Not mine, but cool anyway!
The guy that owned this sand dragster, used a chrome molly frame, so it was light weight and strong. Then he dropped a 1978 Kawasaki 900cc engine in it. Which had a factory "red line" of 13,500 rpm. Changed out the pistons to make it an 1100cc and ran it on alcohol. He kept the direct chain drive with universal joints to the wheels and gas shocks. He utilized a single stick shifter to the original Kawasaki transmission, a foot gas pedal and a single disc brake on the axle itself. He pulled it to the starting line with a 4-wheeler that had a battery on the rear wrack for starting it on the line. It held just enough alcohol fuel for 1 pass. Bald sand tires in the front on a swing-arm suspension and a single skid wheelie bar on the back.
This was an amazing build for 1985!!!
He'd run it up to about 11K, drop the clutch and shoot roostertails of dirt all the way down the strip....and do it in 2.90 seconds.
Sand drags are 300 ft. or 100 yards....so, he was traveling approx. 100 ft./per second. Incredible to watch him "zip" by on a pass!
