    I wish!!!! Another question - Can you run radials in the front and bias ply Slicks in the back without it getting squirrelly???? I'm looking at $310 for the PowerTrax unit, $100 for the traction bars, and $320 for the tires, and I'll try to scrounge up some wheels. Unless something better comes up. I'm going to call up a few of my friends who dirt track race and they might know where I can find a 9"

    This was the first time at the track also. I have been working on it for 3 1/2 years. My computer programs gave me high hopes they said high 12's at 103-105 based on my current combination and poor traction, but those computer programs must be bogus.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Here's what I have:

    .040 over 350
    Flat tops w/ dual eybrows -7cc
    zero decked
    Dart Iron Eagle heads 64cc chambers 215cc runners 2.08/1.60 valves
    Comp Cams Extreme Energy 272 cam
    .487/.490lift 230/236 duration @.050 274/286 advertized duration
    Summit full roller rocker 1.5:1
    RPM air gap type intake
    4011 Holley 750CFM vacuum secondary carb
    HEI rebuilt
    Hooker full length headers

    This should be good for 10.5:1 compression and 400-430hp

    I also am running a B&M Holeshot 3000 converter

    Yeah, I'd say that combo's worth that much. But, something aint right. Its just not traction. Your mph would be up another 15-20 in my opinion
