  1. bought a new '73 Chevy Nova, came with a 307 automatic. couple years later it had a 402 big block and 4 speed transplanted into it. no power steering or power brakes. no A/C either. not sure what top speed was on it but i did follow a friend who was going 135 on a 2 lane winding road , he was topped out but i was just getting warmed up.

    Thinking cap

    my problem on a big block chevy was floating the points not the valves since i had a solid lifter cam, went to a dual point distributor and could take it to 9000 rpm, drove it one night at 9 grand and 90 mph for 4 miles in first gear...still had the 2.78 gear rear end in it from when it had a automatic and small block. think i still have the timing light and dwell meter from the 70's
  3. did a google search and found this place about 30 miles from where i live http://www.indianheadplating.com/ http://www.indianheadplating.com/chrome-capabilities.html

    what kind of speed limiters would they put on an electric car? a VW Electric smashed the Pikes Peak hill climb record in 2018, not sure how they'd compete on a flat track https://www.engadget.com/2018/07/07/watch-vw-ev-pikes-peak-record-setting-run/

    what size rubber you got on it? my 8930 had 18.4x46 and 14.9 34 on the front....stopped by the dealer once when going by and had them dyno it...they ran it up to 225 hp.and quit, even at that point it wasnt smoking nor had it started to lose rpm's
