We threw the shop Camaro back together after a 5 year break. Here are the specs

1968 Camaro, 25.5 stock suspension chassis 3300 lbs
Cal Trac bars and mono leafs
TH400 trans, old 10" converter (junk)
496" with CFM Edelbrock heads (flow 465)
13.5:1, .825" lift nitrous grind
3.70 rear gear in a 9"
275/60/15 MT drag radial

1st time out we realized it had a broken sprag in the trans and only had 1st and 3rd gears. The car ran 9.65 @ 141 on motor alone into a 25mph head wind. We turned on the nitrous and blasted a 5.65 @ 124 with a 200 shot, 2 gears, and more head wind.

We fixed the trans and are taking the car to Georgia for the big radial race next weekend. Looking to go 5.30's down there and 5 teens when we get a better converter. Wish us luck! Stop by the Dark Green 68 Camaro in X275 and say hello.
