Flashlight drags
#1
Well, I did it! I drove in the Flashlight Drgas Saturday night, and it was a blast. The car handled well (even though I got beat!) but I was just there to have fun (this time).

One thing that kinda bugged me was the number of late model sedans and "tuners" that were there competing. I really wanted to run against another muscle car, but ended up against a late model Jaguar! No contest! I guess I will have to find a friend with a car similar to mine to run against next time.

I hope to get copies of the pics he took of us on the line, etc.

I agree no contest(in style) your car is heaps cooler than any jag. Glad you had a blast

I think it is time to spend some money if you want to compete. If all else fails you can change gearing to win the 60 ft part of the race. These cars are not very fast in stock form but they look really fast at a red light. Mine sounds like a Nascar but lacks some of the ooooomph. My 11 year old was not impressed when we got smoked by a Honda Tuner car.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

+1 to what Carter said. Success no matter how you look at it.

Thanks, guys! Like my late bf used to say "the best 10 seconds of freedom you'll ever feel".

Definitely needs some upgrades. First on the list if a good performance carb. Canfield is coming up weekend after next so I will be shopping.

Next meet is Aug. 16th. There is a muscle car blow-out drag show, then flashlight drags after that.

Based on the "2.75 to 1" bit found in your signature, I have a feeling I know where you'll be starting. Wink Big Grin
