It has been to the Redding drag strip 3 times. It is a fun, dependable, reliable car.
It easily, and consistently, breaks into the 10’s (best time for me was a 10.75). During the build we added wheelie bars (wheelie bars are included) but found out we did not need them due to the excellent design of the frame. It just hooks up and tracks straight without smoking the tires or wheel standing. It always makes me whoop through the traps. The car has won trophies and plaques at numerous car shows in the same class as $100,000 cars.
The 5-point seat belts are out of date for drag racing (must be changed every 2 yrs.)
Trans temp gauge needs to be connected to transmission.
