Hight had laid back headers. Also, most of the time their not going to tell you if it had a hole out late in the run or hurt a piston.I saw that. It's a misprint. I dunno....if he did run 341 they had that thing really zinging past the 660. Robert Hight's 3.79/338 record pass numbers were 3.07/294; Tasca's, 3.12/291. That's a 50mph gain from 660 to 1000.
I hope it's legit or else discarded quickly. I'm sure nobody including Tasca wants to speculate about the legitimacy from now on.
In Tasca's defense, I'd say the blocks, cylinder heads and blowers have improved since then.
