Congrats! I think auto's are the only way to go for drag raceing. The few who have made the switch always report positive results. Looks like you have access to a "loose dragstrip". This neck 'o the woods it's a once a year event where they lighten up on the rules. A friend went 10.03/144 in his 2x turbo roadster last year. You guys are nuts (in a good way).
They call me the breeze, I keep blowin' down the road. Ain't got me nobody, don't carry me no load. Lynyrd Skynyrd
Thanks for posting the video, that was great. If tech lets you run to 10.0 you are set up perfect now. Your mph is just under the 135 limit and your ET is just over 10 with a great 60 ft time. Don't change a thing or they will kick you off. Congrats.
Get that reaction time down to .050 and no one will will be able to beat you. Way to go. Back in the day we had a 72 Pinto wagon with 289 and 4 speed. We went to a C4 with a line lock and became quicker and more consistent on reaction time and ET.

Can't tell you too much about the internals. A buddy of mine who does all my performance work built it. He started with a mid seventies C4 from a van (stronger cases), gutted it, loaded it up with race parts, did some mods to the valve body, wish I saw him do it actually.
Continental Converter - 3500 stall. Since I don't have a trans brake, it only footbrakes to 2200 (best 60ft to date is 1.44, 10.008 ET 134mph).

I can leave it drive and it will still shift automatically for regular crusing.
25.6 inch tall tire (17 inch rims)
turns 2800-3000 on the freeway
I opted for the lighter tranny instead of the AOD but the overdrive would be nice sometimes.
Future plans: bigger blower, taller gears, should balance out : )
