Yet another thing TechWorks is good for…

This week, one of our members is using the shop to install a new engine in his daughter’s junior dragster. Very cool! Some interesting facts:

  • Chassis: 2009 Martin Components Jr. Dragster
  • Engine (2012): Briggs Raptor 3 (13 cu in) with 28mm Mikuni Carb
  • Best time (2012): 12.002s @ 52mph (1/8th mile)
  • New Engine: Blockzilla 3×3 (21 cu in) with 40mm Mikuni Carb
  • Expected time: 9s @ 70mph
  • Fuel: Methanol
  • Driver: Rachel (age 11)
