The XTF ETrecord belongs to Jeff Nasier with a 4.075
The MPH record belongs to Todd Moyer at 193.88

Glidden ran a 4.079 Sorry about your luck. Nice research, but you're wrong

ADRL WORLD RECORDS

4.079 secs: Billy Glidden (05/23/09)
187.63 mph: Todd Moyer (03/07/09)

FAST FACT: Glidden has lowered the E.T. record at each of the last three races; Moyer increased his own speed record by 7.18 mph at the 2009 season opener in Houston

Unless they haven't updated their site very recently, what does this say ^

BTW name calling is so juvenile. Did you say you are 12 or 13?

Whats it really matter,its all great racing and very close.

the cool thing is Glidden is doing it with ALOT less!!(400cube,single 4,nitrous)

i would surely hope the other guys run what he does or better.they all have 700 to 800 cube nitrous setups OR big blocks with turbos.these other cars make in excess of 2000hp and they cant run any faster than Glidden????

So how much is BG spraying? Does he get a weight break? I think it's all relative. Isn't the tire still the limiting factor? IDK.

However, Glidden has been a 4.04 but didn't back it up. But others were right there that night.
Whether or not you back something up has no bearing on whether it actually happened or not. Even if others run just as fast or slightly faster they still haven't done anything since they have almost twice the motor he has.

I was merely pointing out the Glidden held the record in the ADRL Extreme 10.5.

Oh well, win 5, lose 1 race. Big deal. Knowing Glidden, he will more than make up for it later in the year. He is still way ahead in the points.

There is no weight minimum or cubic inch limit in the Extreme 10.5 class.

A point I have been making all along. The pro-Chevrolet people will come up with every excuse they can to try and explain why Glidden is winning. They do not want to admit it might have something to do with a FORD.

Back in the 80s, they said Bob was using nitrous excuse. When Billy ran Pro-5.0 in the NMRA and similar classes in other sanction bodies where power adders were allowed, they were all bitching about his car being too light even though it fit the rules for what he had.

Now what's their excuse?

He is dominating in a class where there is no weight minimum, no cubic inch maximum, and he is doing it with half the cubes and carburators.

Can't weight to see what they try next. Yoy can bet your bank they are already trying to figure a way to get him out of Extreme 10.5 as we speak.

Actually, it does have a bearing on whether or not it happened.


See, if you race a car that has a Chevrolet bowtie somewhere on it, you only have to make one pass for it to count. But, if it's a Ford, it has to be multiple passes before it counts. :lol:

I'm not pro-chevy, or pro-ford for that matter.. I'm pro-power, and the most cost effective way I can get to an ET goal, under a set of rules for a class I run.

The "pro-ford/pro-chevy" guys get all wrapped around the axle about all this stuff is what makes me laugh... Do yo think for a second that if your boy thought he would run faster with something else under the hood it wouldn't be there because it wasn't a ford.. You're kidding yourself. Glidden is a racer, and a damn good one. If he choose to do it with another platform, he'd do just as well because he eats/sleeps/#####$ this stuff.

I don't care, I'm a radial racer, and that's what I follow, and the fastest man there runs a chevy, #2 runs a ford, and I don't see anyone really doing much better than the others. But the big common factor with a lot of them is the mustang platform. I would say the best damn stock suspension platform ever...

You swingers can keep waxing on about Glidden and his wonder sb, but the writing is on the wall, the others are getting the power to the ground and that doesn't bode will for Glidden.

I was talking with my buddy who's had a good look at Glidden's GTO, he was saying the thing doesn't have a radiator, has had bars cut out, and has some trick titanium stuff put to it to get the weight down.

All I have to say is wait until mobley's XTF car comes around... it's all over! Again, I have a good source, the 3000lb car went 4.09/195! Just sick..

Glidden would run faster if he used a bigger motor. I'm sure the old Boss hemi his dad used in pro-stock would do really well in that class. Add nitrous to it and he would have been running consistant 3s along time ago.

But Glidden is smarter than that. He wants to continue racing without getting banned from the class. He runs just fast enough to make his point. He will win a few, then back off and lose a couple. You can't dominate with a Ford outright because all the other non-ford racers will bitch, whine, and even refuse to race at some point. We have seen this happen multiple times. One local round track racer that runs the only Ford will lead the race until the last few laps, then back off and win 2nd place. Experience has taught him this. When you show up to a race and all the other racers in your class load their cars up in protest, then you know you've gone to far. That's the kind of idiots some of the pro chevrolet people are. Their blind loyalty won't allow them to swap to a Ford, so they act like a scorned 6 year old stomping their feet while bitching and whining because they can't get their way

What's stopping the others in the class from doing this?

He would have already don't kid yourself. Bigger motor=more weight. He's found his sweet spot and it works for him right now.

Race without getting banned?!?!?!? You've got to be kidding me. lol He walked away from the other classes because they wouldn't let him race lite. HE was the one bitching... He found a place were he can race and not worry about anything.
BTW, who is this "we?" Do you have a mouse in your pocket? You're just as blind as the other idiots. Blind brand loyalty is just as dumb no matter the manufacturer. You're proving that!

Nothing. But I would imagine that those guys still race regular 10.5 outlaw stuff were you must weigh at least 3000lbs.

What is this all about. I'm quite sure he didn't go to some decision maker for a class and say the rules state I have to weigh XXXX but my car weighs XXXX less, will you please let me run in this class anyway. I doubt very seriously he did that. And yes if a ford starts dominating in a class that has almost all chevys don't you think for a second that the rules won't get changed or penalties put on the ford to keep it from dominating. All race officials for multi-brand drag races know the general rule is if a chevy ain't in the winner's circle, bubba won't watch. They will do what it takes to keep bubba happy because he's the one buying the ticket to get in the gate. Ford dominates long enough=bubba stays at home because he won't watch a ford that must be "cheating".

Make sure you tell that to bubba.

He walked away because at the time he entered the sanctioning body, his car fit their rules. But, as usual, he wins a few races and the bitching by the other racers starts. He was gettng a huge weight break because he was using a nitrous motor. The rule makers thought (before Glidden) nitrous motors had a big disadvantage against the turbo and blower cars. So, he took advantage of the rules that were written and legally dominated the class. While the bitching continued, they had to change the rules so that meant he had to change his car. I would have said, "screw that" also. Why make the winner change? I say make the slower cars change. But, the rule makers don't see it that way.

Glidden does not enter in a class and define the rules. He enters in a class, follows the rules, wins a few races, they change the rules because of all the bitching, he finds somewhere else to race.

He found a place were he can race and not worry about anything.
Not worry about anything yet.....

BTW, who is this "we?" Do you have a mouse in your pocket?
"We" as in the other people I race with, go to races with, discuss racing, and building cars with. Who else would I be talking about?

All Cleveland used to be a tech at one of the local mud racing tracks. He can tell you just exactly how the blind loyal chevrolet idiots act when a Ford legally dominates a class. To the contrary, I have never seen or heard the Ford or Mopar guys whine and bitch when any other brand wins. Wonder why it seems like its always the chevrolet lovers? I know why, because they are spoiled little bitches who pitch a fit whenever they don't get something their way. Fair and equal racing to them have no meaning. Dale Earnhardt proved that.


But I would imagine that those guys still race regular 10.5 outlaw stuff were you must weigh at least 3000lbs.
So they run their cars in another class where there is no weight minimum, and allow Glidden to dominate because they don't want to bother to remove the weight? Yeah right. I bet that's what's happening. :rolleyes:
