Incredible, congratulations Ed.
I'm assuming the black Road Runner. Will it be retired from FAST duty now that it's into the 10's?

Way to go, Ed.  That had to be a very satisfying pass.  Was he able to make a few consecutive 10 sec passes?  What a way to represent the lift-off crowd.

That is an amazing feat to say the very least.
Congrats to Ed and everyone who helped make that possible  [smiley=beer.gif]

Can you imagine what the full blown racers must think when they see that stocker ;) run those times on bias ply tires 8-)

I'm thinking there's a Hemi or two out there that Ed would like to beat before he retires it?

Awsome Ed, look forward to seeing them run at ETown next month!

Dave the car will be retired this year as soon as the Maxie has the bugs worked out. I am not sure if I will start to restore it right away or wait to see if it needs to be called back to duty.

You know the car as been a race car a lot longer then it's been a show car!  :)

I would love to take the big man down once before we retire her though!!!!! :o

Post by Dave Watt on 04/27/09 at 22:52:37

The Road Runner is beautiful as is. Might need to keep it as a backup if James' car blows the trans out again. :o
Was it a racecar before Troy restored it?
It will be something to see how your Maxie runs too.

The black Hemi can't stay at the top forever. ;)

Congrat's Ed and Mike, James way to go.

Thanks Ralph

Without all the help from everyone this could have never happened.  Mike B never gives up even when I thought we where as far as it would go, He finds a little more!

James is really kicking butt with the 4spd car his time is up in the ranks now with all the big boys! (Very Proud). We are building a F/S stick car for my youngest son Eddie for 2010


I just hope I can do it again?

Post by GRANNY SHIFTER on 04/30/09 at 18:24:45

VERY COOL, leave it as a race car, the car hobby is full of show poodles but not to many that look like yours and run 10's.  I get a lot more attention from telling me my car is still raced and runs 12's than it ever gets from just being antoher A12. ;)

Fill the spare tire with bags of lead shot, then refill with air, very old trick in "Pure Stock" racing.

GREAT job Ed. I am truly impressed. You are almost as quick as my Bracket car. I am bragging on your car, not mine. If I had your engine in my Dart, it would go low to mid 10's. I hope that you keep it race ready, just in case.

Never seen the car, but in my opinion cars are like people; It's the wear and scares which give it caracter- do not ruin it...

There will be 8 or 9 of the FAST Mopsrs at MAryland International Raceway including Dave Dudek, Ed and James Cook and more. They put on an amazing supercar show!

I don't know if the guys were able to make any runs this weekend? It's too bad but the weather was not very cooperative.

Post by Ed Cook on 11/02/09 at 19:21:55

Jd

We where able to run at VMP on Friday. Finally put the car back in the tens,  back to back tens this time!

Maryland was a washout but we may try to do something there in the spring? The track looks really nice.

Way to go Ed. Was it the bald rear tires that helped?

Title: Re: 10 sec A12
Post by Ed Cook on 11/03/09 at 18:53:09

Jim

Believe it or not they still have tread! Tried a different converter and I think it help? I also had a fuel delivery problem that was hurting me on the big end. Simple thing but it had me fooled for quite a few races.

I think the car is back!

Title: Re: 10 sec A12
Post by Dave Watt on 11/03/09 at 19:10:52

That's good news Ed. I know the car was not 100% for a few races but figured it would come back around.

I got about half way there to see you guys and it started raining. Harry told me you were packing it up so I turned around. It was dry all afternoon about 40 miles West of MIR. I really hated not catching up to everyone! :-/

Thats awesome glad to here you got it figured out, my problem is my clutch slips on the big end when it gets hot not a big deal I can fix that in my sleep. You shoud bring that beast to Milan next fall and stand that thing up on it's bumper ;D.  I can see it now 10.65 at 129mph.
