mr.losi
i have a 2003 cameron 4-link dragster. just picked up the motor saturday. going racing on the 17th for the first time out this season. ran 7.70s last year. should dip into the 60s this year. But its all about consitancy. It has a 556 big block chevy 930hp on dyno. We will add a second carb soon. that should make it really crazy. I should put it in my tc3 so i could be brad

Whats left on your chevelle to do?

Now, isn't that a bit like gold plating a piece of you-know-what?

I own a new Cavalier myself... but I'm not going to spend my time and money trying to make it something it will never be... fast!

how fast have you had yours up to? iv had mine to 110 befor i had to slow down for corner. I still took the corner at over 60. can you say a little bit of tire chirp. i already hav high performance tires on it that i got at a discount through my uncle. and did i mention that its a comleatly stock 96. Not the Z24 version.

Mr. losi
What are you looking for. I got roller lifters, valve covers. water pump- oil pan intake carbs. There is some stuff laying around.
Are you building the motor or having it done by somebody?

You guys need to get rid of those weed eaters and get some real horsepower

Chad....AJ's in De Kalb is the only place to race outside sedan electric or nitro in my book. I have yet to see a track that is better around here or with in a 2 to 3 hour drive. Im sure that we will be out there once or twice....that track is too sweet not to race on.
