      That's more than respectable. That's getting into R2 territory.

      This will be very instructive. We know the OEM iron intake is a choke point. If you change just that, it will be indicative of how restrictive.

              Thanks,

              Here is another heads up run. I was a little too quick on the lights by -.028 sec but it gave a nice hole shot lead and the Stude held him off almost to the finish.

              I believe this was a 2019 Dodge Scat Pack 392 Hemi with the factory racing tire package. He won narrowly with a 12.23 @ 113.22. At the 1/8 the Hemi pulled a 7.828 @ 89.17 on a 1.747 launch. I don't believe it was the Hellcat version because that Hemi is rated at 700+ hp. But the 392 has over 400 Hp I believe and it was showing up on the top end.

              If you listen carefully you can hear the rapid high rpm formula one shifting of that Hemi automatic several times. With a powerglide I can only make one shift and hold on. Enjoy!

                So what's the street and track performance of a factory R-1 dragged out of Florida after 40 years of neglect abandonment. Made two test runs Friday to find out. Rear is 3.31 automatic. Did Road and Track document test an R-1? Would like to compare any known magazine test results.

                Best run: 16.28 @ 83.95 through new Silvertone pipes and quiet tone mufflers. (tom c)

                  Short in car video of last Friday's Avanti street performance track test. 50 in low and 80 in second gear. Enjoy!

                    Is that the rust ratty gold one we picked up east of Orlando?
                    If it is, you have accomplished a ton of work on it.

                      Yep, that's the one we picked up in November 2015 from the yard. Today I installed a tachometer. Didn't want to have to pull the dash again for that out of sight-reach tach can. Hope to retest this weekend if the storm goes away fast.

                        Performance test results from Friday after the storm passed. Nice improvement and knocking on possible high 15 second pass. Believe the quiet tone mufflers and tall gearing are holding it back some. Maybe next time. (tom c)

                          Good results. IIRC, that's pretty much what stock small block cars were turning back in the day.

                            Results of performance runs Friday evening 20th. First run got under the 16 second floor with a 15.89 @ 85.88. Followed up with a run of 15.78 @ 86.17. Air temperature measurements in the carb horn area showed 165 degrees. (tom c)

                                Here is one of the runs. Really like this new tach. Upping the shift point to 5500 is helping performance but the tall gearing is making it a one shift run. Believe she'll go 15.50 with a 3.54 or 3.73 ratio or open exhausts. New radius rod bushings has solved the wheel hop. Had no bushing support because of deterioration. This car has an unusual rear spring pack. The 5th spring plate is really thick. Not like my other 63 Avanti. Might be from being an early serial number car. The mop man always seems to appear whenever I stage. Did a burn out but still got a chirp slip when the secondaries opened fully. Thanks for viewing factory stock R-1.
