Australian Pro Street N/A 6 Second barrier broken

Today, Trick and Mansweto Racing reached a long standing goal by making a six second N/A pass in Pro Street trim. The record breaking run was 6.972 @ 198.55

The car is a 1969 (English) Capri and the power is from a 694ci Ford Hemi. The engine makes in excess of 1550hp.

Our Pro Street unblown rules stipulate a minimum weight of 2500lb, iron block with stock deck height and back half chassis.

Here's the pass:

It shook pretty hard on that run. But even on good runs, it gets your attention. The chassis isn't exactly optimised to cope with nearly 1600hp

That means it probably has more in it!

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

Looked and sounded great! Don't see to many of the newer style Roberts B441 hemi heads in action, hard to beat the power they make!
