John Kolivas has been 4.78 on the 275's. as far as I know there are no sb/nos cars running in the 4's on the 275.

The closest that I know of is a [email protected] 140 by one the RPM guys out of NC. But there are a couple other people knocking on the door too! I quietly root against them, but would absolutely applaud them if it's done before I get a shot.:salute:
rpm builds some bad LS cars......they did my zo6.....

88gtguy Good luck...I too will be shooting for fours. However, I will be using a sbf and 28 x 10" slicks. Kolivas is a FREAK on radials and have you heard of Sammy's new setup? Already been 7.30's with neal heads, a sheet metal intake, two carbs and three foggers...FIRST TIME OUT WITH THE NEW COMBO! James

You ever run near richmond? Looks like thats where im going this saturday. I called and asked rules etc. He told me if i run 11.50s I need a cage..Im like hugh? Im expecting low 11s high 10s right off the trailor. I told him its a street car! He said as long as i dont repeat low 11 passes and maybe do 1/8th mile passes instead. Man Va is a wierd state!

I did hear about that. Impressive for sure. The one thing I have going against me I guess is the weight I need to be at. Race weight for the class is 3100. Isn't SSO weights for a nitrous combo something like 2500-2600? That's a pretty big difference!
Base weight is 2600 lbs. 50 lb weight break for running a stock suspension and 50 lb weight break for single carb, cast intake. I believe Sammy has to weigh 2600. Yeah, 500 -600 lbs is a huge difference...you're going to need two carbs. lol James

I sent my carbs out to be worked over, and I was almost reprimanded for them not be BIG enough! lol I got the " I thought you told me these were 1150's!" geez! :eeek: Then I got the " I'll see what I can do. They're not ideal, but I'll "try" and make them work." lol

I just had to laugh about this one a bit! I can't argue too much, this guy did the carbs for a 400" sbc that made 1170hp n/a!
That's big block territory! I am shooting for around 930 on the motor and 1500 on the juice! I got my intake back from Steve Johnson. It looks sweet!!! Pics are posted over on Yellow Bullet under "intake porn" by Steve Johnson. James
