Video: Six Seconds On A Wheelie Bar!

All the planning, working and talking stops when you finally mash the pedal and see the fruits of your labor. That might be installing a new camshaft, completely restoring a car, or reworking the suspension for maximum performance. No matter how much trash you talk on your buddy, the truth will be told once the green light flashes or green flag drops.

The competition never even had a chance.

The competition never even had a chance.

This video is of Chris Alston Jr. showing off his driving skills and more importantly, all his own Chris Alston Chassisworks suspension. A camera is mounted to the wheelie bar, which offers a different view than you’d normally see on a car. Chris lights up the tires and gets them hot for the lap. Backing up, he readies himself for the run.

The car inches forward slowly, then like a gun shot he’s off and down the track. The car slides a little to the middle but he’s able to keep it between the wall and lines. In the blink of an eye, he’s pulling the shoots after another successful run. This lap was completed in 6.70 seconds at 210 miles per hour. That’s one quick ride.

What’s great is the wheelie bar view in the video. Usually the perspective is inside the car or standing trackside. This shows you how big of a difference the wheelie bar really makes in keep the nose down and car moving forward. It also shows how violent the take off is on a car of this caliber, not something anybody could hop in and drive!

Chute is out, another successful run.
