An acquaintance just sent me this picture, taken in the parking lot of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration outside Boulder, CO:

Look ma, no front brakes.

 

Wow, didn't notice that! For racing sidecar rigs like that, do they put a brake on the third wheel?

It's a drag racer. It has a fat rear tire and a wing.

Top fuel?

A drag racing Airhead with the added weight of a side hack?

Quarter mile must be in the high teens at 65mph.

That's Yugo fast.

If I had to guess, it's a Bonneville Salt lakes "SC" class racer.

Passenger foot rests suggest riding flat on your belly.

That's also on a $250 Harbor Freight trailer.

Low budget racing, very cool.

I'm thinking it isn't much for seat comfort either.

Ironically that "seat" is probably more comfortable than the stock nut-buster seat that came on my RT! :rofl:

Must weigh an awful lot, to have to use an electric winch to get it on that itty trailer. I think I'll do that to the GT, but with a comfy seat. Who wants to be my monkey?

Headed to NHIS (former Bryar Motorsport PK) today. Know someone on the historic racing circuit that races one. Its a hoot watching them drift into the corners.
