well done Alec and team for getting the Shy Talker slingshot into the 7's at the Hot Rod Drags last Sunday, that's 8 British built slingshots under 8 secs now, who's gonna be #9? :D

Well done Alec and the rest of the team, I know what it meant for you to join the Seven second club. The car looked awesome on launch with plenty of wrinkle on the slicks. How long do you think it will take for you to get up to the next level......Six seconds. :D
Very pleased that you told me the car went straight as a string. It really is the best looking digger out there at the moment. :D

Cheers Guys, was great fun and there is some more there yet.

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

If anyone has any videos of Tom's drive on Sunday approx 3:30 would be greatly appreciated.

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.
