeed record last Oct. on the Maxton Mile in NC. The lease on the airport runway was lost last year so all records there are locked in forever. The ECTA moved their venue to the Wilmington, Ohio Airpark in April and are going to run four events per year. Because I am a chronic insomniac We were sitting at the gate into the pits at 4:45 am that didn't open until 6:00. The entry list had been cutoff at 175 weeks before and with threatening weather and all the planning and expense I was going to get at least one run in.I had spent the afternoon before regestering, getting through tech inspection, drivers meeting etc. Anyway I was in the prestage lanes before 174 vehicles lined up around and beside me and I was called to the starting line first and made the first pass down the inagural mile. There was a 25 mph sustained wind hitting me at a quartering angle and My first run was at 132.267 in a standing mile in a 5800 lb. truck. Later I ran a best of 134 and I think if the wind had been kind I would have ran 137+or -.
Don't know if you read Hotrod Magazine but there is an article in this months mag starting on page 104 that tells about me making the first pass and I came back with two more records which I am kind of proud of.
Anyway back to you there would be nothing neater for a hotrodding gear head to make the two hundred mile club. You probably have already checked but you will have to have a fire suppression system along with the cage and seat and I imagine you will have to have a Hans devise($1,000.00 bucks).
But at Bonneville you would have an entire week to get the job done where at the dragstrip only one day or night. You will also probably have to work your way up to be liscensed to run 200 mph, but go for it while you have the chance. Eighteen months ago I was in a wheelchair and could not care for myself at all and my Doctors told my wife that I would never be any better.
Let us know your plans and how you came out.

Garrell

I hate to brag, but I normally drive a Ferrari (see low right decklid). The nice part is that this particular Farrari gets about 42 MPG in town, which saves gas for when I want to drive my T bucket

,
i knew about everything except the hans device , i didnt even see it mentioned in the rules

when i go if all else fails i can still run the 150mph club which allows me to run 150-159mph, only thing needed besides proper tires is a rollbar and fire extinguisher

i want to buy one just for the great gas mileage but the fact that the speedlimits on the highway here are 80mph, and if u go slower then say 75 u will get run the hell over kinda scares me.

is that thing even capable of a sustained 80mph lmao,prolly takes forever to get there as well

What is your daily driver

Hey being in the 150 mph club at Bonneville would be nothing to sneeze at, but it would be ashamed to think you have got the equipment to get the job done and not be able to go for it. The ECTA rulebook is patterned after the SCTA rules so I am pretty sure you would have to have the Hans device. You might start checking on Craigs List or the Racing Junk.com site and find a used one.

Did you say that was a Testacleroasta, does it have a paddle shifta, you didn't tell us what kind of gas mileage the bucket tee gets?
