LOL I'm a big dummy. Yes I have noticed that DA can strip tenths away in seconds. I'm putting a new built spec converter in Friday night. They say 5-7% slip only. We will see.

Re: post latest 1/4 and 1/8 mile times and 60ft.

Thanks guys. I'm glad its coming around. Now I have a good base. I can start power tuning on timing and jets now. Maybe I can get a tenth or so more out of it. Sure would be nice to get a 11.49 out of it before the tracks close.

It would give me some thing to do over winter. Body work and a Roll bar set up. Maybe a bar set up that's legal to get my license W/ help from a Speed tech N20 system.

Re: post latest 1/4 and 1/8 mile times and 60ft.

I would be surprised if you got it that light but I would say 9's if you get it to 3000lbs.

Re: post latest 1/4 and 1/8 mile times and 60ft.

I agree with dj, i would think 3000lbs in a blazer would be very hard to accomplish, it's hard enough to get a truck that light.... i would say in the 9's at 3000 also..

Re: post latest 1/4 and 1/8 mile times and 60ft.

my blazer is 104 wheel base, and the info i found online about these rigs even with 4x4 and leafs plus 205 tcase and full interior with v8 was said 2 be 3600 lbs. If this is correct i have shed quite a bit of weight and should be very light for full metal body. thanks 4 your guys input.
