My names Scott im from Christchurch New Zealand and this is my Soarer Drag car project I started early 2015 when I had a fiberglass body made up from a 90s toyota soarer
In August 20015 I started building a chassis in our garage at home and fitted it out with the standard Powerglide and Ford nine inch full floating Diff
For a powerplant im running a Twin Turbo 1UZ-FE 4.0L. Then engine is completely stock mechanical wise but the list of engine accessories include twin BIAGIO turbos spec unknown, aeroflow mechanical fuel pump, Siemens 212PPH fuel injectors on Methanol, 2UZ COPS, LINK G4 Thunder ECU, Stock Lower intake manifold with a "box" top intake manifold and 90mm Accufab throttle body.
April 2016 I made my first outing to the track and almost wrote the car off on its first pass when we had a clearance problem in the diff and locked the rear end across the finish line at 80+ MPH.
Three race meetings later and a string of 10sec passes finally at our meeting late Jan we managed to run 9.8 off the trailer and a 9.79 on a slippery last pass with plenty more to come as we are still working through the tune with limited track time here.
At this stage the goal is to try and claim the current record for my class which stands at 9.5 at the moment. Trying to achieve this on a standard unopened 1UZ then will assemble a forged short block and will aim for 7 sec 1/4 mile times
