Good Idea. I live in South Australia, about 400km out of Adelaide. We have our own 1/8th mile strip which is called Steel City Drag Strip. I am willing to obtain transmission from anywhere in Australia. Here are a few details about my ride.
XTGT Ford Sedan ( Running gear not original )
351C, C6, 9 Inch with 4.56:1
Engine Specs: 12.7:1 comp, Stuffed 4V CC Heads, Funnelweb intake, 750HP Holley, 260 deg at 0.050 cam, about 0.600 lift. Block is 0.030 over with 2 bolt mains. Block is studded, both mains and heads. Crank is 4MA. Rods are stock, but have been ground and polished and bushed for fully floating pistons.
Best time is 7.46 on 1/8th mile.
I have a 5000 converter, but can only stall up to 2000rpm on the brakes.
I need a transbrake so I can launch at 5000rpm, car should ET better. My current 60 foot time is 1.76.
I am considering swapping c6 for a full manual, transbraked c4.
