mini dragsters

Post by rusty » Tue Jun 10, 2008 12:26 am

Most are built by fathers etc but they are now so popular that there is a national std and also it has become a pre cursor to a lot of the major events nationally, aj is on my case at the moment to build one so we will have to see.
the motor starts life as 5 hp intek briggs and from there it is heavilly modified, portd and polished and balanced etc, in other words its blueprinted, std motor revs to approx 2800-3000 rpm a godzilla revs up to 8500 rpm.
In the states its even bigger what with mini sprint cars and raod racers etc, top of the heap in drags do the 1/8 mile in 8 secs flat which is quicker that most hsv holdens or gt falcons, on one wednesday night street meet i saw a mini dragster beat toyota soarer twin turbo
to the 1/8 mark so yeah they are quick.
