Wonder what it weighs, could this be the 5.20 car?

Zap is the John Force of Top Doorslammer racing in Australia. To say that team knows how to go fast is the understatement of the centruy! Teaming up with Noonan and Bickle is going to be a power house team.

Zap has been 5.63 at 2700+lbs, with a D rotor at only 108%. I'd love to see him at outlaw weight with a C rotor at 128% in the 1/4!

Maybe.. We've had millionaires..even billionaires run in P/X.. I'm not convinced he's just gonna show up and dominate. No doubt they'll run good. Until the money goes away at least.



My best guess is he is helping develop the 4.9 engine to run back home..

He's won TEN CHAMPIONSHIPS and set numerous records. I don't think he's coming to be a wall flower. LOL Go Zap and team!!!

They could do it at SCSN Vegas.

That's a fair statement. It's a tall order to expect him to dominate with just 3 races to understand a completely new combo. I suspect he'll still go ok though. He has however always had a 10th or more on the competition here so I doubt he'll have that luxury on race day over there.

Again a P/X Screw (?), although apparently a high end one, reminds me of the dream team Manzo/Hossler ... will be interesting to see, how Zappia do against the US P/X Elite

Come on turbo guys, PLR Steve Petty, Jose, Carl please come back P/X racing and bring on some 102s in the game

Yeah SCSN -> 1/4, then against Team Carl Stevens and Jose with PLR and Petty on board, that would be a hell of a race. Wish really badly this would come true.
Would like to see again turbo crushing the screw on the 1/4

5.46 vs 5.47 isn't exactly what I call crushing, especially since that event was Frankie's first ever time running 1/4 mile with a screw.

hi Eddie i expected your answer

The turbo team on the other hand had much less experience in P/X style cars than Team Frankie Taylor - and these cars were basically P/X cars racing 1/4 mile.

As for crushing, ok, true, but i found it very impressing how brutal the backhalf of the turbo was, and how this gives - at least me - the impression Frankies screw freezed at the finish line, when the turbo "crushed" through the last meters so to say.

see here ->
@ 1.44 (wanted to link exact minutes:seconds but didn't work)
