I've borrowed a practice tree from a fellow from the track. Thinking about asking if he wants to sell it.

It is a Port a tree Eliminator, with the fullsize tree (uses 12V 1156 bulbs - not floodlights).

Anyone have an idea of what its worth?

A new Eliminator 2000 is $199US, tree for $760US - but that is with 110V bulbs.

Thanks

In my opinion, a practice tree is well worth the dough. We have 3 of them. A full size, and 2 hand held units that sit in the cars. Makes you think about what you are doing once strapped into the car and waiting in the staging lanes. Especially when you get an oildown.

I feel that it will make you sharper on the tree.

Thanks guys - looks like he wants about $300 CAN. Would cost that just for a cheaper handheld up here! Will check with Al wether they will support this stuff.

Gotta get the boy to convince his mother that we need it - he starts with his Junior Dragster this May.
