Just wondered about the following:

What was the best time/speed for Tee Rat MK1 when it ran injection?

What was the best time/speed for Tee Rat MK1 when it was blown? ( I understand it never ran above 200mph? Was it 197mph?)

What was the best time/speed for Tee Rat MK2? ( Was it slower than the MK 1 version?)

Thanks Alvin

Tee-Rat 2 is on the cover and featured in the Feb '76 Drag Racer Mag. It says that to date it had run a best of 7.57 198mph which I guess must have been it's best as the Stones went on to run Stardust in '76.

Tee-Rat 2 didn't come out till half way through '75 and I recon if they'd continued running it in '76 they would have improved those times somewhat... maybe a six at 200+

Here's Tee Rat in July 1972.
That's Tender Trap in the background which was fitted with a V6 at the time.
