I missed if you had posi or not. What gear do you have? Its still impressive time!
What kind of Nova? I had a 66, mild 355 engine, 350 turbo, 3.08 gear. It would run 13.80's/100MPH all day long. I wish I had that one back.

My nova is a 73, I built it while I lived in NY with my dad and my auto hobby shop class before I joined military. she has a 454 out a junk yard suburban, we turned the motor into a roller with a .272 cam, quadra jet 950 CFM edlebrock on top, american racing headers, 4 " pipes right out the side behind the doors, hurst 6 speed indy shifter with right side reverse lockout moving a 700 turbo trans, and 410's out back. she will scoot right on down the road. I dont know what gears I have in the ram I will have to look and get back to you tonight, I am pretty sure all of these trucks have a form of posi right?

it's amazing how time and technology have improved motors over time..back then the 13.80 Nova was considered quick... Today i would have to hit the brakes at the end to run that slow on my qc ram...

15 flat with all that weight is impressive... I like to run with the least amount of weight, no tailgate, no spare and drop the tire pressure til it hooks... no worries now that I run either dr's or slicks when I race now...

OldHP, I crawled under there and I looked at the tag and this particular ram has 3.55's in the back.
Chefred, does lowering the tire pressure effect how it handles at speed on the strip ? and can you really launch it without the weight by lowering the tire pressure?

Chefred, what all have you done to your ram to get it to run in the 13's or better ?

slicks and dr's are very soft rubber...by lessening the tire pressure of stock rubber, it softens the tires makin it more pliable on the track..when i was runnin streets, i'd drop my pressure to around 23-25 lbs... i don't stall when I run, i slowly get into it and floor it about 30 ft out.. it takes lotsa practice not to spin outta the hole, especially when you take all the weight off..

I run high 12's on motor...


and low 12's sprayin..

chefred112, When I ran it at strip, I wouldn't open the hood. I saw some guy laying on ground telling his buddy, "It don't even have headers!". It was a sleeper, stock interior with "column powerglide shifter".....shifting a mildly built turbo 350.

Tubbs1, 3.55's even more impressive. Have you ever watched the National Musclecar drags? These guys are launching on stock bias-ply F70x14 tires, running 10's. These guys are ingenious, 600HP is the norm, maybe more now, the coolest one I've seen is a 1969 Black RoadRunner that looks like you drove it off showroom floor.
