A few runs from Shakespeare County Raceway.
PAT 1 ran a very impressive 14.5 sec 1/4 at 96.51 MPH with a very steady
launch, Also managed 95.71 MPH, 93.98 MPH and 93.07 MPH Runs, Really close
to our 100MPH target, A nice hard launch should do it for us. The new
addition of an air shifter seemed to be far better than the previous paddle
shift set up and the addition of wheelie bars proved to work
in our favour, Its not as spectacular for the audience but we need them to
try break 100 MPH. Got to say a massive thank you to everyone that was at
the NSRA Hot Rod Drags, the attention and the reaction the van got was
amazing, When we started to build it I never thought in a million years it
would get this sort of reaction, and then the NSRA Hot Rod Drags Dirty
Dozen trophy just topped the whole weekend off.

Turbo Maverick Sleeper Outruns Drag Car
Josh Dillon's '73 Maverick Grabber doesn't look like it should run mid 6's
in the eighth mile, but it does! And outruns lots of full on drag cars.
Josh has driven this car on several road trips, and constantly beats on it.
The car looks rough, and even sounds sort of rough, but has a 75mm turbo that makes all the difference. On this
pass, the car made 12 pounds of Boost and runs a 6.62 at 105 miles per hour in
the eighth mile. The rough exterior and stock steel wheels make this
Maverick a killer sleeper!
The car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock block and stock crank. The
heads are stock castings that Josh ported at home. turbo is a Borg Warner S475, and Josh built every
piece of the turbo setup on a budget.
Transmission is a C6 automatic with stock hard parts and a Dacco torque
converter. Rear end is still the stock 8-inch!!!!
