    Default Busa powered Jr Comp cars

    So there's been a couple of these things coming out the track lately. I've been helping out a bit with one them, and i'm absolutely infatuated with it. this particular car has bone stock busa motor, even down to the header. it uses an mtc slider hooked up to a live axle with 24.5 x 8 tires. it's been a best of 9.13 i believe.

    the more and more time i spend around it, the more things i want to do with it. it wouldn't take much to make one of these things flat haul ass. the actual nhra jr comp class is a bit of a joke at a 6.90 1/8 index. this stock motor car goes 5.70's with almost zero testing. they've been running a sportsman ET class and going ROUNDS. i think you could build a 7.80-7.90 bracket car out of one of these, and it would require almost zero maintenance.

    i want one!

    they look like big jr dragsters, regular dragsters would be gigantic jr dragsters

    I think 180" is way to long i was thinking more in the 140-150 range but don't know for sure only seen 1 up close and that was a few years ago

    Yeah those rigs are pretty neat. We had a guy that used to run our bracket points program in one of these. It had an old water cooled Gixxer 1100 motor in it and it was deadly consistant and pretty fast too.

    not comparing this ad to these dragsters but they have one on craigslist he says with a 18hp briggs it goes 135 in the 1/8 does that sound right plus he only wants 1600.00 for it that sounds cheap

    That's a nice looking chassis right there. I wonder how much a rolling chassis like that one costs?

    I have some busa engines - might be a good place to use one...

    Daniel, Mike O'Leary has been talking about putting one together too.

    A mild busa engine should easily run 8.90's, run it in Super Comp and pizz off the car guys!

    the guy sells them as turn key cars, and i believe they're around 16k with the busa power plant. he's based out of california somewhere, but i dont recall his company's name. like i mentioned before, he's a jr dragster guy, not a motorcycle guy, and theirs some things i would want different with the motor. apparently he's doing some things different with his newer cars, so maybe the things i dont like have been changed. i think a roller would cost around 12-13k.

    even to go a round or two in super comp would make those guys flip! i can't stand super comp racing...
