Thanks Seymour. That’s disappointing.

And that's a record for what class? :)

I should submit those from the AHRA Nationals for the 1/8 mile.
Just FYI: I ran the Mopar's in the Park at Tulsa and set even faster times (although not eligible for Slant Six Racing records). I ran 10.388 at 122.44 mph in the 1/4, and 6.470 at 102.97 in the 1/8.
I'll get those time slips rounded up and submitted, because I am switching to alcohol for the 2022 season. At least I think I am.

Look there! I found them. I also found the application form I had already filled out but I guess I never sent it in.

Here is the last time slip for 2021. I am amazed at how much I can get out of this engine in the same basic configuration as 2020. Same cam, carb, fuel, pistons, head, intake, ignition, headers. Just tweaking here and there, adjustments here and there, and a little more tweaking. Major differences from 2020 to 2021 was a higher stall torque converter, a little better cylinder honing (but still not with a torque plate), some timing retard, and playing with jets. Turns out the slant doesn't like that much timing. My goal was 9.99 in the 1/4, and I think I could get there on gas, but I am switching to methanol.

Cool stuff Jeff!

You should start a thread in Virtual Dragstrip so all your posts about the car are all in the same place and easy for people to follow along with your progress.

There is also the Best Times thread for 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile and 60 foot times. A lot of us post our best times there. You just copy the last post and add your new information where it fits. Your quicker 10.388 could go there.

EDIT: I added your 1/8 mile best time for you and then saw you had already put a 1/4 mile time from July... My badness... :oops:

Carry on! :lol:

Thanks for that. I was unaware of the 1/8 mile list. Looks like just two ahead of me on that list.
Just FYI: I bought an enclosed trailer that will be transporting the #43 in 2022. (along with my wife's new golf cart pending availability)
I'm tentatively planning on making three races eastward. Clay City / London / Sikesville / and-or Knoxville depending on what races get organized.

BTW: Mark asked if I would take over as the coordinator for the Mokan race and I agreed. I'm pretty sure that one will be a go. Carl is very accommodating to the slant six racers.

Found my slips from Jeffers Motorsports Park. I’ll get these copied and another request form filled out and sent in.

Record run was 6.5184 at 102.65 mph
Backup run was 6.5746 at 102.02 mph (+ 0.8%)

This was on Sept 5th 2021.

So with that, don’t I get extra points?

Not that it would make any difference.
I was actually trying to leave some room for others, like maybe the #42 SDRA, or others, so maybe they are the snoozers.
:D
