Round 1:  Lost.  We were too far off our dial-in.  Ran an 8.773 on and 8.72 dial.  Try again tomorrow.

 

Sun. September 21:

Practices:  8.762 (again!) at 149.70 mph, 8.816 at 153.29 mph with a big side wind.  Then a 2h delay due to problems with the 1/4 mile timers.  Switching to 1/8 mile racing!

bullet

Round 1:  Lost, 1/8 mile.  Picked a time that was too quick, couldn't do it. 

 

Thanks to @dougtaylor16, pit crew and data analyst, and to @MyMacs, @PepsiCanada, Universal Cycle, Praxair, and Weaves Industries for their ongoing support.

September 13 & 14

We were at the MHDRA Dragstrip (in Medicine Hat, AB) for a 2-day drag racing event.

 

Sat. September 13:

Practice times:  8.875, 8.867, and 8.890

bullet

Round 1:  Got lucky.  Slow 8.997 on an 8.88 dial.  We're jetted too rich for afternoon air.  Won because opponent broke out (quicker than her dial).

bullet

Round 2:  Lost on double break-out.  Both ran too quick, he broke out less.  I crossed the finish line .0009 before him!  Try again tomorrow.  Thanks, Doug!

 

Sun. September 14:
Practice times:  8.840, 8.905, 8.866.  Best mph 147.07.  Sunny day.

bullet

Round 1:  Here's Doug analyzing why we lost .  Broke out.  8.867 on an 8.90 dial.  Going home now.

 

Thanks to @dougtaylor16, pit crew and data analyst, and to @MyMacs, @PepsiCanada, Universal Cycle, Praxair, and Weaves Industries for their ongoing support.

July 27

We were at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, AB for a drag racing event.  Follow on web cam at here.

 

Suspension changes and the new wheelie bar haven't had much impact.

 

bullet

Round 1:  Lost. :-(  Going home.  Unexplainable bad 60' time resulted in a horrible 8.968 on an 8.87 dial.  That's drag racing!

 

Many thanks again to Doug, pit crew and data analyst!

June 14 & 15

We were at the MHDRA Dragstrip (in Medicine Hat, AB) for a 2-day drag racing event.

 

Sat. June 14:

Rained out - no racing today.  :-(

 

Sun. June 15:

Today there will be two race days crammed into one, the A-race, and the B-race, to make up for the rain-out yesterday.

Two qualifying passes with good 60' times, but a bit greasy after that.  ETs of 8.927 and 8.972.

bullet

A-race 1:  Won!  :-)  8.944 on an 8.94 dial!  Opponent shut down on the starting line.  Next round is the first of the B-race.

bullet

B-race 1:  Won!  :-)  8.982 on an 8.94 dial.  Fender race to the finish.  Now onto 2nd A-race.

bullet

A-race 2:  Won!  :-)  Opponent red-lit.  We ran 8.966 on an 8.94 dial.  Next is 2nd round in the B-race.

bullet

B-race 2:  Lost against a low-7-second dragster.  :-(  We both broke out, less for him.  He finished 0.12 second before us.  Next is round 3 in A.

bullet

A-race 3:  Lost with an embarrassing reaction time (I was in Hawaii). Done! :-(

 

Many thanks to Doug, pit crew and data analyst!

bullet

Round 1:  Won!  We were up against a really fast Camaro.  Ran an 8.859 on an 8.84 dial.  MPH was down at 142.78 due to a quick stabl on the brakes at the end.

bullet

Round 2:  Won again!  Opponent out of shap at mid-track.  Ran 8.889 at 146.98 MPH on an 8.83 dial.  Weak-ish 60' tie of 1.29.  On to the semi-finals!

bullet

bullet

Semi-Finals:  Got a bye.  Going to the finals!

Sun. June 8:

It's a beautiful day for racing!  Two qualifying runs were good, 8.838 and 8.860.

bullet

Round 1:  Won!  :-)  Opponent was a 10 second Vega.  Caught him way before the finish and got on the rakes to prevent a break-out.  On to round 2.

bullet

Round 2:  Lost to a '49 Fiat Topolino.  Good reation .020 second, but missed the dial (8.902 on an 8.85 dial).  The Mac's Motorsports roadster is going home :-(
