Brotherhood of Street Racers Post Board Re: Back to the topic Posted by slowjavelin on 6/27/2006, 11:34 pm, in reply to "Re: Back to the topic" I am one of those trusting kind of guys. Everybody knows my car will run 9.60's on a good day. What are you comfortable offering. I don't lie , cheat or steal, I just want a fair race. If we race and you embarass me, it will be the last time we race. I want both of us to have to earn the win. I have no clue how fast your car is, so you need to make the offer. I do consider a 10.5W x 33 or 10.5W x 31 a "Big Tire" when its on a big rim and the car is Tubbed. I was told that is what kind of tire you run. I have a 13.50 x 30.0 ET Streets on a 10.0 rim, so you are way ahead of me in tire alone, not to mention a motor that is somewhere between 396 and 800 cubic inches. Mine is a little 406 with 25 year old Brodix Nascar heads.

My car is NOT mini tbbed. It has 30 year old leaf springs with Cal Tracs bars and Rancho shocks. You have a back halved car with a ladder bar or 4 link and a big inch Rat Motor in a lighter car. I don't see how head up is fair no matter what. If alcohol is a power added than somebody needs to make a 26 horsepower nitrous unit and see if anyone buys it, because that is all the alcohol gave me over a single carb on Gasoline. It would be a waste of time for me to race a car like yours, you have me beat from start to finish.
How about this. I will run 20% nitro and race you head up, with you on the motor. Nitro IS a power adder thats worth more than 26 friggin HP.
