Its been a while since I have been active on here, but I thought I'd share what our 'ol black Trans Am is doing these days. A couple of weeks ago at Rockingham for the Spring Civil Wars event we set a new best ET along with a class record MPH! Unfortunately, the transmission lost drive in the 2nd round of eliminations.

1.239 sixty ft
5.44 @ 133.07 mph 1/8 mile

On the pass it broke it set a new best 60 ft time of a 1.222! I think we may have been on our way to a 5.3x pass Sad

We race a 275 drag radial limited "real street" class. Without posting all of the rules, the big ones are as follows: Engines must run stock valve angle cylinder heads (15 degree for LS combos), 4150 flange intake manifolds (no dominator flanges), and nitrous small block combos must weight 3150 lbs with driver. No progressive controllers, no wheelie bars.

Our car has a darton sleeved LS2 block making 427 cubic inches. Off the shelf wiseco pistons, callies compstar connecting rods, and a callies dragonslayer crankshaft.

We went with a solid roller Comp camshaft, Isky lifters, All Pro cathedral cylinder heads, and a MAST carb style intake manifold for fuel injection. A Nitrous Pro Flow carb style plate provides the nitrous injection.

The sleeves were installed by Steve at Race Engine Devolopment in CA. Final machining was done by S&M Performance who we have used for years. I handled the final assembly in house.

For anyone looking to build a serious engine whether it be an LS, LT, or SBC let us know. We aren't the cheapest, but for those who want to step away from the normal crate engines and build something custom let me know.

Our brand new dynojet 224xLC is on the way and hopefully an engine dyno will soon follow. Cool

Congrats on the 60ft! I can't imagine what it would be like to launch that hard, or honestly go that fast!! Keep up the good work, you guys didn't get your great reputation by having/building slow cars!

I haven't rode in that car since it had the H/C setup from that now-defunct speed shop out of Charlotte, I think it's time I see it again Very Happy

I tried to find your new shop using Google Maps on my phone on Saturday but it took me to a Thunder Ln that had a couple of run down trailers on it, about 4 miles down a road near I-77/89. I was pretty bummed that wasn't it. For some reason Thunder Rd didn't come up.

Ive your that black TA at Piedmont and Charlie's Camaro...too bad the RS275 rules have recently added 50# to ANY 15* LS head ,stock or aftermarket...and TFS are ILLEGAL no exceptions...
If you went 5.30's they ban you for having a black car...
