[:0]Hey guys we got the 355 cui in the old bemmer and made a pass at the local drag stip and went a 10.03 second pass on the first run!!!!!!!!!! We couldn't belive it and that was just testing out the car. We next hooked up some good slicks and pulled the front wheels I couldn't belive how well the car launched. Every one at the track sort of laughed when we showed up with a 1983 bmw to drag race. Well once we started the engine and they heard that 355 growl I think they sort of changed their mind. And really took a look when we went a 10 second pass. Well I can hardly wait to get on the street and show the kids with their honda's what a little cui can do; well we are running about 400 or more h.p. and we haven't even put the nitro to it. I'll keep you imformed on further adventures of Bills (Canadian guys) crazy little project, obtw we are getting the old 73' tx ready for the grass drags we put a 5500 spring in the clutch and man does it launch, well if Im not at the drag strip with a car I guess you"ll find me at the grass drags.[:D]

oh, ok. I was gonna say. I thought all cars that approached 10 secs required roll cages at least by NHRA or IHRA rules.

Sounds possible, but you either have mad hook up, or you grossly underestimated your HP if you are turning a 10.
