« on: July 07, 2021, 04:12:08 AM »
I am running a 383 SBC with a 8-71 in a FED and and rebuilding the power glide. Should I upgrade to a 8 clutch pack or will a new 6 and band be fine? I don't think I make any serious hp the car runs in the 8.5 area but I did smoke the clutches in there now.

I have seen allot of people that don't run one with no radiator. I would think you would want one for the expansion but have seen do many without so I wasn't sure.

Events / Nostalgia drag race
« on: March 07, 2019, 09:30:09 AM »
We are having a nostalgia drag race on July  6-7 in Kearney Nebraska. This is our first year so we are keeping it simple,  there will be a nostalgia eleminator class that will consist of front engine, center steer, dragsters, funny cars and altered's. We will be running a .4 pro tree and index starting at 7.5 increasing at. 5 to fit the group of cars that show up. No electronics or automatic shifters but trans brakes will be permitted. There will be cash payouts for both days. There will also be a hot rod class pre 1972 no electronics or automatic shifters using a sportsman tree. Come on out and enjoy a great weekend

I was throwing the index's out there for reference and that's what i was wanting to find out what range to run it, or do a dial in, or I have seen a one shot dial in. I'm defanitly not wanting to limit cars and am looking for an average poll of what people would want to see to attend. I know 6 months isn't verry far away, I'm working on getting everything set now.

Front Engine Dragsters / nostalgia eleminator type event
« on: December 18, 2018, 12:32:20 PM »
We are having a nostalgia race at our local track this year and im trying to organize a nostalgia eliminator class, front engine, center steer. No electronics. There are only a couple cars on our local area and am trying to draw some cars from the surrounding states. This will be a 2 day event and im raising up some decent prize money and am wondering what the best format would be to run. Would race both days and payout both days, or do qualifying or a test and tune first day and eliminations the next? Any input on what people like at other events would be great.
