Skull has been absent for a while, which is a loss for all of us.

The two people I know that ran Predators, one had two on a tunnel ram, both eventually gave up.

I had one on a 406 SBC and was very unimpressed.

The only thing I ever heard about the predator was they were pretty good racing but not very good street wise. Was hoping for a good first hand review.

I have known of several being ran over the years. Yes they are better at the track, but I have seen some nice setups. There once was a t bucket from spring texas that ran two of em a sbc 6/71 blower and idled nice and low. He drove that car everywhere. Most I have been around idled to high for my liking. Also if I remember right sideways for street and facing forward for race.

Those were a staple with the early monster trucks. Many ran 2 on big blown motors early on. Jim

Yeah, others have been MIA a lot longer. Skull has always been a kinda drop in, drop out kinda guy, so maybe he's just been busy and not doing the computer stuff much right now.
