Um, he has a wheelie bar so i would hope he's laying down 1.3 60' times or he's a chump. Also, his bar angle looked off to me, and its hard to tell, but it looks like he still has the stock shock. Shocks and wheelie bars are specifically disallowed, just like straps and wheelie bars. You have to solid strut it to be legal, or at least that is my understanding.

Yeah, the outlaw/shootout guys are in the 7s and 8s or faster all day long with no bar. And 144 is pretty sad, our 674 threw down almost 145 yesterday on a 9.52 pass....with plenty left on the table. Unless you are doing at least near the 8s in the quarter on a 14/Busa, you're pretty disappointing.

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

EDR Performance, because their fast is faster than everyone else's

This was just a Test-and-Tune... so it wasnt like it was the NHRA or anything.

The no bar and shock thing is a safety issue, not one that requires NHRA sanction. If you've ever seen one of those bar bike catch air and go over, you'll understand that its not something you want to be a part of. Improperly setting up and then launching on a shock can bend or even break the bar mounts.

Wow. Our track is sorry and that shit wouldnt get by here.... Just be careful taking advice from guys that do sketchy shit like that. And if you race brackets ever, dropping the dime is a sure fire way to go a round.
