    Big Red Stock Bottom End King World Record Pass

    I loaded up Big Red onto the trailer and went to Great Lakes Dragaway yesterday with my buddy in the quest for 10s. Lots of variables today but we figured them all out and the magic happened. First, on the new dyno tune when I was making test hits on the street little did I know that not only...

    Big Red full effort tune

    Big Red has been officially "turned up". I hit the dyno on Thursday and everything went smoothly with no catastrophes. :laugh: The first thing we did is try to, as best as we could figure out a baseline on the car to see how much power it actually did make last year when it was in low 11 second...

    While the converter is out getting tweaked, my surgeon said, "we really need to re-do your exhaust". Every time my car has came off of his lift, the car has gotten faster, so I obliged. Fun fact, I just found out a week ago that not only is my exhaust crush-bent garbage(knew this already)...

    Big Red's heart on reserve

    I did the deed. I just pulled the trigger on a built bottom end teksid out of Mississippi. Eagle H-beams and Manley flattops. So time to flog this one into submission. I'm putting it on 12psi soon and will probably feed it 21°. Don't really care now...but honestly never did. :laugh: Im gonna...

    Class aye?!

    I've reached that fork in the road and might have possibly found my niche. I passed all 3 exams the other day for my commercial driver's license with no re-takes! I have my permit now and can road test by the 2nd week of March. To add further to my excitement my employer is paying for my...

    Turbo Coyote Lincoln

    The car finally got some attention on 1320. Here's Bobby Underwood's turbo coyote beast. Built coyote, 88mm, th400. I saw an 1/8 mile slip about a month ago trapping almost 140. Stay tuned as he will be giving it hell this weekend at an event down in TX. He wants 7.90s Fyi, in the video he had...

    WTB: Fuel Rails

    Looking for aftermarkets for 96-98 cobra setups. O-ring style preferred but not a deal breaker I suppose.

    Bobby Underwood's 158mph street car

    I hope this is the right spot for this post. I couldn't resist the urge to share. Everybody buckle up. This is one of the coolest things that you might have seen in a long time. Attention was brought to this car on the Mark VIII Community Facebook page a couple years ago when there was word...

    Rear cooling mod/Oil pump gears

    Are these things worth thinking about for this year? Will my meth injection and E85 diminish the heat issues in the heads or is this something that I need to worry about, and if so, under what conditions? Regarding oil pump gears....I'm playing with fire this year already and I would rather...

I am still...

    I'm looking to pull the trigger on some draglites for Big Red but I am having a bit of trouble understanding the sizing. Any input from you guys that have done this is greatly appreciated. First off, I am swapping over to Mustang hubs so no worries there. I am looking to run 15x9s out back and...

    Free ET

    Just randomly decided to get this out of the way for the most part tonight. I am being drawn towards aluminum Kirkey seats with the possibility of adapting Thunderbird manual tracks. This should be good for approximately 200#.

    Time for E85

    Well, I've decided I am going to pull the trigger on this and start gathering parts together to put Big Red on E85. I have a multi-bank SCT chip so my idea is to have it tuned for regular pump gas and a separate tune for E85. Quite frankly, I need to be spoon fed and I don't even know if this...

    Drag strip renovations

    Rock Falls Raceway where I go has some exciting changes for the 2016 season. Check this out. Kind of makes me excited for next spring seeing as this track has been declining for quite some time now. The track has started "lifting", but no more. Now we makes it better. :cool...
