(That’s a mid 7 second ¼ pass) I raced this car most of this year in the local Heads Up class (KOTH), so it has one true race season to it. The car is set up ready to go fast and straight.

TTT


yesterday this car went 8.0@152 in the 1/4


I lifted some where close to 900 feet 6.67sec in the run I lifted - we had 20+mph cross winds yesterday for the GMHTP deal and with it being up forsale I didn't want to push it really hard - so I turned the boost down, shifted it at 7100rpm and took some timing out and it still ran 5.10 to the 1/8th... I truely think this car has a high 7.50ish number in it.




yea I have a new project sort of =)




thanks

I didn't know you could make that sort of power on an off center motor and have it live.
Guess that shows how much I know:eek:
I know better now:)

It would cert. with very little work at a capable chassis shop. I just haven't needed to do it or it would have already been done. Where I have been racing they haven't really been an ass about it so I never took it east to get the sticker. I actually had some extra bars put in to make the 25.1C cert. and then they changed it from 25.1C to D - I am sure it would pass.




thanks,

Scott,

So the car has 25.1C Certification???
The car with a little help should meet the 25.1D and the new 25-2 Spec???

Thanks in advance and sorry to be picky!

no problem at all - no it does not have a 25 sticker - I never needed it.


but I will gladly have it certified when you bring me the cash...

:D

If it hasn't been certified, you will have to add the new "Kidney Bar" that will run down the left side of the drivers seat diagonally. Then you should be 25:1D.
