I have a friend (drag120 on this board) who drag races a 2.5 on a 16' Seebold tunnel with a non-shifting lower. He has been told that he will have to convert to a motor that will shift for upcoming races. He is NOT happy. Here's a pic of the lower

Look familiar? We did this in 1984...... before I became obsolete.

Curious.....what kind of speed/acceleration difference (Vs the standard 300x sportmaster lower) would we be talking about in a Skater28/Spectre30 type setup IF you were able to bolt those up?

Purely hypothetical

Inquiring minds......

Actually you could bolt those up to 300X's with very little changes, you can buy a 15" midsection from Mad EFI http://www.madefi.com/midsec.htm
that you can bolt a 3.0 litre powerhead on and a 2.5 gearcase. Just have to lower the jackplates on your Spectre.
