Hard tail Veloceraptor X rail!!!!!

Made some eighth mile hits tonight.  My local track has problems with rail stopping so I only made 1/8th mile hits.  As it says above this is a non wheely bar hard tail rail.  Tires are 1 1/16 by 300 wide.

1st pass:  60: .117  660:620

2nd pass:  60: .115  660: 570

3rd pass:  60:  .112  660: 520

Tires are too small.  they are brand new and where just starting to come in.  I am using an old top fuel DRS rail back half which are very small.  so the biggest pinion I can fit is an 11 tooth.  It is gear at 11/48.  I am going to try to switch to 1 3/16 by 400 and see if this helps.  I am hoping to have this rail run in the 7'S in the 1/4!  Which i will do back flips if it does!  The chassis is .o72 rails and the chassis from guide post to center of axle is 11 3/4".

Would it be possible to have a forum for Dragsters(Rails) so as to keep all the info together

No back flips.  Is was worried about the motor tearing the car apart but it is smoooooooth and straight as a "RAIL" on the launch!  You should see it skidding after dumping!  Those mags took over and it came skidding to the finish line after the 1/8 mile hit.  Will get pics up later today!

Good job stretch. Mine are in the .520 range also. The quickest it's been is a .517. I ran on a new 1000' track last night. It went .685 @ 59mph. That was cool. I am running 1.062x.500 on mine. the 1000' track only had 13' for the shut down. They stopped fine with the .500 tires.

Thanks, Dvan. I was thinking about a dragster section but didn't know if we needed a dedicated dragster section. Looks like we do. That is just about all I run any more, since I have several tracks with in about 50 miles from me. This is great.

That is great that you dont have to go too far to race.  I have one track 20 minutes away but the program does not have a whole lot of racers.  Otherwise I have to drive 2 1/2 hours +  to get to a track!  Sucks!
