John Force a Cheater? (You Decide) U.S. Nationals 2009
A verbal exchange with Tony Pedregon in which Force had to be restrained
overshadowed his daughter beating Hight in the final to become the first
woman to win a U.S. Nationals title in Funny Car.
In the semifinals, with Hight needing to beat Force to knock Cruz Pedregon
out of the 10th spot in the Countdown, Force smoked his tires midway
through the run as Hight pulled away. After Tony Pedregon lost to Force
Hood in the second semifinal, he walked past Force and accused him of
losing on purpose.
"I saw the ladder. I knew if Force raced Robert what would happen," Tony
Pedregon said. "I raced with John for eight years. I know what they do. I
made some comments and it got a little exciting there. But I didn't say
anything that wasn't true.
"It's not just because it was Cruz. I would say the same thing if it was
anybody and John set up his car to lose. I understand the business. It's a
tough position John was in. But it's dirty in horse racing. It's dirty in
boxing. I'm not going to sit here and watch it and not say anything."

Traxxas John Force Funny Car Launch 18t pinion gear
testing the new 18t pinion gear launch, seemed to get better low end
traction at around 60% launch control on the dial, with the stock 14t
pinion it would have spun the tires and flipped over. topped out at 54.8
mph w the 18 t the 14 t was 52 mph
Traxxas X0-1 vs a Holden V8 Maloo ute in a Drag race
What would you get if you put a Traxxas X0-1 on a drag strip with a V8 UTE?
We put our money down to find out!
Vote for HAYLEY on the CHIKO Chick CONTEST here
When I did the math it looked like the XO-1 could do the quarter mile
(433m) in 12 seconds and the ute does it in 11.5seconds so it looked on
paper at least like a reasonable race.
However on the day the track compound was a week old and was shiny and
slippery at the start line. It was due to be resurfaced hours from when we
made our video. What do they say about best laid plans?
We would have even settled for a result over a half the track! So anyway
this is all we got. Despite all that for a split second it looked as if the
Traxxas was capable of taking the lead in the first 100 meters.
We haven't ruled out doing this again, maybe Traxass could post us some
different tires! :)

Traxxas NHRA Funny Car... So Easy a 5 Year Old Can Run It!
My 5 year old son learning to run the Traxxas 1/8 Dragster. He's got the
controls and driving modes mastered, but tends to oversteer a lot because
he is used to his daily driver which is an emaxx on 4s. Steering on the
emaxx is optional since it pretty much runs over or through anything in its
He has taken a liking to this new Funny car in a big way, so we will keep
honing his skills. He's a very quick learner, so i'm sure he'll be putting
down some respectable speeds in no time.
