    Thats awesome, there are so many badass cars at that event, it is just insane. Its like the coolest collection of cars you have seen at one track, all at the same time, for 5 days in a row. It is so crazy to me what people will do, myself included, to compete in an event where the only prize is a jacket. It should be interesting what happens with registration on the even in the coming years. This year they sold 260 spots in 8 minutes and an extra 91 got in because the site selling the tickets couldnt keep up with the volume of people.

    In other news, i got my new clutch and transmission in, along with the transmission girdle, and had a friend come over and work the pedal while i checked the air gap under the car and everything was good. We also put the new hood on, it feels good to finally be making progress on this thing.

    I actually bought this clutch and flywheel before dragweek but i knew with how involved setting up the clutch was going to be, and the learning curve of adjusting it, i decided to put the clutch from my old 345" motor in it and pray that it held up, which it did, barely... This happened 3 passes after i got home from dragweek, when i was really trying to get after it on the launch. The datalog showed a 7000 rpm launch.

    Love this car.
    I saw he posted on corral saying he was ditching the LS setup now for a coyote/manual setup.

    Yea he wants to slow the car down a little and get better MPG, basically more of a cruiser than what it is now, he is also getting tired of the NHRA donations. The whole motor intake to pan to vac pump to headers is on sale for $9500, which is a steal.

    After having spent the money to build my milder, smaller cubed version I can attest to him pretty much giving it away at that price

    That's Corral for ya. You could give something away for free and someone would ask to send $50 with it. Well, any classified really. I hate selling (but I love buying!)

    @hoopty5.0 Agreed, i think it is on LS1tech. Problem is the motor isnt a dyno queen its a workhorse and people dont a 700 hp motor that runs 9.20s as much as a 1000 hp motor that goes 8.90's
