Guys, THIS is what hot-rodding was meant to be.

Anybody can order rods and cams from Summit and make decent horsepower with a SBC.

What YOU'RE doing is taking the ART of hot-rodding and pushing the boundary to a level that few of us will ever have the talent to do.

This is just stunning.

Thanks for letting us come along for the ride.

Chris, your words are way too kind, but thank you!

In reality, we're not doing anything different than you, and most of the guys on the board. We're all trying to do something that hasn't been done before-set the highest record possible. The help, and innovations posted on this board are always amazing!

Good luck on the dyno! cheers

If any builder (Shelby?) has put this much research into an engine design and build, it has never been documented.

Several of these sites are absolutely mind blowing. Include the Midget, Rob Frey and Bo.........

CONGRATULATIONS fellows.

Your right Chris canybody can make decent horsepower out of a SBC ( I did it with my drag cars ) but from what im seeing these days it takes a helluva SBC to set any kind of record on the salt and those that have those engines, arent ordering stuff from Summit and Jegs  grin

Excellent work Buddy. As I told Sparky last week, my head spins when I look at the numbers crunched on some of these builds

Not enough can be said about Buddy's desire to make this project go and to share the results with all who are interested. The Flat Cad is truly a shared expierence for all of us who wish to share it with him and the crew. I for one really enjoy the updates and look forward to hearing the next installment on the Dyno and on the course at full song. Looking forward to tipping a Hop Rod Ale with you guys soon................Carl  cheers cheers cheers

What? No "Buddy Cut" version of the T!?!?!?!

 You know, the one with the sleeves cut off and the neck cut out? grin Would that cost more or less due to less fabric used? cheers
