    Alright what do ya guys think about this one...
    A 600+ cubic inch Nitro Methane burning 6500 Horsepower top fuel motor for my daily driven '72 K/5?
    Any Pros/Cons with Nitro Methane?

    Besides having to get ahold of John Force for this engine, and having to tear it down and rebuild it after every drive to work or school, and the price of fuel..... I think it'll be worth it. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif


    .....Okay maybe i've just been breathing too much nitro at the Autolite Nationals this weekend.
    That was faw*%n COOL! Some of the best racing i've ever seen...
    I'd say the highlight was probally Kenny Bernstein's 317 MPH run.... fastest MPH and ET for the weekend I believe.
    You can catch the highlights on "RPM Tonight" on Espn2.

    Anyone else go to sears point to see the big boys NHRA drags?

    Might be tough......my G-Tech Pro only has a 3-digit readout for HP!!!

    I suspect traction might be a slight issue too.
