Impressive for sure, but isn't calling a 315/60 MT drag radial a "street tire" kind of like calling a Howitzer a "gun"....or calling the USS Iowa a "boat".

I know I'm nitpicking here, but that is one hell of a "street tire"... LOL
Well, I tried to put "tires that are deemed legal for use on public streets by the United States Department of Transportation" in the thread title, but it wouldn't fit.


well it is DOT approved
Exactly.


Awe come on guys don't pick on poor Sharad, he just finished his corespondents course in over embellished advertising, next class is writing greeting cards and nursery rhymes, can't wait to see what he comes up with for lifetime warranty...LOL... Maybe something like this:
Money's tight and time are hard but these parts come with a warranty card, if I spam and if I holla all the parts for my car wont even cost me a dollar!
Thanks Dave. I'm gonna use that! :)


Now that is funny! There is a warranty? :eeek:
Yes, as a matter of fact, all UPR Products carry a lifetime guarantee!


Where can I find more info on the car. A build thread or something would be great.
There is no build thread. I'll try to do a web-only feature on the car sometime this summer. I don't know many of the specifics, but I can tell you it's a 430" ProLine SBF with twin PT88s. Here is a picture of the engine:




I drove my car all over with the M/T drag radials they are a great sticky tire for the street. And DOT legal dont see the problem with what he said. I agree dont need the hard sale. But a 7 sec drag radial car is no joke.
Exactly. Here are two of my daily drivers from the past three years (notice the street tires):






they should slap a 275 and get #### done!
I agree, but I think he's more interested in Limited Street and Outlaw Radial. Regardless, my car wears a set of 275s, and I'd like to try a little True Street and/or X275. Hopefully the "first startup" will be next week.


Impressive..........

He still ain't catching Wolfe/Nelson.
:) That reminds me of something my dad told me a long time ago. He said, "Sharad, you can't please everybody. Jesus Himself could walk on water in front of a crowd and there would still be that one guy that would say 'pshhhh. I'm not impressed. Look, his feet got wet!'" To be fair, at least you said "Impressive..." I was thinking more about the tone that this whole thread took. Everyone's a critic. Meanwhile I WISH my car was running 7.80s!!!

Anyway, Jeremy's not running Kevin Fiscus times, but he ever claimed to be. However, as I understand it, the combo is still pretty new and he's running a lot less boost than the car is capable of. I guess we'll see how it all plays out. I just think it's cool that he's out there racing his car, putting in work, conducting R&D from the driver's seat. :salute:

I am truly impressed, it took us several years to go 7.30's on a W tire and now we can't even compete running those times! I'll never own a 7 second car, I wasn't trying to be a smart ass, it's hard to believe guys are running the number on a radial now. Wolfe IS the baddest man on a radial though.

BTW, I need some more pics of the red coupe with the pony R's! My wife has one just like it and is waiting on her rear wheels to show up. That's a beautiful coupe you have (both of them)!

Wolfe was the baddest man on a radial. The orange car was sold to an 83 year old man :salute:

I think in october they are going to be flying, Berry trapped 190 in the eight in February, and Fiscus was in the .30's

I don't think it is, but I'll get all of the info and do a mini-feature on it soon.

Yeah, I feel the same way. To me, 7-second ETs are respectable regardless of how you get there! Anyway, ask and you shall receive!

This is when I first put it back together, before the Pony Rs and UPR suspension:



Here's when I installed the Pony Rs & UPR suspension:













Here's an outtake from a photo shoot I did for a feature article:



Just a quickie at church one morning:

The gentelmens name is Willard, Jason Lee of PTP will be tuning the car and may take on the driving duty at the SGMP race, on a side note Jason went 7.54 on 275 "radial" with a 360ci engine and a little F1r blower

That's him! The old fella ain't no stranger to speed, although the orange car is a little more than he's used too. J Lee is a bad dude for sure!
