Your Fastest ET, how fast and what combo?

What's the fastest you've gone with your quickest rod?
Was it a xxx ci?
Did you run hyd, solid, or roller?
what heads, stall and gears?
What body and what weight?
Nitrous, Turbo, SuperCharger?
Was it reliable?
What Rpm did you shift at?
What was your trap speed & MPH?

My fastest at the track was a 358ci, RPM cam, ported 882 heads, 2500 stall, 4:11 gears in an '82 firebird. Drove it 80 miles to the track, made one pass with it missing so bad i was flipping the 125hp NOS switch wondering what was going on. On the look the dizzy cap came loose. I used my shoestring to tie it back on and drove 80 miles home.
12:33 @ 110 MPH. I know it was a solid 11 second car.

My fastest was a 400SBC with a blower & 4-speed in a Monza. I never got it to the track...but it would spin 10" et drags into 3rd gear. Very fast street car.

My daily driver (very reliable) - 82 S10 longbox
350 chevy (used motor), 882 heads, 'claimer' flattop pistons (~8.5:1 CR), Crower 267HDP 210/216@.050, 112 lsa and .444 lift, 1406 edelbrock carb, performer intake, HEI dist., etc.. (I call it my "nothing motor").
TH350, 2400 stall (12"), Ford 9" w/3.50 gear and locker (only thing I spent any money on) and a set of SSM lift bars.
The whole thing weighs 3165 lbs. (1/2 tank of gas and me in it).
Best 1/4 ET was 14.05 at 97.57 mph with a 2.15 60' on 275/60-15 Yokohama Avid ST street tires. Shifted at 5200 rpm.
I've made a lot of passes on some 235/60-15 BFG drag radials and the 60' averages 2.05 but the ET's are still in the 14.0x to 14.3x range over the season (weather fluctuation).
Driven plenty of faster cars but they weren't mine.
