    Ford factory drag car 427 Fairlane

    A guy driving down a Maine road finds minutes apart, two very rare Fords, he buys them both for $1600. A good story: http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/classic-cars/rare-find-he-bought-this-ultrarare-r-code-427-powered-1967-ford-fairlane-xl500-twice/ar-BBFPCDp?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=ientp2

    Best Phone App For GPS Drag Racing Times?

    Need Help finding the best phone app to give me drag racing times (0-60, 1/4 mile, etc.) based on the GPS on the phone. This is for the 89 Vmax and My Mustang. I can get a tuner for the car to do it but it's $400.00 and leaves the bike out in the cold. The nearest 1/4 mile is 60 miles away, 1...

    Drag Racing Again - In Hungary!

    Tomorrow I'll start driving about 6 hours to get to the racetrack for another drag race weekend. Weather forecast is not the best, but as I keep checking, it's getting better. Finals on Monday. My personal best is 11.65 in the 1/4 mile.

    Final Drag Race This Year - Hungary

    Getting stoked for my final drag race this year - Friday and Saturday. The track only has 3 events per year, and the next one is while I'm on vacation. I removed the windscreen and added a cheap (larger) shift light. But this cheap shift light is not very accurate and once it comes on, and I...

    Fl drag & street bike not a VMax

    Pics of my friend's bike, almost ready for test & tune! It's a GS1150 'a bit bigger' than stock. The guy who does my widened VMax wheels made the extended swingarm, from scratch, note it's got a NOS bracket; and the engine headwork. A street bike, built for strip use. Lots of $$ parts on this...

    Drag Race Report - in Hungary + PICS

    Hey y'all, Had a TOTAL BLAST last weekend racing the big, bad V-Max at the track. I brought my son who raced his Honda CRM 125. He didn't make it through the eliminations, but I got SECOND PLACE. I'll save my embarrassment and not tell you how many were in my category. The final race was against...

    54 Days Until Drag Racing!

    I'm pretty stoked. I'm heading to the U.S. again soon (business trip change of plans). I purchased some COPs from Blaxmax and will bring those back to Hungary with me. I'll also be adding a new air filter, and that will be the extent of my pre-race maintenance. I'll be bringing my son with me...

    Drag Race Question - Reaction Time

    I saw a video today of a 2016 Camaro that cranked out a 10.6 in the 1/4 mile. That's pretty good, but it appeared to me that the driver was sleeping at the light with .912 reaction time. I made a comment about that on another forum, and someone replied that the reaction time has no effect on ET...

    Tips for Drag Racing Tuning Prep?

    I found a local place to rent a trailer to bring the V-Max to the drag strip 4.5 hours away. So this will allow me to do some tuning prior to going, without worrying about "streetability." 1. I have a custom VERY free-flowing exhaust, which is extremely loud. I understand the combination to use...

    Drag bar pics

    I'm looking for pictures of VMax's with drag bars, I've seen a few different ones. The ones I really want to see a picture of mounted are the bars with the 4 1/2" back sweep. Thanks guys

    looking at drag bars

    Hello to all, I want to replace the stock bars with some drag bars, its more a comfort thing but I do really like the way they look too! I found some that are 7/8" thick 30" wide with a 3" pullback no riser, how wide can you go with the stock cables? Thanks.

    Entering Drag Race - Hungary

    Here's the scoop... I raced my old '88 FJ1200 at a 1/4 mile track here in Hungary back in 2010 and 2011. Yes, I had nearly the slowest bike there. But that was maybe the most fun I've had since living in Hungary. They have different rules here. I am not a licensed racer, so I sign two release...

    Drag bars

    Put the new bike master drag bars on with my 13 yr old son this weekend, for $20 im very happy. Went on easy, don't hit the tank. Mirrors could use some stretching lol. I'm a 6' 4" tall rider and for me it's more comfortable and I believe easy to corner with. Ordered new grips but became...
