Hey Gary    go for a ride with Jerry     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAt8N-vH0gg      I believe he said he was shifting above 8 grand
Oh yeah!!  :)    Nice ride.. Unbelievable to get thru 1/4 mi trap that quick.. :)   I bet HIS adrenaline was running high too!  :)
He ain't bad power shifting that trans either..   I'd love to see a video of his tach during that run.. :)

(and probably a BIG reason that 302's blew.. missing POWER shift to 3rd..  :)

Dad used to shift above 8 grand---and it's still here , not without point bounce. Me 7800---lost art "no lift shifts' vey sweet sound in the car. Can't beat a full manual auto with a brake for consistency (and less parts breaking) Took a set of rear gears, 3rd gear, and a pressure plate for me to finally give in. A well prepped track and good slicks took there toll.

Find yourself a distributor with a 4 lobe cam (like the old Mallory Rev Pol) that I have..    no point bounce below 10k..  :)

Thanks, point bounce was a long time ago---car received a Unilite ,Promaster coil and Box in the late 80's ( the whole set up is now in a 38 rat rod pickup and still performing great) also a Rev Limiting Tac.( Sun still in the car)  CHP went through my original distributor last year. Plan on taking her for a jog once in a while---all out runs ,with the 302 anyway probably not in the future. Should perform fine.   Car did run it's best with the dual quads/Mallory. Never got an ET. Seat of the pants: 400 would have got it out of the hole.302 would have come around at the 1/8th and continued pulling it through the traps. Sorry Darrell ,we stepped all over your thread.

Couple of "Chatty Cathys" LOL.

Of course there have been a few "bolt ons" added to the 400 since it's days in the Camaro---apples and oranges!

This is the car the 302 called home for 15 years while it was in street form.
