Getting ready for New England!

We’re getting the spare motor ready for the NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional race in Epping, New Hampshire this weekend. We’ll be making two qualifying runs on Friday and eliminations begin Saturday. If you’re in the area, come on out!

Testing Success

We had a very successful test session yesterday at Atco Raceway. We made some great progress with our AEM Series 2 EMS system in conjunction with the new AEM AQ-1 Data Logger. With all the additional data logging channels we were able to capture enough information on a single pass to make changes that previously could have taken several passes. On just the second pass out yesterday, we were able to get the trap speed up to 182 MPH in the scorching heat. After that pass my dad and I decided it was a good opportunity for me to work on my cross grade NHRA license. I stepped in and was able to make a 7.45 and a 7.66 pass in the car. What a rush! Previously, the fastest I had gone in the quarter mile was a 9.5 at 149 MPH. Nothing like skipping the 8’s and going deep into the 7’s! I need to thank AEM for all their help with the car to get us ready for our next race at New England Dragway. I also need to thank the rest of the people that help us out tremendously with this car, Borg Warner Turbos, Machined Concepts, DV/DT Fab, Fuel Injector Clinic, SparkTech, Kiggly Racing and CP Pistons. See everyone in at New England Dragway on July 22nd and 23rd. –Tony

We’re at Cecil County Dragway for the Lucas Oil Divisional race. We just made our best pass ever, 7.18 at 185! We’re still at a very conservative boost, the car is making great power!
