I do have a new air shifter and some LED dial boards to go in the truck, but tough to get motivated when there is snow on the ground LOL.

My racing season starts end of May, so next month I'll be putting the truck up on stands, pulling and tweaking the convertor and start puttering away at the other stuff. Would be nice to have a longer race season, but would also be harder on the wallet

Thanks, no such thing as out classed around here, we are all just at different stages is all.

Right on man, I was just asking my friend who is also my machinist, "where does it end?" I'm going to have run 110 octane race gas in this new motor so I decided a fuel cell and electric fuel pump is in order. Might as well go with an electric water pump too...Means an electric fan...I have no idea how much vacuum that cams going to make but I'm thinking an isolated vacuum pump may be in order to maintain the power brakes. I'm installing a set of Moog front springs (got the part numbers from here a couple years ago) but had to cut a coil and a half off to even get them in. Don't have the number right now but I think they're going to work to unload the front and hold it for a decent weight transfer. lol...Sorry didn't mean to highjack your thread man...

Re: The 71Dragtruck thread

No problem at all, post away.

You should start a thread with your truck, post up what you’ve all done and then add as you go.
