Of the 8 cars, how many were running nitro and how many methanol?

.
They were all Nitro burners except Hemi Hunter which got down to low 7's on Methanol and Norm's Plan X which ran 6.85 on Methanol.
So your next goal is 6.84 or quicker to become the quickest British Built Methanol Slingshot :shock:

Ive been following the other FEDs with bated breath over the past 5 years lol. Alec was the last british built one on here. Vic Hammonds speed demon / Bob Hawkins Time Traveller 2 is a US car that has run a 7. Bob did run a 7 though in the Ex Classy Chassis car which is british built. Norms Two Much also ran into the 7's, so I think im actually the 11th to run a 7, and 5th fastest british built alcohol slingshot ever.

Well done on the 7 Dave.
Looking through some threads I think you correct in thinking your the 11th person to run a 7 in a British built slingshot.

Pretty sure that alec coe ran 7'50s in the slingshot that johhny hall and i built when he was racing ,i know he kept a log of every run ,at least 200runs ,his car was asteel chassis ,so a 7'50tag was all it had ,and of course it was a small block and shorty glide on methanol
