2009 Sepang Drag Battle Rd.4 – 3000hp Dragsters and GTR’s

2009 Sepang Drag Battle Round 4 (81)

Round 4 of the 2009 Sepang Drag Battle was a great Halloween treat as driver’s tricked out their rides to conquer the 400 meter run. There were the usual suspects of Evo’s, Subaru’s, Honda’s and Proton’s in attendance but gracing the event were sub-10 second cars from Thailand that didn’t compete but were there to liven things up and the star of the show, also from Thailand, was of course the Goodyear dragster.

The dragster was scheduled to make two appearances throughout the event, but we only managed to catch it once during our stay there but that was good enough to leave a lasting impression. I guess that’s what 3000hp does to you not to mention the temporary deafness as it roars by. However, it only managed a very “normal” time of 10.4  seconds due to the length of the circuit’s pit-straight (dragsters need a longer straight for it to stop in time).

The fastest competition car of the day was a Mitsubishi Evolution which clocked a time of  9.4-seconds.  But the  actual fastest car of the day was a 180SX brought in from Thailand for show, it outdid everyone by posting a time of 8. plus seconds. There was also a Nissan GTR R35 looking to conquer the 400 meter run but it too shamefully ran out of luck in the semi-finals.

  3. kaki 83 says that the car is from kl but tuned and engineered in Bangkok with Thai driver. Body hacked in Kulim.Powered by Ya Service not Malaysian technology or power. Anyway, great power and achievement. Success to Thailand.

  4. jaspal, that’s nice. dismissing two years of hard work like that. off course with the help from thais. there is no secret about that. what is a big deal about tuning 700hp car? nowadays everybody and their father can tune a car….

  5. Jaspal you seems to know a lot about the making of 180sx.. Hurmm are you 1 of the engineer, staff or anyone involve in the making of 180sx?? Coz as far as i know that 180sx is not like what you are telling to people. Thanx for the compliment.. Success to Malaysian guys as well for packing a good team with Thais… Good job Setiawangsa Racing..

  6. Thai power is still Thai power. Accept it. If you build your own then you take credit. If you did not then it is ok. No need to be upset.

  7. so can’t be thai + malaysian power? otherwise zali & yl enginerring will be upset if the credit is not given to them.
