We did run our car in Feb, ran a career best speed of 127.14 MPH in the 1/8th @ Sunshine Dragway in Clearwater, FL. Then we lost our Sponsor, well actually all their checks bounced :roll: Got a couple deals in-the-works, looks like we'll be back out in December, which will be good, 'cause I have the need for speed !! :mrgreen:

We ran our car for the first time this year in TNT @ Lakeland Sept 27th (No video) But we got a baseline tune-up, and went to the BilletProof Drags on Oct 20th @ Lakeland, FL. We had a blast, and ran a 5.83 @ 120 MPH !! Great video of that event >> http://youtu.be/SRBIE_9Lw3s


Couple pics from BilletProof >>
