Giant Turbo S10 vs Street Outlaws

September 4th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and fellow street racing aficionados. Welcome to legendary Thunder Valley Raceway for Outlaw Armageddon No Prep. Some of the biggest and most well-known names is drag racing have rolled in for this event. Among them are the popular cast of Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” television series.

Also in the mix is Larry Larson and his infamous Big Tire (Class) Chevy S10 pickup. When Larry got wind of a shake-up in the twin turbo regulation guidelines, which would have demanded that he increase overall vehicle weight, he made a change. Larry went to a single turbocharger. With no specific limitations on single turbo size; Larry opted for the absolute largest turbocharger that we have ever seen.

Propelled down the strip by a 481 cubic-inch ProLine Racing engine with a – wait for it… 136-millimeter turbocharger, Larry and his S10 are kickin’ butt and takin’ names. Big names, Street Outlaw top ten list names.

After several challenging test passes, Larry draws none other than Shawn in the Murder Nova in Big Tire Round 1. Shawn is an experienced street racer with a proven big block turbo car. Both cars come out of the hole like they were fired from a cannon. They are neck’n’neck going into the trap when Shawn begins to shake. About the same time, Larry has drifted near the center line. Murder Nova lifts to stop the shaking. Larry maintains and drives past Shawn moving on to Round 2.

Larry eliminates a nitrous Camaro in Round 2 and Swamp Thing in Round 3 before falling to Ryan in the Fireball Camaro in Round 4.
