JRCOZY Ford Laser TX3 runs 11 flat
Since this video has been doing the rounds on Facebook I figured I'd chuck it up on here. Carl's Ford Laser TX3 (known as an Escort in the USA) dubbed JRCOZY runs a 1.8L Mazda motor with a supercharged Toyota Levin gearbox and puts down 380kw on E85 to the front treads (Mickey Thompsons in this case). It has run a best ET of 10.998 at 134mph, but is back this season with fresh ET Streets looking to get back into the 10's. As far as I know this is the quickest and fastest FWD Laser/Escort around, with faster being 4wd versions. Here he runs an 11 flat ET at the latest round of the Night Speed Drag Wars at Meremere Dragway in New Zealand, running as fast as you are allowed to go in the C2 bracket (turbo 2wd). Carl won the C2 class that night against a yellow R32 Skyline Video shot by me (Kris of Reflex Photography) and may not be used for any other purpose without permission from Reflex Photography Be sure to check out my Facebook page with more action from Meremere Dragway and other car events from the North Island of New Zealand https://www.facebook.com/reflex.photography.nz
