There seems to be something about Lime Green paint that lets it slip through the air faster than most cars. Aside from the bright paint color, Chris Little's 1988 coupe wields 347 inches of Ford power backed by a Performance Automatic Powerglide. He used this combination to set the pace in BFGoodrich Drag Radials with a track-scorching 8.98 at 157 mph pass. The nearest competitor was Spence Hart, who qualified second with a 9.37 ET. Little, who is also the 2001 Drag Radial champ, usedconsistent 8-second runs and a little juice from his Wilson Pro Flow nitrous system to pick apart the Drag Radial contingent, and would eventually pair up with Hart in the final. In the cool night air, Chris's LX left the tree with a .504 reaction time, and there was no looking back. At the top end, it was Little with an 8.91 to Spence Hart's 9.42. With class restrictions ranging from cubic-inch limits to a single power adder and D.O.T. radial tires, it's amazing these cars run as fast as they do.
