BB/Altered National Record

Quickest & Fastest Altered in NZ
Meremere Dragway - 9th January, 2016
Ride on-board at The Rock FM Nitro Shootout 2016, Meremere Dragway. This run was a 6.309 second pass @ 216 mph.
The body is a little different than what you normally see on an Altered - it's a "Pro Mod" style '41 Willys Coupe that was imported from the States. It is the same body style that is commonly used/seen in the Pro Modified class. The front clip is removable and the rear half can hinge up "Funny Car style". The doors are fully usable (unlike other Funny Car bodies), plus there is also an escape hatch in the roof.
The chassis that is under the Willys Coupe body is an all chromoly Mark Williams Altered/Funny Car design that was built for us by Buck Engineering Chassiworks. It's 115" wheelbase to suit the Willys body. It has Hoosier tyres all around - 17.0/34.5-16 slicks, Weld Aluma Star 2.0 wheels, AutoMeter gauges, RPM Performance data logger, and Sparco onboard fire extinguisher system, it also features a Mark Williams Modular 9" Floater Rear End. With it's heavy duty 3.812" bore aluminium case, 40 spline steel milled spool, 4.56 gears, lightened discs with Mark Williams calipers, and one-piece axle.
Another run from The Rock FM Nitro Shootout 2016, Meremere Dragway. This run was a 6.301 second pass @ 215 mph.
