Drag Racing at the local 1/8th Mile Track


Recommended Posts

I went to Houston Motorsports Park on Friday with a friend that owns a Firebird Formula, set up for the 1/8th mile. We just went for a little test-n-tune. other than the motorcycles there, his car was one of the fastest on the track that night. here's his setup:


stock bottom end

MTI custom ported heads and cam

FAST intake

150-175 shot nitrous

Turbo 400 transmission

Ford 9" rear end

Mickey Thompson ET drag tires

Weld Racing wheels

custom roll cage

Kirkey racing seat

the list goes on...


his fastest time of the night was a 6.53 @ 105 mph

105mph in the 1/8 is pretty quick.


yeah, i forgot to mention he has a line lock for doing burnouts to warm up the tires, and a trans brake to rev the engine up before takeoff. the engine has about 400 hp without nitrous, and what impressed me is he's able to get the front wheels off the ground when he takes off!

Good looking car. Runs well. Sounds like you guys had a good time!


yeah that was the first time i've been out at the track in a couple years. i ran my camaro in Dec 2009 up in Tulsa, ran a 12.23 @ 113 on street tires.


next time, i'm going to have to talk him into letting me drive it down the track once or twice :xfingers:
