    I can't seem to open the the video from my phone, but I assume that y'all are talking about Jeff Beck's 7 Deadly Sins Coupe. There was no damage to the car at all. If I remember right, his time was a little over 10 sec. May have been a 10.13, but his average times that day was 9.76. Here is a video that Theresa, his girlfriend, put together combining our in car camera along with the outside footage we found on YouTube. Make sure you watch it all the way through. Enjoy...

    Thanks for the kind words, nothing hurt, hit the rev limiter a bit at the top of first gear ( usually have it up a notch. The car normally runs in the 9.60's at 139 mph but the big wheelies tend to kill ET, was a tad bit aggressive on clutch and RPM at launch but oh well! Sure was fun! Theresa was kinda brownin her britches a bit on the sidelines lol!

    I'm the girlfriend of 4speedman. "Mr. Wheelie" at the HAMB 2011. Let's clarify....there was offically NO browning of my britches, however, I did cup my hands to my mouth while I watched in suspended horror as my man's car thrusted upwards for what seemed an eternity. I personally don't understand the thrill of propelling forward (and in Jeff's case, upwards) at headspinning speeds. But to see the smile on his face at the end of his passes is worth the momentary missing heartbeats I experience. It's all good baby! ;)

    We stood her upright at about 12 O'clock a week ago Saturday at Thunder Valley, bent the front axle coming down this time, but we have her fixed and ready for Tulsa Nitro Nationals this coming weekend!

    I'm guessing a set of wheelie bars may be installed soon?

    Don't ya just hate when that happens?:eek: Ya know it's gonna get expensive in a few

    That was a great video. We need to get an East vs West, South or North or something going. Kinda like the old days. Track vs track?

    I don't know if it is the size of the track or the HAMB just limited the amount of racers. I wanted to go to the HAMB drags but it said it was closed...full:(
    Sure looked like a great time. I said before the MO people know how to put on a race. Wentzville was a blast.

    Maybe when the new track opens?

    Tulsa Nitro Nationals? I'm jealous.
  20. Wow... great way to start my morning.
