Gary & Pam Beineke built their 1971(G-Series) wingcars based upon results from a secret wind tunnel test report Chrysler had conducted in early 1970 on the new 71 Dodge and Plymouth B-bodies. No full scale cars were ever built...until now. After building a car they tested the full scale version in the A2 Wind Tunnel. This video shows the smoke testing from that day.
Dyno pulls - Lee Sicilio's Hemi Daytona Landspeed car
Car holds a number of records in "Classic" category at Bonneville. Current
engine is a 498 CID Ray Barton Hemi with FAST XFI injection.
These are the last two pulls to verify AFR and ignition at 7000+rpm before
heading to Bonneville later this year, trying for a record in the
Although we were not logging horsepower on these loaded
pulls (not important) - the engine made 930 hp on Barton's Superflow engine
Special thanks to import tuner Steve Kan, who allowed us to use his
facility in Fort Worth!

Upside Down Race car Myth
Can an F1 or Indy car produce enough down force to drive upside down? We
used a 70lbs exact scale (40%) replica of an Indy car for this simple
demonstration. Since these cars run at low ride heights we had to come up
with a way that someone could visually see the car stick to the ceiling and
not just look like it was held there. View the demonstration to see how we
accomplished this. The car must produce more than its weight in down force
to overcome gravity and stick to the ceiling. In this case the car must
produce more than 70lbs of down force. See what happens...

Vintage Test Drive of a 1969 Hemi Dodge Daytona Charger in Quebec Canada
This is a rare video of a 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger with a 426 Hemi engine
being tested flat-out at Mont Tremblant in Quebec Canada by test driver
Jacques Duval. Many people do not realize that the infamous Daytona Charger
was actually more 70 Charger than 69 as it used the fenders and hood from
the upcoming 70 Charger.
Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate
to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the
'71 NASCAR season that never was.
They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind
Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler
performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a
rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from
competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and
also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back
when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model
were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their
car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's.
Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get
built into a full scale version.
The Daytona and Superbird show
This my first video on you tube so forgive me if i had made some mistakes
in the film.
About the show
This is a little tribute to 2 of the famous cars to ever race around the
banks of speedways in the U.S between 1969 to 1971.
Famous drivers like Richard Petty Bobbie Allision and many others drove
these cars in Nascar ACRA and the old USAC series.

The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.
