You should be over 600 then. Could be 650. That's insane! But I like it.

I would love to see that video. What's it like going that fast for the first time? Fastest I've been in a car is a built dart with a detuned 440 to north of 500hp. Other than that my father inlaw has a 69' judge he let me take out once.

Well north of those numbers. I'm a SBC though, so I'm not sure how different it would handle with a BBC.
Is that BBC all iron (heads and all)?

Haspin is in Indiana. Not much in Ohio. I hear Harlan is a great place to wheel. Tons of rocks from what I've heard.

yes it is i cant afford aluminium maybe one day. the heads have had alot of work. my body is all fiberglass so the wieght isnt a big deal handles very well im hoping the frame against the torque so far it acts good but i havent put my foot in it yet. i do know it will blow the 38.5's up on pavement with little throttle if thats what you want to do.

my buddy has video of it or did have. well i like fast i got caught some years ago in my semi running 121 wasnt good. i like racing but its to drawn out to much waiting and i dont have the money to go as fast as i would like. the first 60' was a blast i was leaving off the transbreak at 3400 and shifting at 6000 i think it had some left in it. the motor has seen 7500 several times yes i put my money in the bottom end it can turn those kind of rpm the motor is very quick. what was cool was that i was faster than alot of alky burning race cars at the track and me on pump gas not the fastest by any means but there were several all out race cars slower

The frame should hold up ok, as long as it's in good shape. Dad and I have both been running a lot of HP through the stock frames for a number of years, and so far, no problem.
We actually weighed a couple CJ's quite a few years ago, and one of them still had the stock steel body (body was in excellent shape, no rust). The steel bodied Jeep actually weighed basically the same as all the fiberglass bodied CJ's did.
