    Australian FWD pulsar trap speed record

    Does anyone know the Australian street FWD Pulsar Trap speed record?

    I know Tipsi ran 130mph some years ago,

    Does anyone know if he has ever run faster?
    Or if anyone else has?

    Thanks guys

    I know there's this Vlad bloke who has gone 130mph, but that's the fastest I know of personally.
    Still faster than Carly's 180sx. Life goals.

    I dont know the trap speeds, but theres a few pulsars running 11s at the moment.

    Bread ran 11.39 (apparently)
    and theres that blue sedan in NSW with the 11sec plates.

    I didn't know Omega ran an 11 yet. He's had the plates for a while and when we last spoke he hadn't run one (but neither had I at the time!).

    Plus there's me that ran 11.9@125.

    Who is bread? Might be this guy? (sorry for the poor photo, only had a potato on me)

    So the story so far about ringers is that in his pulsar he ran mid 11s and a 120+mph pass all while having backed off before he got to the end??????

    I think we better ask the man himself as this is a bit of a strange pass

    I'm thinking it's still going to be tipsi. Never heard of anyone running faster. Even in the diagon ally rumour mill I've heard nothing.

    He says he didn't lift off because he was on my back for years that I should have been running 11s ages ago. I think he just pulled a bull**** launch . Anyway here's mention of Tipsi running 130+ and Ringers' 11.7@120: https://web.archive.org/web/20090803...pulsar.org.au/

    That's exactly what I want to find out as I am about to set my car up for the quarter mile,
    I need to know what time and speed needs to be beat, without a specific goal it becomes a silly exercise

    Not necessarily. It takes a lot of time and effort to make that sort of power, then it has to be reliable for long enough to get it to the track, and then the track reveals a few problems that didn't appear on the dyno/street. So after a few set backs and ludicrous $$$ input (for a Pulsar) I doubt that many could be arsed continuing and choose another direction.

    It's only loonies like Tipsi and Vlad who have kahoonies to build 130MPH Pulsars
