Should have never sold the dually 5 years ago...back to the thread though, when I licensed with Frank Hawley his Firebirds were running 9:20's with high 140's and that's a full chassis car with 14/32's of course. Felt plenty quick...and these stockers are going much faster on 9 inch tires...no thanks for my old carcass. Don't know how much the really fast guys have in these stockers but has to be over 200K.
