Here is another one. It's the commercial from our track. I am right at the beginning at right at the end. Badgto is in it, my Dad's car is in it and you can see Adam Woodmancy in the other lane with me.

You may have seen these before but the "sticky" is a great idea

408 Pontiac Jetsprint boat in the International Group A class (412 CID limit)

We are restricted to iron heads / block / valve limits (2.125"/1.770"), 1-11/16" trottle bore carb etc etc.

We run Jim Robertson #48's wacked about 070 with relocated pushrods, offset intake rockers and a whole bunch of his tricks and about 6 months worth of grinding LOL

Engine runs at 5800-6400 during a run for 50-60 seconds depending on the the track

We havnt won a race yet but have been on the podium against the Chevies with there 330cfm Iron Eagle this and Pro Action that heads while we run something made in the 60's / 70's

One is a night time meeting and then a couple if in boat from other meetings




Working on going faster (and now staying dry at the same time !!)

Here's one from last weekend. Not a great pass, hit the rev limiter. Still getting used to how fast that one two shift has been coming up!, but was running low 9.20's for the most part.

Hey Jeff, I raised the compression to 14.1 and advanced the cam 4 degrees. Steve did some additional grinding and freshening on the heads. I think that advancing the cam woke up the bottom end more than anything else we did and it didn't sacrifice any top end. Other than replacing all 4 tires this spring, the chassis is the same. The slicks are hooking much harder than before. I think the additional torque is making the suspension work better with the additional shock to the tires. When are you getting out?
