I will be brining a 429 ls7 to the inline class. There was a build thread on here about it back before speedtalk went down. I will obviously be changing some things to make it competitive (the competition rpm range is lower than I originally intended). I should be ready for the first dyno session in a few weeks to get a baseline and get an idea of where I stand and what we need to work on. Good luck everyone.
What hood will you be running?

Something that will enable the use of a factory intake manifold and reduce my chances of overheating. :D

Any other first time entrants out there who like a certain engine platform...?

Randy, what do you think it will take to win the inline class this year?

Really, I have no clue. Guessing it would be somewhere over 1,600 points

If I can nearly match what I did last year with the C3 Ford, I will be happy but, I don't think I will get there.

https://www.facebook.com/RaceEngineChallenge/ looks like the competition just got stiffer for those competing.

I certainly don't envision things that way ... if the contest was full of "wanna-be's" maybe.

From the FB post, it looks like DV is merely a guest speaker.

No, he’s also signed up as a competitor.
Let me again take this opportunity to say the week of September 16th in Charlotte is going to be
a HP jamboree with engines being run on the dyno, seminars going on and mingling with the
engine builders and their engines. It just might be sensory overload for a gear head.
A list of the speakers and admission pricing will be posted in the next coming weeks. Stay tuned.

Well that certainly would not include Dave Vizerd it would appear that his participation in this event has made people nervous but after he wins he will be teaching how so competing is not in vain for everyone there///

What people do you mean who are nervous?
I don't think you are trying to make a joke but, you're really funny. :lol:

Why would you limt the engine to just one carb
If as said many street motors DO run 2 carbs.
The latest Holley/Edelbrock intake manifolds for carbs, for modern
Engines like the LS and the new Hemi use 2 4 bbl carbs.
In both single plane and dual plane type.
Yet are not tunnel rams.

Especially if as promoted here that 2x4 carbs has no power advantage over a single 4 bbl carb.
Why not let the 2x4 carb combos run. Wether on a dedicated dual quad manifold or 2 x4's on a adapter, on a single 4 bbl manifold. Let em run. Let the power "chips" fall where they may. Especially since the $$$ smart money $$$ is on the single 4 bbl engine being king.

I think you need to read the rules for the Race Engine Challenge on our web site: section 106 and 107.
