A little too much launch RPM resulted in the car hitting the wheelie bars and staying there. I lifted to get the front end back down. I then got right back on it and it jacked the front end right back up. I lifted again and aborted the run. 4,000rpm launch which is still a full 1,000rpm BELOW the engines peak torque! Crushed 4 primary header tubes on this pass.
Big Block Chevy Vega Wagon 8.86 at 153mph
This is the run I made right after the big wheelie pass (see my other vids
to see that run). This pass was made with 4 primary header tubes collapsed
to about half their original size as a result of coming down from the
wheelstand the run before. I still haven't raised the shift point yet.
Still short shifting at 7,000rpm.
