On Friday 3rd December we made a last minute decision to take our Evo to attend Round 3 of the Night Speed Drag Wars series at Fram Autolite Dragway, Meremere.
This turned out to be a good decision as the car and driver are showing some real consistancy running a number of 10 second passes, including a new best time of 10.509 seconds at 219.85kph! This was with a fairly average 60ft time of 1.72 seconds.
The only problem we encountered was the car was hitting the rev limiter in 4th gear well before the finish line on every run. This is will mean we will have to up the rev limit and/or use a taller tyre. If we have to run a taller tyre we will probably make the switch to a slick tyre of some sort.
Stay tuned for more updates.
