The Louisville Slugger Part 3: 2012 ZX-14R Dragbike.com Project ‘Regular Guys’

Update from 06/09/12:

Terron Babbage gets another shot on the Louisville Slugger during the NHDRO event at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Horrible conditions… BETTER result this time! Terron Babbage on Slugger during NHDRO Indy 2012. Terron Babbage heating the tire…
except at Indy this time.
Still stock wheelbase.

 

More people, more pressure – no problem. Terron is cracking off 8 second runs (he’s dialed 8.90 in street ET eliminations)
in the heat of the day.
We removed one tooth from the rear
(now a 39 tooth) and added an air shifter from Terron’s debut on John Stewart’s ‘Louisville Slugger’ ZX-14R from their first outing at Edgewater. The conditions are horrible, but that’s not slowing this bunch from going fast or having a BLAST!
