NEW 1/4 MILE LSX RECORD!!!! The Adkins camp puts on a clinic with their LS powered bullet! Cant say how proud we are to be involved with this crew!
From Adkins Motorsports:
We now have the New 1/4 LS Record for ET and MPH
6.1148 @ 238.35 on a pass I pedaled early twice due to tire spin, 1/8 Mile time was only 4.09 193 wild ride and it was my fastest MPH ever, didn’t help stopping with only one chute blossoming.
These runs were all made on a 315 tire with not exactly the right rear gear for 1/4, power was clipped at high rpm with timing and we made it to 9625 RPM
On Friday we tested a new large MT Radial Pro slick without success after 5 hits, spinning on the line twice and at .6 .8 .9 we have up and out the tried and True 315 back on, then went 3.98 195 on only a 1.10 60ft this was our first 3 sec pass at Martin MI US131MSP
We got rained out Friday night and Sat morning and on our first pass we decided to go for the 1/4 Mile Record using the 315 Radial tire and we got it on our first attempt.
We decided to try one more time for the first LSX to the 5’s and the car was on the quickest pass so far tod weekend at the 60 and 330 but the front end was coming up and the car started drifting right, trying to salvage the run I lifted and hit right back in it a little too quick before the car got straight and I ended up taking out my first timing Block at the 1000 ft Mark
We definitely have a 5 sec capable car and will be trying again in 3 weeks at the 5th annual Import VS Domestic race at Martin June 8, 9 10
Racing into the quick 8 1/4 event where we will be attempting to compete with a small Radial tire against all big tire cars that have been high 5’s low 6’s
