The fellow on the left was fast. Almost like an explosion when he passed by. Skeered me! But then again, fast is relative drive

Are we supposed to respond to this Lazarus thread?

Ok, I'll do it.
31 Plymouth coupe, street/strip, completed 2 Drag Weeks, mostly stock except for a stroked early Hemi, 8 Holley 94 carbs, t56 magnum, McLeod RTX clutch, Clutch Tamer, quicktime bell, 4.57 Moser 9" , 4 link, coil overs, 8.50 cage, 2750# at the starting line. Haven't broke anything, gone 10.teens at 137. Still needs a lot of sorting, I expect 9's from it.

68 Road Runner.

Old 499ci combo with a Jerico DR4, ran 9.72 @ 138mph.

New combo, with 563ci made 140 more HP, and I switched to a Clutchless Liberty 4 speed. Should run bottom 9's, high 8's on a good day.

Mine isn’t as fast as what you’re looking for, but I’ll bite. Mine went 12.57 @ 113 last weekend, with a soft 1.79 60 ft and sloooow shifts. It took 9 passes, but thats the first complete pass the car has run. From here I can try to launch it harder and shift it faster.

Do you guys find shifting slow affects trap speed or et more?

Combo is stock stroke 440, Racer Brown ST-21 (254 @ .050, 520 lift), 107 LSA, RPM intake with an 850 DP, Stealth heads, 18 spline with a Ram Powergrip HD, and 4.10 8 3/4 (reason for babying the launch and shifts).

The last 3 passes the clutch seemed to slip in first, I pedaled it some and it locked up and held for the rest of the run. But I was actually thinking about throwing a 727 in it to see what it runs with it whistling

In the past (racing is 99% dead over here so meanwhile sold the car) I have gone 8.9's with my Challenger.

Guestimate at around 2900lbs
528 pumpgas, flat tapped cammed, single dominator, Hemi
Gforce clutchless 4speed and adj. clutch I believe from Hyatt.
Dana60 with 456 gears and 33" slicks.

Had some topend troubles with the engine so was potential a 8.7 I guess.


'72 Challenger rallye 528 Hemi -> streettoy
'72 Duster, 340ci -> 12.6

Have a 70 cuda with an alum 572 hemi and a G5R-Gforce 5 speed. When i took out the wedge and put the hemi in, the car hasn't been on the clocks much. They did turn them on at a no prep event in final round and it went 6.0@115 on motor in 1/8. Tranmission isnt clutchless, and it has 2 kits on it. I use a twin disc slipper and it runs on holley efi with individual coil packs. The car is on a 29X10.5W or a 28X10.5 and currently has a 4.10 gear. Currently putting together new motor for it and doing some upgrades to rear suspension.

Thanks for sharing, looking for inspiration. I'm putting together a 69 Dart stock bottom end/head 5.9 magnum, cam/springs, air gap intake, Centerforce clutch 440 source flywheel, 2.66 23 spline A833, 8 3/4 3.23 gears (I have a complete 3.91 742 center if needed) Hoping it will run in the 7's 1/8.

I have one I still need to sort out. ‘74 cuda, 3650 race weight. 511/trickflow 270, tkx 5-speed. I managed to make a couple easy passes this summer but didn’t have a rollcage yet so I launched and shifted easy.
Went 11.26@130.5.

How do you like the TKX gearbox? Does the shifter go smooth at high RPM's ? I haven't read many reviews about how they react on the strip with some HP in front of them.

The shifter I got from silversport is a bit of a long throw. First and second gear are a bit lower than ideal. 5th is really tall.
I shift at 67-6800 It still seems a bit catchy at high rpm but it could be my clutch needs more engagement. I’m not in love with the hydraulic setup because I have to push the pedal clear to the floor before it disengages. Although that could be adjustment issues. I am hoping I can shim it. I think it will be a nice setup once I have it worked out. But I do feel it’s going to be a better street trans than strip. And with a smaller cubic inch setup I think the gearing would be better suited. My 511 really starts to pull hard once I hit 3rd.
Fwiw I’m running a 29” slick and 4.10 rear. I still think mid 10s aren’t going to be a problem once I start making real passes.

Thanks I have a few of my 833 customers asking me about converting their cars over to some type of OD box. The online claims as to the strength of this box are as usual seem highly inflated. I have built a few T56 transmissions and the design prohibits high speed power shifts even when the gears are face-plated.
I may just sell a few of my transmissions and buy one of these boxes as my car is more street than strip right now. I only hope that is will hold up to the torque and weight of my car with sticky tires. I will probably install the adjustable clutch or try one of those Clutch Tamer deals to keep the teeth on the gears.
