Mario, I will definitely retract my statement and offer you a personal
apology on the 12 second issue. I had actually indicated by my earlier post
that I was not actually sure and wanted someone to correct me if I was
wrong. You did just that. It is what and I had recalled and I was actually
wrong by over a tenth of a second. When it comes to BS, the 11.898 second ET
that you turned is nowhere near an 8.7 ET posted by the Killacycle in 2006.
In fact an 11.898 ET is not even close to the ET of a certain street legal
Datsun. I'll bet you would really like to know what it feels like to go that
quick in the quarter mile! Saying that Dennis failed to update his site,
which he claims he hasn't been to in over a year, is an utterly ridiculous
statement just from the fact that the year 2007 is clearly posted. You do
realize that this year is 2007, right! Dennis knew that Bill Dube blew away
his time in 2006. Are you going to also deny that Dennis was not aware of
this fact either. It was clearly posted on this forum to all to read and
Dennis monitors this forum daily. I just believe in furthering the sport of
EV drag racing and not supporting those who try to subvert it by diminishing
the achievements of others by posting outrageous and false claims on their
sites. For clarification, I have visited your site and enjoy what you have
written and I do not see any BS there. I used to live in Jerome and once
took our street rod to the top of Mingus Mountain and let it fly in neutral
all the way to Jerome, about seven miles. My passenger felt for sure he was
going to die on the hairpin turns but I reassured him by telling him, "don't
worry, I have never been killed before, not even once!" With the batteries
mounted low below the frame on either side and the wide sticky tires, the
light weight street rod felt like a go cart. Way too much fun and a slight
"Suck Amps EV Racing"
