Just saying hello
« on: February 11, 2020, 02:13:40 PM »
Hi guys, I am new to the site. I found out about it through Fuel injection Ent. I have a 1958 Chevy apache 3100 step side truck. 572 Aluminum Keith black chevy, 90's pro stock tunnel ram, twin 1050 dominators, mallory super mag 3, 15:1 compression, brodix bb2 plus heads flowed and ported by EPD. Hughes custom built turbo 400, Alston cage, and back half, profab 9 inch rear end, 5:14 richmond gears and strange axles. I am hoping to run B or C gas depending on how fast the truck really is. It's been a 23 year project that I am hoping will be done by the first of april.

Welcome to this quiet forum, truck sounds nice let's see some pictures?
I'm fast. I can make five mistakes while others think.

Hi Fireball. Your ride sounds quick. I am hoping to run low 8's, but we'll have to see. It's 4300 feet here in Reno and in Fallon, so low 9's is what I am stooting for here. But, at sea level I am hoping for low 8's. I 'll try to get you some photo's..

Greg, I look forward to it. I am so excited to finally get the truck to the track. Do you run and Sacramento and Bakersfield? I am hoping to run at both this year.

I will test @ Sac once in a while, like this saturday.  There are about 5 of us going out.

I race Famoso about 6 times a year.  Samoa, Sonoma, Fallon, and Redding are the other main stays.

Yea, I am hoping to run Sac, Redding, Sonoma, Boise, Vegas, and Bakersfield. There is a cool out law track in Idaho falls I want to run at some point. Memphis Street outlaws were up there last year.  I look forward to meeting you at the track. I am hoping to have the truck at the April test and tune at Fallon.
