Hey guys new to the forums, just got a 67 barracuda notch back last week!

planning on running a 408 stroker from blue print engines, with 727 trans and Dana 60 rear end with truetrac.

tires will be BF 275 60r15 or 295 50r15 (haven’t decided) if any one has photos that would help me out.

do more street driving than I will be racing, and like to cruise on the highway around 80 haha. Was thinking 355 gears, what rpm would that put me at 80, and would that still give me a ton of off the...

Finally got to make passes with the new engine/combo from @IQ52

11.02 at 123mph on street tires, pump gas, full trim, full exhaust.

I really need a new convertor and I think that alone will put it in the 10's.

Shifting at 6,100 despite it making peak hp at 5900. It liked it so..

NOt geared right either anymore I'm trapping in overdrive, traping at 5300.

727 slip on yoke tail shaft section

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 727 slip on yoke tail shaft section
Hello and good day. I'm looking to find a car tail shaft for my 76 RV 727 transmission with output shaft, governor. Basically what's needed to convert the flange to a slip on yoke.

I'd love to pickup a long tail but would take a shorty as well. Or if what I've been reading is right a 95 back a518 46RH/RE overdrive unit will bolt up to with a kit from patc to make it work? But I think those are hard to come by. Open to input on it though.

Photo is of what I have.

Thank you for your time...

Doing a 64 Polara 2dr hardtop for my wife. Her favorite color is purple. I was thinking Plum crazy FC7 for 90% of the car. Hood with hemi scoop will be hot rod flat black. Also considering a black vinyl top ? Interior also black.
Car will be garaged and only driven on sunny days.

Can a Clutch Car be Competitive in Bracket?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Can a Clutch Car be Competitive in Bracket?
I just jumped back into bracket racing after a 20 year layoff.

I managed to get myself thoroughly hooked again, but my equipment all needs updating.

I run a 73 charger with a 413 and 4 speed.

I am trying to get a plan together for the car for next year. As much as I love racing, I REALLY love winning.

I would like to stick with the 4-speed for several reasons.

Is it possible to win on a regular basis with a clutch car?
