2  Racing/Off-Roading / Drag Racing / Fastest EVER SS/B AMX - Adkins goes 8.72!

NHRA legal Super Stock / B ’69 AMX today in round 2 of qualifying at NHRA D1 Virginia Motorsport Park. Ran 8.81 in Q1 with headwind on 04/20/2018. No headwind ran 8.72 @ 150.98 MPH! Both passes he was #2 qualifier.  
Note he was only .400 slower than the fastest SS/AH (’68 Hemi Dart / Barracuda only class).
WAY TO GO!!!
8.72 is -1.19 under the index. A run of -1.20 under will get instant HP (and added weight) per NHRA AHFS factoring system. So he dodged a bullet on that fast pass.

Adkins is #2 qualifier with an 8.72! at Virginia Motorsports Park today. This is NHRA Division 1 race. D/A was as good as -400. Razor pump spring has been trimmed and still produces 98# oil pressure at finish line which is WAY to much. Call to Razor on Monday. He’s already had to replace one distributor gear.  
But 8.72...wow! That’s only .400 slower than the fastest SS/AH Hemi cars that are there.

You can get a stepped washer to use with the Edelbrock heads to install them on an earlier block with 7/16 bolts, same approach should work with the later factory heads.

OK...latest update from the NASCAR shop. Prior align boring / honing of the main bearing tunnel was F’D UP! Boring bar was cocked ever so slightly....there was more material off of the #5 upper and more material off the #1 lower. There was NO bearing crush on #5 main bearing.  
Block is in process of being align honed with a FAA approved CNC boring tool. Yea...let’s get it right!  
That’s all I am waiting for.  
 
Same NASCAR shop (Leading Edge, Phoenix AZ) found my son’s Modular Ford block was align bored “to the high side” , meaning, the boring bar favored the lower caps. They ordered +.001” bearings and that took care of the issue.  
 
So...two blocks done at two shops and both messed up on align hone. Guess I need to buy a ball micrometer. Glad I found a shop that identified the problem(s)!

Received replacement rod of correct weight...actually I didn’t even open the box. Brought it to shop today and said “get it done!”  
 
Spoke to another ’70 AMX 390 Super Stock owner a couple of times this week. Eugene Chipps in WV. Man, sure is a lot of AMX racers over there! His is with an automatic trans which places him in SS/HA. He has a CM back-half car. Apparently his engine stays together....LOL!
