7.80 = 12.246 1/4 mile? Nice! Think you will be in the 11's next
time out with the power cranked up?

What size/brand of tires? How much air pressure?

What was the reason/details? I'm unclear.

I'm partial to the Wilwood one:

It's been out for a while and is still the newest model/style on the market.

The Hurst line lock is proven and has a good rep:

Summit has one exactly like it for less $$$

If you don't like all those allen head set screws in that steering
shaft, this company offers one that is all welded up for some $$$

Click on the pic and you can see the welds instead of setscrews.


Nice car and good luck.
