New best this weekend

Post  Copperhead on October 23rd 2017, 10:30 am

Attended a private track rental at Mountain Park Dragway (Clay-City, KY) yesterday,..in hopes of a new personal best,...

Well,...
I got it,....in both N/A ,..... AND,....on the spray.

Went
5.87 @117 / 9.26 @142,....N/A on Radials,......
5.72 @121 / 8.99 @147,....(100 shot) on Radials,...hitting the button just after the 60'

Probably would've went a little faster,....BUT,...I was bouncing off the limiter at the end. Unfortunately,...I had the damn thing set too low. Suspect

This is off the footbrake,....as the track wasn't good enough to use the Trans-brake with the smaller tires.

I couldn't be more pleased with my Ol' Tank,.... considering this thing has the aerodynamic qualities of a brick,....AND,...how much it weighs. (about 3800 w/ me in it)

Couldn't have done it w/o the Jet-Boat Bob powerplant under the hood.
Sumbitch was a Hammer !!
