    ok were are taking a couple of carts to Irwindale Race Way 1/8 drags..

    they run every thursday night... we spoke with them and they wont me to Tech them before they run... this is a NHRA legal track so im sure theres going to be some issues but we will find out....

    if we get to run ill take some pics and video.. cause i think this will be the first for carts down the track racing.... wish us luck [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If they are willing to let you come they must be wanting to see you run. May not be the first night but if there rules aren't way out there then hopefully you have a good chance to run. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    they are going to want arm restraint and got them into today and wasnt thinking that they need to go on racing lap belts .. but i have a rhino in the shop that we put belts on awhile so going to use his lap belts .... we work DJ safty and trying to have the owner Joe show up at the track with 4 points [​IMG] [​IMG]

    they might want a battery kill switch .. i dont think they are going to like that it doesnt have sides or side protection.. anyway ill be there and if we dont race we can watch some races and talk to a few people....

    went through tech and they let us run... but they gave us a list for the next time....

    need steel braided fuel lines
    4 point harness with arm restraints ( only had a lap belt with restraints)
    Snel Helmet full face
    firesuite jacket
    battery kill


    this was the first cart or rhino to race the strip

    first pass we 13.72 @ 41.83 very hard to stage not used to the brake and the power...



    they have invited us on the 28th of this month for an all day test and tune...

    Hey Randy looking good. Glad they let you run. You got some tweakin to go, but a good start. I pulled some of my bro's slips from last race. He goes about 300lbs running a unlifted 95 club car with 6:1 HS gears with 215/35/12 Duros. He runs 46-49 MPH 13.5-12.9 Running a 18 HP stock Vanguard with a Bandelaro cam and isky valve springs, No other mods. Not braggin just wanted to give you some comparison numbers. If your motors putting out 38 HP its not gettin to the wheels... YET. I know you been expermenting and I'm sure you'll get it. Do you get time slips at that track? That will help you dial that machine in. Let me know if I can help. [​IMG] [​IMG]
