Nic Case takes World's Fastest title with 160mph run!
 
Holy crap. He did 160 with a 2wd car (no name) and then 135 with a BL converted ntc3.

It was a Custom Works pan car.... I was contemplating entering but too much got in the way and I was going to use a modified pan car myself... I don't understand why some people are so stuck on the AWD TC's, they are not fast compared to a pan car except on an unprepared surface....

I heard the radar gun was being used improperly (panning). This led may have led to inconsistent and inaccurate speeds. The person running 160, backed it up with a 90+ run. Which one was right, we'll never know....

That is why real speed runs are timed (no radar guns) and they have to back up the run to within a certain percentage.... :batman:

"Panning" a Radar gun will NEVER give you a faster reading, only slower and not by much. I know radar well, I've ruined many, many, people's days! Hahahaha.........

It was a Custom Works Intimidator dirt oval 2 wheel drive car, not a pan car. The car was god awful fast trust me. His first 2-3 runs were with the converted NTC3 car starting with a 121 mph run and ending with a 134 mph run.

Ok, so it wasn't one of their Pan chassis's, it was a modified RC10 Buggy that did it.... :rolleyes:

it was his pan car that ran 160, his tc3 nitro/electric conversion ran 135.. his second 90mph slow run was a half speed whipe-out...

Aint no way in HeLL that it was with a dirt oval car. I am sure the origional post of an agressor pan car being correct.

The car was a Customworks Intimidator direct drive. It was not the Aggressor.

wagonman72 08-01-2006 11:21 PM

The only parts that in any way resemble Associated parts are the suspension pins. The Intimidator came out back when the RC-10 Graphite/Stealth were out, before even the B2. And yes it was a dirt oval car complete with foam tires! Sorry to burst your bubble.
