We put asphalt track and skis on Jason Stoviak's f12 firecat project and went down to the strip for opening day. It was a last minute deal and we didn't have the gears require to go the whole 1/4 mile, but figured we could do some 1/8 mile testing and maybe still have enough to run a 1/4 mile number. There's a lot of really fast twins out there, and we wanted to be the first twin to go in the eights. After a few 1/8 mile blasts, we decided to hold it out past the 1000ft mark, and go for a 1/4 mile number. 8.905 at 140.55 was the result. 1/8 mile time was 5.748 at 130.17 with a 1.445 60ft. Best 1/8 mile for the day was a 5.667 at 131.67 with a 1.506 60ft.

First twin in the eights. Not motor only though. Best motor only twins are stone's and dead1daves D&D powered firecats in the 9.20's.
140mph not that great for the et and 1/8 mile mph(130). Need taller gears.

Good to here guys out on the TAR already here in the midwest. The right gears, a good track, and 100 hp hit of juice, should be somewhere in the low 8.8's maybe 8.7's. Keep us informed.

What ya think about DUNNIGAN'S 8.39 pass last week while testing down south. Not to shabby for an ALL MOTOR M.R.E. 1000 triple.

Nice job running those numbers. I wish we had some tracks opening soon. There are still mounds of ice in some parking lots around here.
