I think he's hard pressed to get off the line harder lol. The car breaks into total traction loss and he power skidded the whole track on one pass. Ill see if i have the footage somewhere.
Have to remember its not mini tubbed and still runs a borg warner diff.

---------- Post added 18-09-12 at 20:19 ----------

Found the footage but i cant seem to save it. Therefore upload it. It was sent from Iphone to Email and i cant save it to upload to youtube. Someone can pm me and ill email it to you to post up.

Yea tyres are pretty old now, last meet it did 1.40 60ft.
Pity it hit the boost cut for a split second in that run, Hense the 149mph.
Run after that broke traction,went 9.5@155mph

Couldnt get it to hook up after that as the track prep deterates.


I was pretty shocked to see 9.000 couldnt have got that much better. Lol
