Swapped the Dragster for this,had no drivetrain, had a blown up turbo motor that I picked up on the shelve,,,had a 1915 T3 60trim,sitting here and a 2276 w/T04,, so had fun this summer, cracked some cylinders & washed the rings,,(fuel pressure issue)haven't run the T3 combo yet too:cold
only got to drive it 6 time's total this year:cry:
4th time/pass I did a [email protected]:embarrass:granny launch bonestock trans:timebomb: 1:9 60 foot :( I sure with more seat time plus a Built trans,,I will do better,and the fact I had the 1915 T04 on it, didn't spool none to quick:(
