What Does Your Pro "Street" Car Run?

Well after seeing there was a lack of posts in this section, I started thinking "Do any of the Pro Street cars make it to the track?" and if they do, What kind of numbers are they laying down?

To "me" a street car runs on pump gas and can be driven at highway speeds, doesn't need a support vehicle or trailer to get to the track. Needs to have treaded tires of some sort. Other than that anything goes.

If you haven't taken your car to the track, Do you plan to?

Re: What Does Your Pro "Street" Car Run?

I am still building it and I don't know that I would call it "Pro Street" it's just a street car. My goal is to run 9's on pump gas (91 octane unleaded) and street tires, while driving it to and from the track.

How about yours?

6.10 to 6.12 in 1/8 mile with 461 BB on the M/T Sportsmans, have not been to track yet with current 468 BB. I'll probably need to run a set of slicks next time.

Good to see you have been to the track. With tires that wide your selection of "good" tires is limited. Slicks may be your only choice. One thing you may want to try is sprint car tires. All the tubbed cars used to run those before there were pro street style tires. The sprint car tires are soft and get real sticky since they are made for dirt. The good news is they are pretty cheap too. That way you can get by with driving them on the street cause they have tread.

David..What would a 6.10 in the 1/8th work out to be in the 1/4 mile?
Once I get some some better skins on the rear of the 68..I would like to take a stab at the 1/8th mile.It sounds like a ton of fun without having to cross the stripes at a scary mph.PS-That new 468 is a beast..wrinkle walls would be a nice birthday gift.

Royce,
Thanks for the info on the sprint car tires, I will check them out.

George,
I'm not 100% positive but I think the 1/4 mile time would be 10.0 to high 9.9s. We are not fortunate to have a 1/4 mile track very close. Closest one that I am aware of is Hotlanta.Yeah I got to get some better tires on it, I almost put it into a pole the day after my friend and I got it back on the road. I wasn't acquainted with the added horsepower. I kept it under control(barely) and didn't damage anything(except my boxer shorts!!!) I learned a very valuable lesson.

David..I have a neighbor that clicks off mid nines with his 68 Firebird n/a 400 Poncho.He warned me about running the 1/4 mile with stock upper control arms.His tubulars have a ton of caster that you can not grab easily with oem crap.This is why I would like to try 1/8th mile with my humble little street deal and keep the mph down.

.......and I also believe 1/8th mile is a little easier on all of our $$ parts.

Re: What Does Your Pro "Street" Car Run?

I have not taken my car to the track either since I put the blower motor in. The motor I have came out of a buddies 70 nova with the same setup I have and weight. He ran a 9.90 in his nova. I am hoping to run around the same.

I just bought some Mickey Thompson SR radials. They are 33 x 22 x 15. I had a set of 19.5 Et Streets on it before but got caught in the rain and it wasnt a good thing. Now since I put the SR Radials on the tires they aint worth a damn. The car wants to wobble meaning the rear rocks side to side. Not wheel hop. It is very scary. If you lay into it easy it wont do it. I am going to leave them on till Cruisin the Coast in Mississippi then I am going to put the ET Streets back on to see if it goes away. If it does I will swap the ET's to my new rims and sell the SR Radials. I talked to a tire guy and he thought it was the belts in the tires doing it.

Anybody else have any ideas. It did not do it till I changed the rims and tires. It rides great cruisin.

Re: What Does Your Pro "Street" Car Run?

I don't know if you would call my street racer "Pro Street" since it only has mini tubs. But it is a full steel (glass hood), All roll up glass, complete interior (with backseat), pump gas car (with tailpipes) that drives 35 miles to the track (sometimes) and has posted 9.30s with the score boards on. it has run faster with the boards off on all the nitrous.

Here is a No Times run at our local No Bull Nationals. Each car has to do a 20 mile cruise to the track, pull names out if a hat, line um up and race um till the last one is standing.

I had to draw a 477CI 14-71 blow, Alchol injected monster that has run 7.70s in the first round!

My car is a 404CI pump gas motor with a plate! Turbo 350 and the original 12 bolt!

I gave him all he wated and a bag of chips!

On a normal 9.30s / 143 mph pass I go through the traps at 7400RPMs. I went thtough at 7650RPM according to my playback (about 148 MPH or so), He went through at 8700! About 170, LOL!

Got me by a fender!

That's getting with it. Are you running 9.30's and faster on pump gas? Or does the car run on pump gas when on the street?
