I haven't raced on asphalt yet. Hopefully this summer.

My Mach Z's engine is somewhat apart waiting for the cylinders and head to come back to me.

Should be about 190hp when I get it back together. I would be running at New England dragway in Epping NH.

I found a guy who will sell me a drag track for 100.00!!! He says he only has about 30 passes on it!!!!!

I have been running since 1998 and my current sled went 10.40 @125 last year and should be quicker this year. I'll find out in 2 weeks.

Polaris 650 guy. I did run my rx1 at the Miramichi Dragway last summer. It's alot of fun. The best time for me was 11.10 at 115. The track I bought was worn out, right to the canvas on the edges. 60 footers suffered 1.58 was the very best.
Once last year their was to guys from the island one with a tcat and the other with a storm. They invited me to come to the island to race but I did'nt make it. Good lads. I also got to bye another rx1, I wrote mine off last week. My buddy's got a turbo'ed rx1 he wants to sell, if I can get the right price. That shoud be good for high 9's or low 10's. How many sleds would show up to race at osyter bed each time?

I bet you boys have fun. We have a blast on the MSRF ice circut, but it's too cold.

Asphalt is similar to ice, except it's bracket racing. what fun it must be w00t

Hey 1XR, those two guys you met on the Island I know them and they have helped me out ALOT!! It depends on the week-end at Oyster Bed, but I have seen up to 30 bikes/sleds. I am now in Fredericton, hope to run at Miramichi this year-might see you there!! A couple of us are trying to put together a Bike/Sled week-end at oyster bed around august this year, will let you know if we can get organized!!

Now its race ported and a little lighter plus 10.5" track alot less rolling weight. Let us know how you do this summer as it goes.

All right you guys I'm ready to convert to asphalt. I was just curios where all of you buy your equipment from. I have a 700 mxz that i've been grass dragging and doing radar runs with, but the races are far and few between, and I have a 1/4 mile drag strip 30 min from the house. Any information or tips would be greatly appreiated. If any one has any decent used skis or tracks forsale let me know.
Thanks, Andy SWRules

Andy, there are lots of used tracks around. If you buy new then get the narrow 10.5 wide track. Add wheels between the slide rails and don't run any on the outside with either track.
As far as skiis go. You can make your own. 3 1/2 flat aluminum for the sides and put idlers wheels in for your wheels or look for an auto parts store that carries the DARCOR caster wheels part # W-PLE-404. They are a bearing wheel that are made for asphalt shiis. They are $50CAN each here. 4 wheels and some alum and you have brand new skiis.

good luck
