150 feet in 4 seconds, huh? I'll have to try mine out, see what it does. Neat looking, but not a fan of the tiny wheels.

He did say the parachute worked.  Not sure it does much.

Okay, he said mid to low 4 seconds, so 4.5-4.2

I went and measured off 150 foot, and had my kid time me, best run was 5.3   That was pulling the tires in the air while launching.  But, that is without a tree(they use a drag tree), so could cut a couple tenth's off by getting a good reaction time on the light.

So best I could do is maybe 5 seconds, he's got a 1/2 second on me.  MUST GET MORE POWER!


Quick vid of me running 150 foot, can't see the markers with the camera.

Send it out to a tractor pulling engine company. They'll build it for 90hp+ I hear.

Ha! Then I would have to spend money. I'm pretty happy with the 20hp, and tranny isn't puking guts out, so going to stay with what I got. I can still smoke him on a race course or trail.
