Right on thanks,  I suppose a good initial goal would be 5.0 in the 8th,  the first and only time out with this setup it went 5.50 right out of the trailer, with a 53 top pulley. So I now have a 50 on and a 48 and a 45 ready, I can't go any bigger then the 55 I have on the bottom, so would have to change out of the 8mm set up to get anything smaller up top..

Nice looking truck. I am thinking 5.0 should be east with your setup.  Welcome to site. Have fun because this stuff cost too much not to enjoy it.

Right on, thanks, I've been a pretty hard core racer for 30 years, going to Funny car Chaos tomorrow to get my 7.50 chassis certification tomorrow and enjoy some funny car racing and of course some FED too.
