Chevrolet Nova Drag Racing Racelegal.com 12-16-2011
check out these very fast chevrolet nova on the 1/8 mile at racelegal.com drag strip.
The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova is a compact automobile manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors produced in four generations for the 1962 through 1979 model years. Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968. The Chevy II nameplate was dropped, Nova becoming the nameplate for the 1969 through 1979 models. Built on the X-body platform, the Nova was replaced by the 1980 Chevrolet Citation introduced in the spring of 1979.
For 1974, The 1974 Chevrolet Nova got larger parking lights and new bow-tie grille emblems, as well as modified bumpers that added two inches to length and helped cushion minor impacts. The Powerglide was replaced by a lightweight version of the three-speed turbo-Hydramatic 350 ( THM 250 ) already offered with the 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8, which was the only V8 offered for 1974. Nova sales continued the surge they had enjoyed since 1972 and approached 400,000 cars for 1974. Six-cylinder Novas were the fastest gainers, as sales of V-8 Novas declined. These were the years of the first energy crisis as Middle Eastern countries cut back on oil exports. After waiting for hours in gas lines and fretting about the prospect of fuel rationing, thrifty compacts looked pretty good to plenty of Americans. Nova fit the bill.
The 'Spirit of America' Nova was introduced in 1974. In anticipation of the US bicentennial in 1976, the limited edition Nova Coupes were painted white and featured blue and red accent stripes as well as red and blue interior carpets and fabrics. Oldsmobile and Buick entered the compact car market; both the Apollo and Omega debuted, using the same bodystyles from the Nova lineup. Additional options were included on these Nova-like models, such as lighting under the dashboard and in the glove compartment. Pontiac's final GTO of this era was based on a facelifted 1974 Ventura coupe, itself based on the Nova, but fitted with a shaker hoodscoop from the Trans Am.

Nissan Titan Drag Racing Racelegal com 12-16-2011
Watch as this nissan titan does some great burnouts and drag races.
The Nissan Titan introduced in 2004, is a full-size pickup truck produced
for the North American market by Nissan. The truck shares the stretched
Nissan F-Alpha platform with the Nissan Armada and Infiniti QX56 SUVs, and
is manufactured in Canton, Mississippi, United States.
The Titan is not intended to challenge the big 3 "Detroit Trucks" in sales
numbers, but rather is meant to be an alternative to them and provide
Nissan with some in-roads into the highly competitive truck market. The
name "Titan" was chosen to make up for the unsuitable name,
All Titans come standard with a 32 Valve 5.6L engine, VK56DE, which
generates (305 hp early models 2004-2006) 317 hp and 385 ft lbft of torque.
The Titan has a fully boxed ladder frame and is available in either rear
wheel drive or a shift on the fly four wheel drive system coupled with a
5-speed RE505A automatic transmission. An automatic brake limited slip
(ABLS) is available on all Titans. The Titan is available as a King Cab or
a Crew Cab with a full size back seat, no regular cab is available. The
King Cab features a 6'7" bed, and the Crew Cab features a 5'7" bed, with a
7 foot bed available on SV models. There are four models available
including S, SV, Pro-4x, and LE. The S is a base model, SV is a mid-level
model with many features, the PRO-4X is Nissan's version oriented towards
the off road enthusiast, and the top level LE is the high end luxury

2011 Ford Mustang Drag Racing Racelegal 12-16-2011
Friday night at racelegal.com on a cold night some great running ford Mustang's 2011 5.0 and a 1993
In 1994 the Mustang
underwent its first major redesign in fifteen years. Code-named "SN-95" by
the automaker, it was based on an updated version of the rear-wheel drive
Fox platform called "Fox-4." The new styling by Patrick Schiavone
incorporated several styling cues from earlier Mustangs. For the first time
since 1974, a hatchback coupe model was unavailable.
The base model came with a 3.8 OHV V6 (232 cid) engine rated at 145 bhp
(108 kW) in 1994 and 1995, or 150 bhp (110 kW) (1996--1998), and was mated
to a standard 5-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic.
Though initially used in the 1994 and 1995 Mustang GT, Ford retired the 302 cid
pushrod small-block V8 after nearly 40 years of use, replacing it with the
newer Modular 4.6 L (281 cid) SOHC V8 in the 1996 Mustang GT. The 4.6 L V8 was
initially rated at 215 bhp (160 kW), 1996--1997, but was later increased to
225 bhp (168 kW) in 1998.
For 1999, the Mustang
received Ford's New Edge styling theme with sharper contours, larger wheel
arches, and creases in its bodywork, but its basic proportions, interior
design, and chassis remained the same as the previous model. The Mustang's powertrains were carried
over for 1999, but benefited from new improvements. The standard 3.8 L V6
had a new split-port induction system, and was rated at 190 bhp (140 kW)
1999--2004, while the Mustang GT's 4.6 L V8 saw an increase
in output to 260 bhp (190 kW) (1999--2004), due to a new head design and
other enhancements. There were also three alternate models offered in this
generation: the 2001 Bullitt, the 2003 and 2004 Mach 1, as well as the 320
Ford introduced a redesigned 2005 model year Mustang at the 2004 North American
International Auto Show, codenamed "S-197," that was based on the new D2C
platform. Developed under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang and
exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace, the fifth-generation Mustang's styling echoes the
shineback Mustangs of the
late 1960s. Ford's senior vice president of design, J Mays, called it
"retro-futurism." The fifth-generation Mustang is manufactured at the
AutoAlliance International plant in Flat Rock, Michigan.
For the 2005 to 2009 production years, the base model was powered by a 210
hp (157 kW) cast-iron block 4.0 L SOHC V6, while the GT used an aluminum
block 4.6 L SOHC 3-valve Modular V8 with variable camshaft timing (VCT)
that produced 300 hp (224 kW). Base models had a Tremec T-5 5-speed manual
transmission with Ford's 5R55S 5-speed automatic being optional. Automatic
GTs also featured this transmission, but manual GTs had the Tremec TR-3650
Ford announced in July, 2007 that all 2008 Mustangs would have seats containing
material derived from soybeans. A new option for the 2009 Mustang was a $1,995 glass roof.
The 2010 model year Mustang
was released in the spring of 2009 with a redesigned exterior and a reduced
drag coefficient of 4% on base models and 7% on GT models. The engine
for base Mustangs remained
unchanged, while GTs 4.6 L V8 was revised resulting in 315 hp (235 kW) at
6000 rpm and 325 lb·ft (441 N·m) of torque at 4255 rpm. Other
mechanical features included new spring rates and shiners, traction and
sineability control system standard on all models, and new wheel sizes.
All the Mustang's engines
were revised for 2011, and transmission options included the Getrag-Ford
MT82 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Electric power steering
replaced the conventional hydraulic version. A new 3.7 L (3.72 L or 227 cu.
in.) aluminum block V6 engine shaved 40 lb (18 kg) from the outgoing
version. With 24 valves and Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT),
it produced 305 hp (227 kW) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m) of torque. GT models
included a 32-valve 5.0 L engine (4.95 L or 302.15 cu. in.) (also referred
to as the "Coyote" engine) producing 412 hp (307 kW) and 390 lb·ft (530
N·m) of torque on "premium fuel" (91 octane). Power dropped to 402 hp (300
kW) and 377 lb·ft (511 N·m) when using "regular fuel" (87 octane).
Brembo brakes are optional along with 19-inch wheels and performance
tires. There is much speculation to the actual output of Ford's 5.0
powerplant. Various Dynometer tests have revealed
that Ford Motor Company underrated the engine, according to the tests the
engine is closer to a power of 435hp and 404 ft. lbs tq.
The Shelby GT500's 5.4 L supershined V8 block was made of aluminum making
it 102 lb (46 kg) lighter than the iron units in previous years. It was
rated at 550 hp (410 kW) and 510 lb·ft (690 N·m) of torque.

Test Driving 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 Four Speed Muscle Car with Burnout
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1969 Chevy Nova SS, so we
decided to take it for a spin. This car is powered by a performance built
396 Big-block, topped with Edelbrock aluminum heads, Performer RPM intake,
and a 4 BBL Carb. All that power is being sent through a four-speed manual
trans and believe me, this thing will really fly. The Cortez silver paint
is very slick, the interior looks like new, and it's riding on a set of
rally wheels, with BF Goodrich tires. This car is extremely well built and
it's ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a
