  1. I love my 4.11 gears with traction lok, it gets out of the hole real fast now. My car is driven around town 95% of the time so no problems or regrets here. I did the install myself, it was a pretty straight forward job for an experienced gearhead, no pun intended.
  2. We like our Edelbrock 600 carb, it works great with my combo but did require a bit of tuning to get it really dialed in. I have summit racing 4.11 gears in my car now, they are a blast in town but if you drive 60+ alot I wouldn't recommend them. A 3.25 ratio would probably be the ticket here.
  3. Very nice, 71-73 convertibles are great cars.
  4. It looks like medium copper metallic ro me, but I am usually wrong when it comes ro these cars haha.
  5. Excellent post and great advice. A self tuned distributor is the way to go. Duraspark distributors work great, I use them on all of my Ford builds with great results.
  6. Today we drove around town with the new 4.11 gears, Since we drive at 60 mph or less all of the time we went with that ratio. By driving around town today it feels like we made the right choice with the 4.11's :)
  7. Nice ride, everyone will kmow what kind of car it is with the billboard Mach 1 graphics on the quarter panels ::thumb::
  8. Geoff, sorry to hear about the rider that died at the the track. I am 100% with you on the the 1/8 th mile deal, unfortunately only the sportsman class can run the quarter mile at this time. We use our car for everything and it gets driven daily so it isn't limited to just track duty. 71-73 mustangs are my passion and will be for years to come. Take care man.
  9. It was pure luck but I would like to think it was my cat like reflexes. I installed 4.11 gears in it about a month ago so I am hoping to get in a good 60 ft. time and hopefully run in the low 8's next time out :D
  10. Blue masking tape is your friend. Last time we went to the track I managed a .000 reaction time, it went down hill from there haha.
  11. Our track is 1/8 th mile also. It sounds like you had fun so that's what counts ::thumb::
  12. Well, how did it do? Our local track is reopening after being closed down for 8 years and we cant wait to get up there to get some passes in.
