Drag Racing
Send me a PM with your e-mail address.

I have a fairly good document that I was going to use as a basis to put on a clinic at IRCHA, but other issues got in the way.

Kinda
When we flew gas machines, you did kinda need to have a dedicated machine, just to get the HP.

My last glow drag machine was ported at 180°, crank was trumpeted, and had the carb bore enlarged.

Today, you just program in the torque you want through your CC ICE control, and get the best of both worlds.

The machine I ran this year was basically a T-Rex 700 with the KDE conversion.

Flew it during the week, and for drags, just flipped it to Idle 2.

IRCHA
If we get the chance, maybe IRCHA will make it an official event again in 2011.

Speed and drags kinda died out for a while, but there are a few who are working at getting it back in.
