We take the 1970 nova dubbed Notorious for a little test. First its driven without the Supercharger belt, running on the 572 BB motor only. Then after a quick belt add on, the procharger is turned on and ready to go. The question is, do we run the car with or without it?

The Sound of 1424HP
Car Craft Nationals 2009. July 17th,18th,19th. St. Paul, MN
Ford Thunderbird, All-Aluminum 572, F3 Pro-Charger. The car actually makes
over 1700HP to the wheels but the day before the owner discovered one(of
two) blow-off valves was cracked at the based where it was welded to the
piping. They fixed it right quick by placing the Car Craft license plate
givin' to them from entering in the show and wrapped a slab of thick rubber
around the license plate and tied it all down with 3 hose clamps. This car
won the Mobil 1 Dyno
Challenge for the weekend with this pull.

NEW 2013 SEASON VIDEO:TEST HIT!!!
LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build!
Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

"Sick Fish" a 1970 Cuda built at Rad Rides by Troy for Joe Rogan (and
maintained here at Pure Vision) is on the Westech Dyno for a tune up to fix some
driveablitiy issues. Power at the wheel out of this 528ci Hemi is a little
over 440 with more than 520 ft/lbs through an automatic 727. The beautiful
sounds come from a custom Rad Rides 3" system with modified Flowmaster
