Davis Technologies and its groundbreaking Profiler wheel speed management device has played an integral part in a laundry list of performance benchmarks across the vast spectrum of drag racing over the years, and the accolades continue to pile up, both stateside and beyond our shores.
One of the early notches in the belt of the Profiler and its mastermind, Shannon Davis, came with radial tire superstar Brad Edwards, who powered his twin-turbocharged Ford Mustang to the first-ever three-second pass on 315 radial tires back in the fall of 2014 at the Huntsville Dragway in Alabama. Since that time, the Profiler has propelled Edwards and countless other racers into the records books. And the latest came from halfway around the globe.
Australian Jarrod Wood, driving the familiar Ford Mustang he purchased from American radial tire standout Kevin Mullins, made history by recording the first, and to this point only, three-second run by a radial tire car in the country when he carded a 3.99 at the recent Kenda Tires Radial Riot at Willowbank Raceway. Wood’s Mustang, powered by a twin-turbo TKM Hemi, is controlled by a Davis Profiler and a FuelTech FT600 ECU.
With that, Davis and company can now boast the first three-second radial tire passes in both the United States and Australia.
Australian Perry Bullivant, another Davis Profiler runner, set the national record ahead of Wood’s magical run with a 4.04 at the Radial Riot, marking himself a certifiable three-second player, as well.
