    Congrats to Brad the new owner of my former TTSaleen project!
    Brad made it to Dragging Rights today and made his first ever dragstrip pass in the car.

    1st pass - Left easy, lifted before 1,000 feet.
    On the brakes ran a 10.70 @ 107.

    2nd pass - Left easy, tires started hazing top of 2nd and 3rd gears.
    Banged out a 9.93 @ 148 mph on the exact same tuneup I ran at Darlington, SC 2 years ago! Pump gas only (93 octane) and 17 pounds max boost.

    Big SHOUT-OUT to Fastlane Motorsports for building such a bad ass combination that literally ANYONE can hop in and drive but still have the power to run like this one does!

    Awesome job guys!

    And before you ask................yes I miss it dearly!!!
    But it was really cool to be there to help him get the car ready, go over his mental checklist, get him in the waterbox, and film the event!

    My Mach 1 will probably never be that high caliber of horsepower!!!

    Of course you miss it, but at least it's with someone who loves it and is using it the way you intended!

    Crazy. It leaves so easy too, like pulling out of a 7-11. :)

    The car has a LOT left in it. If it was launched at WOT off the transbrake at 4,000rpm it would probably pull the tires and ride out.
    Unfortunately it only has 31 spline axles and a Tru-trac differential.
    The biggest issue is the lack of rollcage, not only for safety but for stiffening up the car and allowing all the power to be pushed to the tires.

    The new owner and I talked about it and he isn't planning anymore track adventures anytime soon.
    I strongly agreed on that line of thinking! Ha!
