  • Race video

    Maybe some of you would like to look at this video on a cold winter day. Here is a video from my race at Edgewater Sports Park in Ohio. I included the trip back on the return road at some time in the pits. It was all stick shift cars and lots of fun. I've never raced there, but I lived nearby and we would go down in the 60's to watch. Going down the track has been something I wanted to do for years. The Street Outlaw guys were there and the track hooked well.
    After that on the video the other race is from a flag race I try to do every year. Everyone made 5 passes and the guy with the most wins gets the trophy. I got beat once by the 1956 Corvette Gasser. I had a better ET and MPH but he jumped the flag and won. It seemed a few guys did that and went off the tree, so I decided to do the same in the last race. I still had a blast.
    Thanks for watching,
    Richard

        Thanks for posting, Richard.
        There isn't much that sounds sweeter than a Stude V8 at 6000 rpm. Congrats on your performance.
        Have you pics of your intake? Have you considered a FITech for comparison purposes. We have had great initial success here in Arizona albeit not in race conditions.
        Check out my posts in '59 Cab 259 thread.
        Cheers, Bill

              Thanks all,
              It is a lot of fun to let that clutch out and go. I'm just .011 from a 1.4xx 60'. It didn't hook as good at the flag drags.
              I don't know anything about the FITech system I will look it up. Glad you guys liked the videos.
              Maybe too much RPM for a 4" stroke? It was not my intention to take it that high! It hooked and went right down the track, but not as smooth as Robin.
              This is a shot of the intake, it's new for 2018.
              Thanks,
              Richard

                Thank you. Looks like a Demon-what size? Amazing intake pics. Now I see why you deleted the hood.
                Do you think the electric H2O pump would be streetable?

                  It's a 750 Mighty Demon. I also have a 750 Speed Demon that's just one step down and is a street strip carb. I'm not sure if the electric pump would work on the street but I never over heat as long as I remember to turn it on! I've had people think it has a blower, and that's even with the hood off, so if it had a hood it would really confuse people. They focus on the intake and the engine so the hood will be off but the aerodynamics are not good.

                      My nephew has wanted to come for a visit and take my Mean Green Challenger to the tracks so we did that at Wagler Motorsports Park in Lyons Indiana. It was the weekend the Southeast Gassers Association was here and they always put on a great show. The Challenger has not been out much and I have been really having a lot of trouble getting off the line without spinning the slicks. You can see that on the first pass on this video as I smoked the slicks. You can see the smoke in the video. Second pass went better after I found the front brakes were dragging and adjusted them. It looks like a master cylinder problem not letting them release. I didn't have enough front brake after the adjustment to hold the line lock so I didn't get a good burnout. They have a long shut down so that went well. After the second pass you see here I tried to get another pass but the front brakes locked up on the pit road and the car would hardly move so I was done for the day.
                      Enjoy, Richard

                        Good Grief, Richard; you couldn't hear the announcer when you were in the car, but right at 00.20 in the video, the announcer starts speculating on what engine the Studebaker might have in it! Ford? Chevy?

                        At least he acknowledges that it might have a Studebaker engine in it...but he finally settles down and says he thinks it must have a Chevy in it!

                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                          Maybe the announcer ought to learn how to READ:
