I'm not into drag racing myself (though I was at Willowbank when "Pommie Pete" Allen did the first 7 second pass in Australia), but I wonder how many forum users are aware of some of the amazing technological feats the drag race community has performed over the years? I'm thinking of Boris Murray, who ran a bike with two supercharged Triumph engines in the late 1960's. And T C Christensen who ran a similar sort of bike with two Norton engines in the mid 1970's. Then there was the legendary Russ Collins, the first man to build a 4-into-1 exhaust for a Japanese 4 cylinder engine. He thought that if two was good, 3 was better so he built a drag bike with 3 supercharged Honda 750/4 engines. This was the first bike to go under 7 seconds for the quarter in the world and it nearly killed Collins when it spat him off at over 170 MILES per hour (272 km/h) at Bowling Green Kentucky. After months of recuperation in a wheelchair, Collins came back with a new bike with a V8 engine made from two Honda 750/4 engines joined on a common crankcase. It became the first bike to exceed 200 mph (320 km/h) At the same time as this Denco Engineering was building (with Boris Murray's help) a Kawasaki drag bike powered by 3 highly modified 750/3 two stroke engines. This bike has survived and is now in Melbourne and still runs! Amazing figures considering we are talking about 30 years ago. I invite forum members to research this topic for themselves and see what daring things were being done before many of them were born!!!
