Dudek knows what he’s doing! That officially puts the Hemicuda as second fastest car ever in FAST behind only the 69 L88! You know he’s gunning hard for the 9.77!!!

144 mph has to be getting hairy on stock brakes and tires! Do they allow an upgrade for brake safety or does the car have to run the original brakes? At 150 mph NHRA will require a parachute which won't look stock......

Is it a requirement in that class to have a bar at 11.50 or quicker?

While FAST does not enforce any safety rules, the tracks we run at do, We are not big enough and we encourage our racers to follow safety guidelines.

Is this Cuda a replacement for the Road Runner, or is it a car Dave built an engine for, or something else? I know the Road Runner was sold, but I'm out of the loop on the rest of it.

No doubt the mineshaft air helped to make the mph, but the cool track doesn't do a lot for traction. It's always a balancing act on skinnies.

I looked the car over today and liked how the X bars got around the door panels and if I remember right, column shift. Would fit right in the show car field. The black 63 Ply max wedge sitting next to it was no slouch either.
