Hey Troy, just a thought, if you extend the "cowl scoop" higher flush to the windshield it might help take away some windshield frontal area (like Hooley's stude).

Another reason we removed it was because it was a little difficult to see around it.  Not sure at this time if we will cover the intake, we will take a closer look when we get the hole patched up.

We have been using a computer program to calculate our potential top speeds at Bonneville.  I will post more data sheets in the technical section after I post here.  The best example we have is with the Summers Brothers streamliner.  We input all of their perameters such as HP, gear ratio, CD, frontal area ect... and the end speed was very accurate.  The time and acceleration innervals are not accurate, because our car accelerates about 20mph every mile from the 2 mile on.  On our car we do not know for sure what HP and CD that our car has, so this program helps predict what we think this car is capable of.  In the near future we will have the car on a 2500hp chasis dyno. 

First is Summers Bros.  Two pictures were taken for all sheets so you could see the numbers more clearly.





I will use the lowest and the highest HP rating here with the CD at .250 for the low HP and .300 for the high HP.  The first picture is as marked on the page 1635hp.






This sheet has a HP rating of 2005 with a CD of .300

Our plans for the car this year is to dyno it first to get a good tune on it and then run it a speed week.  If all goes well and we have no problems and the lake bed is decent, then maybe Oct. and Nov. grin

Still trying to get a better tune on the engine before the costly trip to the dyno.  We may need to do some work on our barrel valve to make it run better.  I took a video from my helmet cam of our start up it is about 4 minutes long.  On start up this engine and idle this engine continues to foul plugs.  We will eventually figure it out. grin

All we need is the smell of NITRO to go with the sound. Great stuff and the hard work shows. See you in August. grin

I love the smell of race cars in the morning, but we only run gas.  Although we may at one point enter in the fuel class running on gas. shocked  Here is a second video after we leaned out our nossles and the barrel valve.  Hard to hear much difference but there is less black smoke comming out of the zoomies.

That's a huge compliment and thanks. grin  We would love to have their sound and 3/4 of their HP.  Looks like we will be taking the car to a friends airport to test it before we take it to a dyno.  Hate to spend so much money if it won't take a load. tongue

Glen,
As you can know I am an engineer and spelling was never my strong suit!! Thanks for the correction though! Lindsley and Leggitt it is and they are still the best sounding car a B'ville!! and 338 at the 3 mile is certainly Dodge impressive too! Can't wait to see the bvillerer's car come August.
