My 86 EXP racing A 1968 Dodge Dart GTS with a cammed 340, aftermarket intake, headers, open Exhaust and drag radials. I am running 13 PSI in this video. I ran .2 seconds slower than the Dart at 6 mph faster in the 1/8th.
The Legend Bob Glidden
My tribute to my all time favorite Pro Stock racer Bob Glidden. All photos
are from my collection of pictures that I took of some of Bob's cars over
the years. Also included is the Diamond P coverage of Bobs horrifying crash
at the 1986 race in Atlanta.
In the '90s Bobs sons Billy and Rusty told thier Dad that they knew of some
Pro Stock racers who were running Nitrous Oxide and that was the reason they were
getting outrun. Bob didn't believe them so they built a second car to prove
that it could be done without being detected. .From the Feb 1996 issue of
Super Stock & Drag Illustrated. Page 24
"They will tell you it's totally impossible to run Nitrous & not get caught'' Glidden said " but
thats wrong,Thats flat wrong. A Ford with Nitrous bumped me outta the field at Topeka last
year. A Ford out of my own trailer. So nobody can tell me it can't be done.
I know it can be done."
The the father told a incredible story of how his kids had bugged him for
18 months , convinced that some Pro cars were running Nitrous & that he was missing the boat by not
running it too. "I told them if i had to cheat to race i'd quit" he said
"My kids know that: " if you think other people are doing it then go ahead,
prove to me you can do it.But keep in mind that if you get caught you're
going have to deal with the consequences; So they did & never got caught"
Later in the story
Then came the bombshell--- an admission at Indy by a Pro Stock racer with
firsthand knowledge of Nitrous oxide use
: Rusty Glidden. With his confession came a detailed description of how the
Nitrous system was secreted in his car.
"The holding tank was the big weight bar in the back. The Nitrous line started there,went over the axle
housing right up to the front of the car & stopped at the motor plate,
which was rifle-drilled. One of the supports holding the hood scoop on was
rifle-drilled & went up thru the top of the hood scoop to a small stainless
steel line that had 2 jets centered over the carbs. With .029 jets we made
120 ftlbs more torque at 7000 rpm & averaged 90 more horsepower. According to Bob
Glidden , the Nitrous system was
detection proof. "you had to have a combination of things to activate it so
a tech guy couldn't walk up , turn on the ignition & open the throttle. The
shock switch had to be on, the computer switch on, the engine running & the
throttle wide open. Trust me" Glidden concluded " Thats not fiction"
Mr. Norm Interview, Pt. 1 - How the '68 Dart GSS Was Created

Spaulding Dodge created the Dart GSS, a fire-breathing compact muscle car

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
The all-new Dart proves that when Dodge puts their minds to it, they have
the ability to build us a thoroughly competitive offering in the crowded
compact sedan class. A hefty curb weight and slightly "boomy" base engine
detract from an otherwise pleasant car. Just be sure to shop the entire
class before making your final decision.
