What we do for "fun"
 
Although it seems more like work than fun these days.
Todd Moyer owns both cars...he drives this one.

Lamar Swindoll drives this one.

We run a 2 car team with the ADRL in the Extreme 10.5 class.

Todd also owns and we get to play with, 3 X275 drag radial cars for local stuff.

You need some space for all that crap...so the cars travel in this plus it's a good spot to sleep. It's 96 feet long bumper to bumper.

That's me on the left when we were in Martin, Mi this year.

I get to spin wrenches on 2 of these. 644" billet NRC built big block Chevy with Precision turbos and a Rossler 2 speed with a Neal Chance titanium converter in it. The converters alone cost more than a new RCSB Express Ram. lol That's why I only play with them....they're a little outta my price range.

chefred112 11-23-2012 10:45 AM

chefred112 11-23-2012 10:47 AM

..I'm just kidding here but with that kind of setup you could at least afford an HD camera :)

GhostR1der 11-23-2012 12:10 PM

^^^ haha! I mean I know someone there has an iPhone 4 or newer. At least that's 720p if you hold it sideways.

They're a blast. Here's 2 of them....the turbo car in back was bought from Joel Greathouse in Kentucky....the one in front is a nitrous car bought locally. It's getting rebuilt now....drug the back bumper a few weeks ago and did some damage when it came down. http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...00312535_n.jpg This one was also bought from Joel. http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...33646051_n.jpg Todd is looking for a 4th car now. Here's a good shot under the clip of the Camaro. http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...62160160_n.jpg

What kind of numbers is that Camaro pulling?

UNBROKEN 11-28-2012 09:16 PM

High 3's at just over 200 mph in the 1/8th. The sanctioning body we've run with the past 5 years or so only does 1/8 mile racing. These cars honestly aren't safe in the 1/4. They're Outlaw style cars....they're just too light to be running that fast. The Vette is just over 2200 lbs....it just wouldn't stay on the ground. It actually trapped with the wheelie bars at one race this year....all 4 tires were off the ground. The wheelie bars tripped the lights at 216mph.
