80 yr old RATROD hits 172MPH + Daily prizes at StreetFire
When Tony Lee and his wife felled a tree growing through the center of a
rusted 1930's sedan years ago, they couldnt imagine the project they were
undertaking would end up in this- a RatRod capable of over 170 MPH. Check

TC pretty much shocked everybody when he built his buggy called SHOWTIME.
It's Jimmy Smith Motorsports Chassis and TC built the rest at his shop.
There isn't many hills he didn't hit in this buggy in the last few months.
He started breaking the 300m RCV shafts so he decided to build some new 14
Bolt axles with Ouverson Shafts and Rockwell Outers. So I can't wait to
see how he treats in next.
Mark Sheehan's Nitro Funny Car test day 23.12.2007
This is Mark Sheehan's Nitro Funny Car licensing debut taken on the 23rd
December at the Perth Motorplex. On the car's first 60-foot shut-off
launch, all went well with an impressive .94 short time on the sizzling hot
120-degree track. On the second launch for the day (which was meant to be a
330 foot shut-off) the head gaskets blew, and so the team packed up for the
The car has a Victory chassis, and was originally built for John Force as a
spare chassis for his team, but was never used. When the Sheehan team
acquired this chassis, it was used and built as a small block Alcohol
Altered, and ran as quick as 5.69 seconds on both sides of Australia. The
Victory chassis was then reworked, and a great deal of effort was put into
building the parts and components that were required to convert the car
onto nitro, which was all done locally in Perth by the many people who
helped bring the dream together to make it the reality which it is today.
When the Sheehan team made the switch over onto nitromethane with the
chassis, it was mated up with an ex John Force 2003 Castrol Syntec Mustang Funny Car body, which was
used by Tony Pedregon to win the 2003 NHRA World Championship.
The main engine components on the car were purchased from Bill Miller in
America including engine blocks, cranks and manifolds, while the cylinder
heads and the rest of the other parts came from the John Force Racing
stables. The engine combination will produce between 7000 and 8000 horsepower once it is all
sorted, and should be capable of propelling Sheehan to 4-second ET's at
over 300 mph.
Mark and Sharon would like to thank all of the people and sponsors who have
been involved with helping the car to get in it's first laps including Red
Line Oil, Dimoff Transmissions, Beau's Haulage, WA Racecar Fibreglass, Rory
Taylor from Speed Torque, Ian Jenkins from JPP, Jay Upton, Bill Miller, the
Perth Motorplex, and of course all of the happy crew.
Future licensing procedures for the team are now planned for January 2008.
4Sale fastest street car ?? 2000 hp 1963 Pontiac LeMans
MORE PICS HERE!!!
NOT MY CAR!!! Just thought it was a cool video.
This beast sports a twin turbo 522cid
big block Chevy that screams out 1250hp on pump gas and a ridiculous 2000hp
on race gas! Ever go 0 to 150mph in 5 seconds -- Butch can. Butch and his
3700lb Pontiac cruise the local streets (with parachute, of course) and run
the quarter in 7 seconds. How many 70 year old men have the nuts to mash
the throttle on 2000hp? Not sure, but Butch sure does. The Pontiac was
transformed into this behemoth at Nelson Supercars.

COMPETITIONPLUS.COM - JOHN FORCE CHASING UNCORPORATE AMERICA
John Force didn't need to lose two major sponsors to realize the pitfalls
of drag racing sponsorships.
The 15-time champion had been down this path before.
When both Ford and Castrol announced they would be stepping away from the
iconic drag racer at the end of the 2014 season, he immediately hired a
marketing, social media and reality television dream team to chase what he
coined as "Corporate America".
Decades ago, Force didn't have this option. He didn't have the wherewithal
to chase the corporate dollars.
"Corporate America wasn't some big company, you know what I mean? [It
wasn't] a McDonalds or AT&T. Corporate America was a little stereo store on
the corner. It was an opening Wendy's Hamburgers. It was a not corporate
General Motors or Ford Motor Company. It was Don Steves Chevrolet. You
understand how it evolved?"
This video, from Force's standpoint, takes you back into the days when he
wasn't so popular of a driver. It was an era when Force's gift of gab more
than made up for his lack of monetary funds.
In fact, it was this gift which landed enough money, to keep him in the
