Big Block Chevy Vega Wagon Wheelie
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.
Hurst Lightning Rods Triple Shifter Operation - 1984 Hurst/Olds
Just a quick take on the basic operation of a triple shifter. I got my
thoughts mixed up explaining the shifting sequence(s), but hopefully it
makes sense. At the time the car was produced "Hurst Lightning Rods"
shifter package was presented exclusively in the 83' & 84' Hurst/Olds;
however they can be retro fitted to other vehicles. I also did a rolling
start (30mph) to 85+, and then a 0-60.
