I have a similar build to a dude on Youtube and I SURRENDER. HOLY CRAP. First off...before you call me a wimp. I'm 6'2" and muscular. I'm no *****. BUT....after seeing this...here's me:

First night out with Caltracs on the '67 Mustang - YouTube

BUT...(i was N/A)...WATCH this dude hammer these gears like he's swatting flies. It's unreal. Most of you put your car in "D"....some of us have to 'shake hands'.

1966 Mustang 1.41 60ft Drag Racing - YouTube

no2Mike...Toldya I've been on these forums for a long time....I STILL blame you for my spending spree last night. I want to pull my front tires off the ground with a four speed Top-loader.

DAMN YOU, SIR!!!!! I spent all day working on my '67. I'm missing my 1 gallon nitrous entrichment tank and then I will ATTEMPT to sniff your 60 foot time. I have every piece to the puzzle except for stand alone gas tank. After watching your videos, I actually measured the 60 foot time on my diveway. The good news is, I have a 200 ft drive way. The BAD news...you have my car's ass kicked by .25 seconds on the 60. "Is that all?? LOL!!!!" I know what Mike is thinking...let's bring on the OTHER 1750 feet. :(

Hey Eric! Thanks for the kudos! There's a guy in Ohio who I want to grow up to be like. His name is Gary Moore! He has a stick shift mustang that may be in the 8's by now... He uses a fogger nitrous system and 8.2" engine! I wanted to be just like him back in the late 80's when his car was in the 10's and mine was in the 13's. :)

Back then, he had an 8200 rpm chip in the rev limiter and two nitrous plates stacked on top of each other! He was the MAN! lol Big time street racer back then. Had some of the first aftermarket heads for a small block ford... The Alan Root heads, that were later sold by Ford as the J302. They had a dual bolt pattern exhaust flange and a wide exhaust port that required special headers to not block part off. His car had a Dana 60 with 4.56 gears and fairly large tires. He was even lucky enough to get on Pass Time! Car is dark blue with a white interior and a snorkle scoop.

Keep chipping away at it, don't burn yourself out, and have fun with it!
I LOVE your enthusiasm!

You really need to run straight race gas with the bottle. Don't think you can get away with pump gas for the engine, and only add race gas through the nitrous system. You need to run straight race fuel. I even go through the trouble of pumping ALL of the pump gas out, before replacing it with race gas when using the bottle.

My nitrous is engaged using the throttle switch, which makes things much easier to manage. That's what gives it the torque to launch like that! ;)

Good Luck!

PS... A few more fun videos!

Man...just looking at the still shots of you guys launching is keeping me motivated!! I've had this car since I was a teenager in the Navy back in 1994. I've always done some work on it and then parked it back in the garage. She sat parked for several years back in the late 90's into the 2000s. She's not getting parked until I can lift at least ONE tire this time. As a matter of fact...for the first time in nearly 20 years, I have all of my lights working. Hell, I even fixed my horn and wipers. The car's wiring had been rigged so many different times. What a party that was trying to figure out what went where!! Last Saturday night I made the mistake of cashing a 12 pack while I was working on the 'Stang and then I came in to look at some youtube videos. A couple of tequila shots later, I come across n2oMike's videos and went nuts!!! Ended up going on a drunken spending spree on E-bay at 4 AM trying to get my nitrous kit all pieced together! I'm oohhh so close!!
