Of course! :D

Duster ran a 14.19 this morning, so pretty consistent.

The Duster didn't miss a beat all weekend. It even won all the marbles! :D

It ran 13.97-14.19 every single pass. :wink:

Best pass was I believe a 13.97 @ 94 MPH.

I'm really itching to spend time making lots of little improvements, but I'm resisting the temptation so I can focus on the Challenger.

When I got home I put it up on jack stands to look things over, snug a few bolts, change the oil and flush the block and radiator. That will have it ready for the next adventure. :wink:

What cam, carburetor and gear is in that Duster and how much does it weigh? If this is all proprietary stuff, I understand...lol.

Hey Brad!

Nothing proprietary here. :wink:

I haven't weighed it, but basing on comparison's with GodsRods Duster I ( viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5217 ) I would say it weighs somewhere around 2,500-2,600 without the 190 lb driver. I do plan to find a scale to put it on soon. This is the same engine from GRD I.

The rear is a Ford 8" with 4.62 gears and a mini spool. Tires are 28X9-15 M/T drag slicks.

Carb is a Holley 650 "Double Pumper" :lol:

Cam is an Engle 276. I'll have to dig up the actual cam card somewhere...

It also has a good torque converter in it... I've mixed and matched things a few times, but I believe it's rated at 4500 RPM... Maybe a PTC...

I adjusted the air pressure in the new slicks and did some launches in the driveway.
What a difference! :shock: :D

Haha, I missed that air space. Guess there is a jack involved, or there is a hole in the neighbor's house?

I am going to cut the cameraman's shirt tail off if he can't turn his camera the right way! I pulled a muscle in my neck looking at it again!! :D :D :D

I noticed that too. Interesting thing is, the orientation is correct when viewed on my cellphone.

When I click on the pic it gets bigger and rotates to the correct orientation.
That thing sure leaves hard!

Yeah,... that twisty photo thing... I take 'em upright, but when I use the Forum upload feature it "sometimes" rotates 'em like that. And it only views that way on my computer, not my cell phone... :?

Just saying.
