It's a start. My plan is to blow the D/Pro record out of the water rolleyes. Goal is to have this car done for 2013 speed week and maybe some dry lakes stuff too. So if your thinking of building a D/PRO car you had better change your plans

Heck, the record's 14 years old by Doll-Fox and Christophersen -- and they don't even race any more.  Got to be real soft.

Ya those darn 225mph soft records  grin

Though the 180 one at El Mirage might seem soft too  rolleyes

Good luck and have fun, this seems to be a great place to get help.

Well, after Jack Rogers puts that record into the 50s this summer Team Hubris might have to rethink their program. Its the same with all long term builds, the bar goes higher and higher.

Well you can talk the talk. Guess we will see in 2013 about walk the walk. I like your confidence, but those nasty little salt gremlins feast on cocky. evil
good luck.

I did the roll eyes thing. It's just a joke. I'm pretty humble and understand what I'm up against.

D/Pro = 225.366 ... that is stout.    Good luck blowing that one "out of the water".

And all of the responses were done in jest, except, perhaps, the one from that Back guy who is cranky by nature.  cheers

Not to many cubes NA running in thin air, with a box stock body. Like 55 says that is pretty stout record.

I would think you would need a killer small block to blow that record out of the water, Good Luck Jardine
