In Car Video of LS1 At the Track
Sorry about the lack of editing. I don't have the software right now.
This is me in my 2000 LS1 Firebird Formula. This was about a 4500 RPM
launch on a Textralia clutch and Moser 12-Bolt. I know I'm granny shifting
but that's how my tranny has lasted me 7 years and over 117,000 miles
without ever being cracked open! This run was about a high 11 to low 12
second pass at about 116 mph.
Vintage Drag Racing, 1955 World Series of Drag Racing
Footage of the 1955 World Series of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, IL.
Includes Art Arfons' Green Monster 2, a 20 foot long, six wheeled car
powered by a 2000 horsepower Allison aircraft
engine. It was hitting 100 miles per hour in the quarter mile at this
event. Green Monster Number 2 was painted by Arfons' mother to resemble the
World War II Curtiss P-40 Flying Tigers fighter airplane, with an open
mouth showing large teeth. The top speed of the car was estimated at 270
miles per hour, and it could reach 140 miles per hour in eight seconds from
a standing start. Running on passenger car tires, the car required four
wheels on the rear drive axle to withstand the power. At the World Series
of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, Illinois, it clocked the highest top speed
at 132.35 mph, and eventually went on to a world record of 145.16 mph.

race 2: 93 camaro v 06 mustang
talk about how old pushrod technology is, how its a miracle the LT1 even
Must have been a fluke because that Mustang is over 13 years newer and
has twice the cams! twice the cams and 1.5 times the valves! it must be at
least 2.5 times as fast!
