Quaker City Drag Strip 9-20-08
Charley and I went racing again. Here are pictures of a
couple of time trials we ran.
I didn't quite make it to the elimination rounds... well I made it but didn't get even a single run in... reason shown below.
Charley's first run... ran high 13's, didn't make it to the
100 mph club yet
Ran 11.869@ 115.98
Now this should be fun.
Someone is a little slow to stage ....
Charley makes the 100 mph club, and I run 11.818
Then it was time for eliminations... bracket racing.
The car sat for a long time and it was cooling off so I dialed in at 11.75
Was running an 03 Cobra that was dialed in at 12.30
Was at the line but had a problem on my launch.... it was ugly
Yep that was the front of my drive shaft !
This is the back half of the 2 piece drive shaft. It was in
bad shape too, I blew up the CV joint!
Here it is after removal.
It has now been replaced with a Dynotech single
piece aluminum driveshaft that is 30 pounds lighter and rated for 900 hp!
