I keep seeing his aborted runs pop up once in awhile on youtube.
I was wondering if it ever ran a 4 second pass or even a semi decent full hit??

He is getting closer each time he goes out with it. I believe the last time at Ozark a month or so ago he made it to 300-350 feet.

Doing something nobody else has done before is tough. The fact that it is a real deal TF engine, plus trying to get the clutch to not be too aggressive is a battle. They finally figured out how to get fuel in it fast enough to not overheat the clutch. The fuel tank is too small to make a burnout and full pass. They were stopping after the burnout and pouring a jug of fuel in with a funnel. Now they have a fast fill cap like Indy cars. When he backs up from the burnout they throw 5 gallons more in it in a few seconds instead of a half minute. Lots of obstacles doing what they are doing. Not to mention that they can't just hot lap it to try things. He has had it at our track a few times.

Didn't that P/M guy get the TAD combination to work in his car,
but had to finally give up when NHRA did everything in their power to screw him over!!!

If Scott ever gets to the point where he is able to hold the loud pedal down for the duration of a pass, whether it be 660ft or 1320ft, say goodbye to every door car record currently in the books.

I think I saw a few months ago that he ripped it pretty long through the 1/8 and went a 3.30 or 3.50 something. No idea how true or accurate that is though.
