    I think 9.89 is pretty quick when things are 'right' too.........

    No, I didn't. Brian was not able to get parts to fix the Lenco in the nitro car in time, so he didn't make it, and I was mostly going up there to see him....oh well, maybe next time? He's talking about setting up another race in May.

    I never made it to the track with the 4bbl, and right now I'm in the middle of getting the blower back on it. Sorry.

    I decided to change the points while the distributor is out....I had a set of hardly used points from another distributor that a friend gave me. Although the points that were in the car all this time, were still working ok. They were getting a bit worn, though.I also got the blower intake milled for an O ring, because this style intake just doesn't work well with a gasket, and sealer doesn't work very well, either. Although the second to last pass I made with it was a 9.89, which is pretty damn quick, for things being "wrong".

    Wow. As usual Squirrel knows all. I didn't know the Shaker Hot Wheels exists. It is going for $20-$30 because it is our of print. Here is the timeline:

    Quite obviously somebody saw Plan II in Hot Rod and said "Oh Boy we can get another run out of that casting". But you're an easy going guy.

    looks like this one is the same toy, with different art.

    No, I don't pay royalties, because my car doesn't look like that, at all

    Hot Wheels released a model of Steve Magnante's 63 Chevy II some years back

    id be interested to see what it runs without the blower,
    the car seems to be setup fairly well... im guessing at least a
    low 12/high 11 with the single if you get it all worked out
    a net a clean pass from start to finish.

    i mean, it IS a 427 in a lil old chevy II............

    I've run 2.50 gears in car, it likes 3.0 better. So it's pretty much perfect right now. Also I've run 3.70 and 4.11 gears, and 3.89 is optimum for racing.
