'67 Z28 At Cecil County
« on: September 15, 2009, 02:25:50 AM »
Thought the CRG folks might like this.  Shot three weeks ago at Cecil County on Sunday morning.  2200 feet corrected altitude.  I hope to get the D/Stock record in the Fall.  Stock 302 Z28 engine blue printed, 3200 lbs.  Best video I have so far thanks to Kerry Stanley.  Kerry also did all the sheet metal work on the car.  Fenders have not fallen off yet due to the wheel stands.........LOL

That's a blast from the past.  Craig will air another Camaro spot on Motorweek Oct 10, 2009.  They used my 67 Z28 survivor car.

Hey Jerry have you ever thought of doing a video on the 67-68 Z cars as far as what is correct and what to look for in one of these cars. Great shots of the 67 car at the drags.

Maybe when I retire.  Right now, I have zero free time.  Was only home two days in the last three weeks.  And I'm leaving for the Charlotte NHRA National Event race in the AM.  If anyone is in the area, stop by at the track.  We run class eliminations on Friday.

Hey Jerry that was pretty sweet. I am not complaining by any means, but I wonder why the camera operator didn't zoom in on the car as it went down the track? Again, not complaining. Just would have been nice to see the finish and the time on the light board. Just hit the zoom button as ya go. Just a thought as things got pretty small near the middle and end. To hard to see.....Danny

That video was shot was a digital camera and no zoom.  I am trying to get a high quality video at one of these events, and will do so soon.  Only reason I posted this was because it shows the car working at the starting line with wheels up on 9" tires.

The snap, crackle, and pop of the 302 at idle was worth the whole video! Can't wait to show my 10 year son.

I have pulled out all the stops for the Dutch Classic next week.  I have to run 10.53 to set the new D/Stock record.  Car has been a best of 10.64 so far.  With the improvements we made on the dyno and freshen up, and good weather and barometer, I have a good shot.

I put 10.53 ET for 3200Lbs car in the drag calculater and it says will need 542 hp

that's a lot of power from a 302

good luck Jerry

Yup, Jerry is going to have to give the 302 a little more than half throttle...    ;D    ;D    ;D

My back up engine went 10.64 last year at 124 mph.  And I did not have the suspension dialed in like I do now.  Could only come out at 5600 rpm, now I can come out as high as 6600 rpm. 

That was weighing in at 3190 in 200 Ft of corrected altitude.  That engine on the dyno made 474 hp.  The engine in the car now is better than the one I took out.  See how that ET from last year calulates to the HP and weight of the car.

the first calculator didn't have the mph plug in because I don't know it for the 10.53 ET
here is a different calculater that has the MPH plug in. It is more accurate to use MPH


10.73 ET 123MPH 3190LBS = 487HP (from video)

10.64 ET 124MPH 3190LBS = 499HP

10.53 ET 126MPH 3200LBS = 521HP  (estimated MPH)

Went 124.08 as the best mph for the new car.  Car in the 10.50's would be in the 124-126 mph range.  For me, maybe 125 mph.

Just found out that J. Duzac went 10.55 this morning at the NHRA Reynolds, GA points race.  Another 67 302 car but not a real Z28.  He is the fastest D/Stick car as of now.  Also heard that the air was very good this morning for qualifiying.
