We had some traction issues in Phoenix for the Pontiac event in April, peddling it a few times, and tagged 10K RPMs on consecutive runs (track was less than ideal).

We went to Famoso for the 1st Saturday Night Nitro event of 2014 and tried to push our 6.35 ET a bit. Left the weight on the clutch and blew off the tires (the track was really well prepped). Anyway, here's what 10K RPMs looks like

Track photographer Bob Brown caught the car just as it went into wheel spin and put out a cylinder:

It's sounds good. Hope to see that monster hook up soon!

Wow.

I LOVE these Pontiac Powered high-powered cars. This, the Butler car, the flat black 69 GTO that was at Norwalk last year (i think formerly the "Dirty Bird" that Mr. P-Body had a hand in?)

I only wish we could get them all at Norwalk together.

Man! That's some serious business right there! Being that fast with a Pontiac is an awesome accomplishment!

Yup, Vinnie is rewriting the "stock block" and "400" books. Obviously, they can "take" a WHOLE LOT more than conventional wisdom. IIRC, you went 6.90s @ 200 with a nodular crank? Keep makin' that elephant herd nervous, Vin!

The blackish '69 is Steve Dale's "Goateus Maximus", current ET "record" of 6.11. I heard (but have not verified), Jeff Kauffman, at Norwalk this past weekend, managed a 6.15 @ 241! The ET is still a little "short", but that's 12 MPH faster than GM or the Butler car have gone. Didn't hear any reports on Eric Larson's nitro funny.

Yep, nodular crank and a Pro 7.0 alcohol tune. I wouldn't advise that, but we wanted to see how far we could push the outside of the envelope with careful machining and balancing.

From the Norwalk reports, Jeff Kauffman ran a 6.17/241 and 6.15/238-ish?those symmetrical heads are making some big horsepower. Several people said the track was not quite there. IIRC, Eric ran a 6.39 in the Boss Bird. From the sound of it, if the track was better, both would have recorded better ETs.
