ECTA Racers at Speedweek
« on: August 26, 2016, 01:38:38 PM »
I was wondering how many ECTA cars and bikes were at Speedweek. Also list their car numbers and times.
No trailer ran 135mph at the World of Speed 2011 see you in 2012 in Ohio and back at Bonneville at the world of speed going for the 150club 1979 Firebird T/A White Black Hood. Ck out YOU TUBE. KERRY AT BONNEVILLE. Didn't  make 2012,2013,2014. ECTA in Ohio 2012 trans went out and 2013 fuel problems . Still trans and fuel problems. Finally all looks good. Ready to drive (no trailer) 1500 miles to Bonneville and It's cancelled. NEXT YEAR. SEPT. ECTA RAN 144 MPH. GETTING BETTER

 The Ron's Hobby Shop Special was there. A rear engine modified roadster flathead Ford V-8 powered blown on gas. Ron senior Bumped the gas record from 139 to 192.448 seniors top speed 192.9. Ron junior drove the car classed for fuel bumped record from 158 to 178 juniors top speed 185.9. All will be in Wilmington next month.   :cheers:
   
Working in the shop I use the 'F' word a lot. No not that word these words Focus and Finish go Fast and Flathead Ford!

Putting 53+ mph on the blown gas record, you should be ashamed of yourself showing everybody up like that Ron! :evil: :-D

 I usually start in 2nd with a push for this reason. 1st is totally useless. And as the 1-2 shifter arm broke (several times after welding) on a qualifying pass and we didn't have time to try to fix it, I started in 3rd (with bigger push) on the return run. Missed new record by about .5mph.  :( The way my week went. Qualified 3 times, couldn't back up any of them by about the same mph.
