Guy in a late Charger R/T with a loud exhaust along side me on a six lane main road, I'm in a Chall R/T with a super quiet exhaust ...light changes and he takes off and I just let him go... next light change I took off after about a 10 mph roll and blew him into the weeds Actually felt kinda dumb after it all ended...street racing at my age!!

I remember refusing to put Sunoco 260 in my cars because it was an outrageous 45 cents per gallon.
It cost well over $5.00 for a fill up. shock


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

That was cheap. I put 260 in Dad's car for him once, $7.00, that extra two dollars set him off. I had a chance at a very clean 4 spd '70 Hemi 'cuda, ask was $1,900.00. He was selling because they couldn't keep the engine together, I don't know why, never asked. And I didn't have a spare $1,900, could probably have come up with the 90 part, mebbe the 190 part... laugh2

I did discover they wouldn't loan 20 year olds $1,900 for a car and insurance would NOT write for a 20 year old with a hemi 'cuda so gave up even thinking about it. I'm pretty sure that car went to Alaska. Red hardtop, G60 scat pack tires, dog dishes.

Take a 700hp car drag racing on stock rubber and see how it goes - they roll these modern insane HP cars for a reason

Yeah, when the 1800 hp Viper loses traction and goes sideways on a highway roll you know he'll have trouble from a dig on street tires.

I usually read and agree with a lot of things you post, but I won't with this comment. Big drag racing fan here. Has the insight to see what makes old iron and new stuff work.

The science behind this type of racing has come a long way. My friend has a nice 1000whp caddy, that over the last, say, 5 years has had a great evolution. He did a lingenfelter top end kit and on street tires ran 10.89s. Not D.O.T.s, his street continental's. He caught the bug. His car gained many upgrades quickly and his skills as a driver also greatly improved. Just for arguments sake also, dont for a second think what is programmed to control traction and stability in a stock vehicle is even remotely useful in a modern ride with over 700 whp, it will still overpower the car, and untrained driver.

Roll racing may be different from a "dig" but I like it just as much. The violent explosions just happen differently.

x2

Don't keep us in suspense: what name do you have for guys that do that?

Not everybody has time to go home, put their slicks on, go back, find the other guy, do a big burnout, and have someone out there on the road to drop the hands. rolleyes Door to door at 40mph, and three honks gets the job done pretty darn good.

Queers. That is the word that has been mentioned on the vaulted YellowBullet.
Me? A race is a race whether you're already rolling or at a dead stop.

First off I love these cars and they can be made to hook and hook well on radials. I would love to have one and have the coin to buy one but I drive my moms old six cylinder Chevy Malibu for a reason. Been there done that years ago street racing and even being 65 years old soon have the need for speed so I purposefully stay away from driving anything fast on the streets. I know myself well and if I had that power I would use that power. I would take a beautiful daily driver and modify it to hook as we never roll raced. So have fun, be careful, and please try not to kill anyone using all that power.
