SHO powered buggy dusting an LS-1 buggy the wrong way!
When I dropped the hammer, the front end came up and I got a little out of
sorts. I tried to find him after the race to apologize but he scooted.
My buggy has a 3.2 liter SHO motor from an automatic transmission SHO, with
a Roots style Eaton blower from an 89 Ford Thunderbird SuperCoupe. It's
puts 278 hp to the ground and has 300 pound*feet of torque from about 1200
rpms up to 6000 where the blower runs out of steam. Really should have
gone with an M-112. Now she's turbo'd
and too scary for this old man. Looking to sell her to someone with bigger
cajones. Craigslist Phoenix. $ 34,900.00
I took it to the asphalt drags also and did a 12.48 at 110 mph on knobbie
tires. What a hoot.
Bad crash at Glamis December 16th 2012
Bad Crash at Glamis December 2012. I'm wearing the Gopro. The rider was
okay, no broken bones, no internal bleeding, he was checked at the
Snippet from my face book page:
The experienced guy rolls through the bowls but the new guy...... well....
he is coming around the first bowl near the top to transition to the second
bowl and he bails on the bowl and starts heading down the bowl. At the
bottom of the bowl is a bush where a 4-5 foot mound of sand has piled up.
This guy target fixates on the mound, goes whiskey throttle, gets to the
bottom of the bowl hits a g-out, and goes from whiskey throttle to pinned
throttle, and hits the mound. This guy jumped about 75 feet and landed on
his face. We fired up and raced over to him and he is laying there not
moving at all. Jump off the quad and get over to him and he is face down
snoring the kind snore you just don't want to hear. I'm calling out his
name and a trickle of blood runs down his face and I am thinking this guy
is going to take 4-5 more breaths and check out but he keeps breathing. We
are calling out his name, his girlfriend is on the phone with 911 crying
and puking, and about 5 minutes have gone by when we see a leg twitch..
then an arm twitch. He started trying to roll over, and we were trying to
keep him down but he was struggling so hard we thought we might injure him
so we let him kind of do his thing. He kept trying to sit up, still snoring
and fighting us. He finally sat up and after awhile stopped snoring and
could answer questions. Nothing was broken that we could see and the blood
I saw came from the helmet hitting his cheek. We were in a really bad spot
for the air lift so my buddy used the Razor to gently take him back to
camp. Medics showed up and this guy was actually ok but he couldn't
remember the last 30 minutes.
I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor
Turbo'd 90 SHO vs turbo'd SHO powered buggy
Friendly drag race at Speed World on 10-18-08, between a recently turbocharged 1990 SHO and me in my dune buggy. I
call the buggy "The Other Woman" and you might have seen my YouTube videos
of her with the Eaton blower on her at the sand drags at Gordon's Well in
At this race, the 90 kept up with me the entire way which is very
surprising when you consider that he's carrying at least a 1000 pounds more
than the buggy.
Wicked Sand Toys - Supercharged LS2 Sand Rail
Our first dual sport prototype riding wheelies 5 minutes out of the trailer
for its initial shakedown. The supercharged LS2 from Redline Performance
puts out just below 800HP on pump gas. Suspension was not yet tuned and
set up a little too soft in this vid. Filmed in 2005.
Glamis New Years 2013
Glamis California. Wide variety of awsomeness in the dunes and at the sand
drags! See our other similar video's. We have additional footage of a
sandcar cartwheeling down Oldsmobile Hill on Presidents Day. If you "share"
this video, please indicate where you shared.
Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few
drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch!
My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged
with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely
rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the
subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also
plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is
built to drive the piss out of it! :D
It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am
only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come
I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!
Quad with HAYABUSA engine / Silver Lake Sand Dunes / Ambassador Dan
Dan sent us a message requesting any clips of himself. These are the clips
I found. This was filmed on Saturday the 7th of July. If you were at Silver
Lake Sand Dunes during the 4th of July holiday 2012 we might have footage
of YOU too. Drop us a line of what you were driving and we will try to
assemble clips your truck for a video.
