Sbutlers 1/4 mile video....TE-50 T3

A few people were rather skeptical about the 13.5 sec time sbutler did at eastern creek in his Venom Red TE-50 T3 with the only mods being a K&N and a Liverpool Zorst Fitted, ...and it was his first time ever at a drag meet .....so here is the video that proves it.

Re: Sbutlers 1/4 mile video....TE-50 T3

well, after the 25mins it took to save on dialup what an awesome video!

Steve that 2nd run was a pearler of a launch and had some quick shifts to get the 13.59

I also got a 13.59 last week, but with higher mph (and much slower launch), which goes to show that a decent launch like yours will go a long way to getting a great time, well done

I think his 0-60 ft time was like 1.9 secs.......the other TE-50 was shaynets car.

A work mates friend took his (completely stock)AU Pursuit ute to the creek last week and got a 14 flat first run, then a 13.9 on his second run:) Im begging him to transfer it to mpeg so we can all watch it:)

Cheers
Jim

Thanks Firefox for doing whatever you need to do to put that on there{to many buttens for me} Anyway thanks guys, It was all in the start thats for sure, the rest of the run is just sit there and steer it......
