For those have not heard, the Flyin' Whale is back in New England (in my garage). I found her at an auction and she arrived on a trailer just before the Winter weather set in. I am hoping to get her on the road and to the track next month.
When Henry built her she ran low 12's on street radials and had to be walked slowly off the line due to a lack of traction.
'68 Sport Fury street/strip car built to be streetable and run in the SuperCar Racer series (similar to F.A.S.T.), which means it must be stock appearing and race on factory size street tires (G70/15 bias ply in my case - the widest size offered on the Fury in 1968).
520" wedge professionally built by the late Nick Wilson of Compu-Flow. 3.73 sure grip, TTI 2.5" exhaust. Very traction limited on the small tires. Best run to date 13.45 @ 97 MPH. I need to do some suspension work and get better at driving the car and is should be in the 12's on the small tires.
Put some loose front shocks on, and move as much weight to rear of trunk. I'm guessing the rules have you keeping the exhaust manifolds. Looks like fun.
I have drag shocks for the front - just need to get them on. Getting the KYB's on there now to compress enough for removal is going to be a real PIA. Rules do not allow headers, limit the exhaust system size to 2.5" and limit how radical the cam can be and more. Some of the racers running Road Runners, GTX's, Novas and Chevelles are running high 10's but they have high compression ratios and run on racing fuel whereas my engine is a pump gas engine with a 10:1 compression ratio.
Get a length of wire cable like garage door cable have ends crimped one small to slip over stud to get stuck on boss other to just make it to the bolt hole on the bottom. Slide a bolt in to hold it compressed. Keep in tool box forever as c body shock tool.
Well Dave.... I have headers now!
And they’re attached to a bit more displacement. Lol
very sweet package there !
So when are we hitting the track.
Rumors at Finland says, this car is coming to track finally...
Don't know any details, just came across this picture.
^^^^ Looks like Keystone Raceway Park near Pittsburgh Pa.
Yep! My old home track.
I’ll be at Freebird raceway on June 2.
You should come out!
