Dyno Testing a Blown Methanol Monster

Everyone knows that the guys at Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) are pushing the envelope to the very edge with regards to maximum performance. This video shows you just how far these professionals are willing to go to extrapolate every ounce of horsepower from the last cubic inch of their popular handcrafted, custom built crate motors. Running a dynamometer is a risky proposition, even when the engine is bolted into a chassis, but when you are talking about testing loose supercharged engines anything can happen. Now add in copious amounts of a volatile and highly combustible fuel known as methanol-alcohol and Read More

All-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission make sure that traction is never an issue. Meanwhile, the Read More

If you want to race in the Pro Street Class of the National Hot Rod Diesel Association (NHRDA), then you are going to need to make some pretty prolific modifications to any stock vehicle. This heirloom 1969 C10 pickup (the bed is from a 1995 model) has certainly undergone just such a mutation: the cab and cockpit are primarily stock, as they were when Brett Deutsch’s (the current owner) grandpa turned it over to him at the tender age of 15. Brett wrestled his way through an assortment of small block Chevy power plants (including a supercharged 383-stroker) before he Read More
