Noonan National @ Mirimachi Dragway

After going to the carshow in Fredericton on Thursday I got the itch to do some racing. So, instead of taking the risk of speeding on the highway and getting a ticket I decided to head up to Mirimachi with Brian, Jared and Patty and try and improve my times from last October.



I was happy with my first pass down the strip. A respectable 12.8@113 with a 2.2 60ft on street tires. However, after that it was all down hill(no pun intended to the supposed slope at Mirimachi dragstrip). I couldn't get traction to save my life because they would off set me out of the grove. My 60ft times were ranging from 2.5-2.7. And for the first time since I had owned the Cobra I ran a 14 second pass



After many frustrating passes the street tires were removed and the car sat as you see it in the pictures below untill I got some donor drag radials.




Fortunately I didn't have to look far. Jared, the good guy that he is, lent me a set of his MT et street radials. My very first pass I went 12.4@115 with a 1.9 60ft time launching at 3500 and walking the clutch out. Soon after I made my best pass of 12.14@117. Faith in the Cobra had been restored. With the drag radials I was consistantly running between 12.2 and 12.4.





Late on Saturday night I planned to try and break into the 11's but a series of miss shifts(3rd to 2nd) left me very discouraged and worried about my engine. However, I did the same thing 3-4 more times that weekend and the car held together. Definately built Ford tough!



My Cobra also got whored out this weekend. Jared and Brian took their respected turns with her. Jared ran a 12.4 I believe and Brian just came short of besting my time with a 12.2 pass.



If I learned anything this weekend it's if you go to the track come prepared. Meaning, save yourself the frustration and use drag radials or slicks. Also, 4 comes after 3 not 2. So don't try and put the the shifter their at 180kph.



Here are some other random pics from the weekend.



Yes, it's mid afternoon and no Brian hadn't started drinking yet.







Big thanks to Brian,Jared, and Patty for making the weekend so much fun and helping get my car deep into the 12's. Also thanks to JP, Dave and Tyler for lending us tools when we needed them. See everyone in the fall.
