    Larry,
    I have not had it on the track yet, but when building it, referenced many magazine articles, and websites, as well as simulator software. Your ET is about what I would expect from mine,..give or take a few tenths.

    I did the website to help other guys see what mods they may be interested in doing themselves, and it has also saved me from having to retype the same answers to the same questions over and over again.

    Thanks for the compliment,

    Mark

    Some mods to driveline, but mainly to conserve weight; the added durability is a plus:

    1. 3" aluminum driveshaft.
    2. 3 1/2" carbon fiber halfshafts.
    3. Upgrade to 1330 U-joints.
    4. Composite rear spring.
    5. QA-1 adjustable rear shocks (need the added stiffness).
    6. 4.11 gears in stock rear end.

    Hi Larry,
    I guess I never checked my messages. Sorry. Yes the car is a lot of fun with this motor in it. I haven't taken it to the strip and probably won't. I raced profesionally for years and I am still involved in some land speed and drag racing. I get too serious if I start racing so the Vette is just a toy. It is very hard on tires I can tell you that. They don't stand much chance against this motor.
    Cheer back to you!
    Mike

    Hi, I started a group for us Missourians...feel free to join, and post up any upcoming events or just check it from time to time to see if any events are happening in our area. I'm sure their won't be any till the spring, but nonetheless, we'll all be grouped together, more-so than the regional/great lakes section.
