Default finally went 7's (1/4) n/a

Been a long time coming lots of testing. Money spent. Blood. Cursing. Arugements. Fist fights but we finally accomplished the ultimate goal. Go 7s in the all motor class at milan dragway with a conventional headed combo. First ever and it's the quickest conventional headed all motor car in the country at 3125.

7.99 of the trailer. 7.96 after that. Then I got aggressive in the timing map and shook the tires to a 8.02 then a 7.94 first round elims. 7.97 2nd rd in a loss.

In car video from the 7.94

Not bad for a soon to be 25 year old.

I remember being at Norwalk in late October years ago on about a 40 degree day watching Manny Bunginga running 211 mph (or so, don't remember exact speed). Of course that car had a turbo big enough to vacuum a battleship. Still, very impressive in a stock wheel based car.
