Oh yea thats Robert, he has a 308 in a '88 Tbird. His car runs 8.0s @ 86 1/8mi all day long, and has gone high 7.8s in cool weather(thats approx 12.40 or quicker 1/4). His engine is similar to mine(same Trick Flow heads), but has the Stage-2 TF cam, Eldebrock performer RPM intake, long tube headers, 4000 stall and 4.30 gears. Also has poly bushings in all the suspension, boxed controll arms, etc. He drives the car 100 miles (round trip) to the drag strip nearly every Saturday, changes to his M/T ET Drag slicks and races in the Pro class. The Car is very consistant, and Rob cuts a deadly light. He finished first in the points in his class.
