A Big Thanks to ALL who voted this Sick 66 "SOTW"
SEE THE VIDEO AT BOTTOM OF PAGE. Sorry, sound is not that great from the camera.
Feel free to enlarge the pics. She looks even better up close.
Freash off the trailer at the track. Time for test and tune.
Prime her up and lets ROLL
A breakdown of the NEW Chevy power plant: More info on the way with more pics and videos.
This is a FI - Alcohol Shafiroff Drag Race Engine. 540 CID DART Big Chief.
TCI Competition T400 Transmission with 5500 Stall & trans brake - Full manual ratchet shift. Strange 12 bolt Rearend. QA1 front and rear coilovers, Competition 4 link and wheelie bars. NHRA certified 7.5 second custom roll cage. Weld Wheels all 4 corners. M/T Sportsman street tires for the road. Matching Weld wheels on Goodyear slicks for track fun.
All required components are SFI certified. Honea Autobody did a flawless paint and clear on her. The lines are perfect. So many coats of clear it looks wet!
How could you not love a rearend like that? lol. Dave Riley set the coil overs and competition 4 link suspension for hooking up, big time.
The custom cockpit fits like a glove. SafeCraft Halon fire supression, chute release, radio communications, diagnostics, all within easy reach at wide open throttle. The NHRA certified 7.5 sec roll cage was made street friendly by the quick release side bar.
You can see the Blue interconnect for helmet communications. Stroud Harnesses are fantastic, never skimp on safety. Yes, there is a passenger seat. Someday, the right person will enjoy it. No, I'm not taking applications. :)
Custom gauges and dash. The Painless Control Panel and wiring, Custom fiberglass pods in dash. You can see the green 2nd stage 200 shot Nitrous button on the quick release steering wheel. Better than any amusement park ride. Oh yeah, the original key is still used :)
9.29 Second pass launching at 3000rpms and taking her easy. Next track visit 5500 rpm launch and push her hard should get us in the 8's easily.
