I think it will probably make a full pass but it is going to be over 8000 rpm.

Took the cars out this weekend got a new best in the Blue car. We had some issues with traction in both cars this weekend. I put a tighter converter in for nitrous which slowed the car down to low 10s. But on the spray it hooked one pass and pulled a pretty good wheelie so we tightened up the front struts and pretty much spun every pass after that. Still got it to go in the 5s and had a top mph of 117.6 so once I get the starting line figured out should go 5.70s. This time slip is actually of me and my son running each other I spun so bad I had to pedal it. This was his best pass in the Ole Blue  to date.

I think it's a 9 inch but not sure I have had it for many years and don't remember it was built for my 454ci Clevor and went about 5500 on that engine.

Took the car out this weekend and had new bests everywhere. The first pass it got up on the tire and stood up and my son had to pedal it. Went back to the pits tighten up the front struts and pulled 3 degrees more timing and we were getting down track clean all day 5.86, 5.84, and 5.87 bottle low. Ran it out the 1/4 one pass and turned it 8100rpm out the back.

It was a 72 jet in a old NX stage 6 plate that induction solutions flowed and provided tunes for E85.
