What do the NMRA 302 cars run? Do you guys suppose that this car may have ran that class? I wish I could read the name on the driver's window. It looks like Marcel something.
I don't recall the fastest run ever in NMRA Factory Stock with a windsor 302... bottom 11's at official full race weight was common.
min. weight was around 3150lbs for a GT40 head car... and, if I recall they were forced to run BFG drag radials.
I know a few of the guys would pull weight out (recal them getting down to around 3000lbs) throw slicks under them and run solidly into the 10's "for fun".
So, pull 500lbs out of that car and put a good tire under it...
Friend went 11.4's with a truly stock notch fed with n2o back in the day on a 26x8 slick, 4.10's... think he had a 125 shot, maybe 150, don't recall... race weight would have been around 3150lbs (full weight car, small driver).
This was at a track where d/a would go negative... so, keep that in mind.
Take that car, do some chassis work, put a big tire on it (low 1.4's 60'?) with skinnies out front, remove 800lbs and put 200+n2o's to it... it's not out of reach... especially if he runs where d/a goes into negative 1000's.
Oddly enough, his car was yellow too.
Maybe it's just the yellow ones are fast
