I took my car to the track once after rebuilding the 302 engine and got 15.2 seconds in the quarter mile. At this time the car had a 8" differential with 2.75 gears and conventional differential. So only one tire was spinning, i.e., when I hit second and third gear the speedometer was jumping as if I were driving on ice (I had to let off of the acceleration because of no traction). I burned a bunch of rubber -- found around the wheel well and wheel opening.

I then replaced with a 9" rearend and 3.50 gears and differential so both wheels would spin. It really did improve takeoff! but didn't make it another quarter mile run before I wrecked it on ice. One of these days I will put it back together and post a better quarter mile time!
