Gotta love them V-gate shifters. I'd install mine if I could find a set of decently priced factory buckets. Man, that gets your heart going just watching it, especially if you've felt it personally before:devil:

by pedal you mean keep in it? because it might be like a drug at that point. everyone i talk to says to leave more like 6000, or a few hundred rpm above max torque.

so did anyone ever establish how quick that car is?

Nice video. I especially like how the Chevy in front of him pulled the front end in first, and then second gear.

I'd leave at 6000-6500, against the chip. If the front end climbs too high, keep your foot in it, and pull second gear!

I could watch those videos all day long.

Not to hijack but did you watch the video below it titled Biggest Sickest Wheelstand? WOW That was a driving job. It was almost as good as Danny Blacks wheelstand.

Do NOT pedal a "slower" motor car because it will slam down hard!

Exactly...Easier said then done, but I've done it a few times and luckily my first reaction was to shift and not lift:D

Shifting a stick is a hole differant animal than a Automatic!

No automatic will leave like a stick!

it will definitely be difficult to pull the next gear if the front end is in the air. but somehow i think i'll be able to. there's sure to be a post on it as soon as i'm back from the track the first time out

When you heading to the track Aron? I'm installing my 8.5" 10 bolt this weekend along with Caltracs & split mono's. I hope to hit Irwindale before Fontana on the 2nd.
