Part 1. - Havoc.
The Summer Nationals is always a good and enjoyable no-nonsense sportsman meeting.
Together with some great sportsman racing we always have a few goodies thrown in for good measure and this year was no different with the Glassup Bubblegum nitro nostalgia Capri making good progress and the return of the Havoc altered which now has the 6.0sec motor from Chaos between the rails.
Scott Barnes and the other 2 lads have been working hard getting the car ready to have a proper shot of the visiting American's at Dragstalgia.
After a couple of decent checkout passes and with the motor running sweet Nick pushed the car to a wicked 6.59@174mph 1000ft pass, which was not only magic to watch but also bodes well for what promises to be the best drag meeting of 2016, Dragstalgia.
Well done all 3 of the team.

Strange that the frame that Youtube has grabbed from the video I shot of Havoc (above) is nearly identical as the image I shot with my camera in my other hand. :shock:

Havoc.

Actually the nitro % was 86, but for all of us, as it has been so long since being close to the infamous motor, e.g. a whole winter, we forgot how it makes ones eyes water. As Nick said, in a recent Eurodragster article we all need to use our masks....-:)

The motor is in good and capable hands, but needs a touch more purple showing, methinks......

Nick told me he drained the 86% and put 90 in but whats 4% amongst friends :)

Havoc:

Hi Jon, always good to see you too.
I was referring to the first warm up on the Saturday, when the fumes caught us all by surprise, I think the 90% only went in on the Sunday... -:)
Re the upcoming Dragstalgia I have suggested they have plenty of tie-wraps and Velcro to keep it all together... I will be using pampers on the start line.....
