This stupid car just keeps getting faster. Ran a 6.90 at 101.58...which is the equivalent of a 10.87. Many thanks to 278CIKILLER for all the wrenching, JB Racing Engines and to Scoob for the tuning.

Good car number too!
I've ran that car number for years. There's a sweet old lady at the timeslip booth...and when I walk up she looks on the wall and says "where's my devil car!".

Way to go! I was at London, place was packed with over 175 mod cars. We only got 2 runs in and around 7 the dew rolled in and we rolled out. Had a career best too but not that good:wink: I wanted to try 3 more things and we ran out of time. :crazy:

I've been a Scooby Doo fan my whole life...and have him strapped in the car for every run. What's really cool is the dads with their kids wandering around the pits and the kids pointing to the car when they see Scoob. The dad will bring them over and if they have a camera then I'll sit them in the drivers seat and get a pic. If just one of these kids gets involved in drag racing...then I've done a good thing. At the end of the day...it's all about the fun.

Once again guys...thanks so much. I've been beating on this engine most weekends for 3 years and it's time for a freshening. We had an overboost condition last year that twisted the DS head horribly. I'm worried about the rod bearings after taking that hard a hit...and feel it's best to freshen it up before I really hurt it. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.
