Drag racing the Omni GLH SRT4
First time I've ever gotten a chance to see myself drag racing. These are 3
of the runs I made on Friday May 8th, 2009. I'm running 8psi of Boost, E85 for fuel, MegaSquirt is running my
2.4L DOHC motor. I REALLY have a traction problem in 1st and 2nd. The last
car I ran against really threw me off, I normally baby my gas in 1st and
2nd to keep the tires connected. I couldn't hear anything but that loud
thing, I was quite happy when he ran off and left me to myself. hehehe
1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years
Shelby Dodge OMNI GLH Commercial
The Dodge Omni and the similar Plymouth Horizon were front wheel drive cars
introduced by the Dodge and Plymouth divisions of the Chrysler Corporation
in North America in December 1977 for the 1978 model year. They were
based on a European Simca-based design of the same name. They were the
first of many successful front-wheel drive models, such as the Dodge
Aries/Plymouth Reliant and the Dodge Caravan/Plymouth Voyager which helped
return Chrysler to profitability.
The ultimate Dodge Omni was the modified Omni GLH. The original name,
"Coyote", was rejected, and Carroll Shelby's choice, the initials GLH,
which stood for "Goes Like Hell", were taken instead. 1984 was the first
year of the GLH, which carried over most of the modifications that had been
made the previous year to the Shelby Charger. 1985 was the debut of the
GLH-T model with the turbo I (K) engine
option. This engine, at low Boost
(7.2 PSi) coupled with the car's very low weight (as low as 2,200 lb (1,000
kg)), earned this car its name. The car carried over into 1986 unchanged
aside from the addition of a hatch-mounted third tail light, and production
was stopped. The final 500 GLH-T cars (all black) were sold to Shelby, who
used them as the basis for the 1986 Shelby GLHS ("Goes Like Hell S'More").
These cars were modified by Carroll Shelby in California and sold as
Shelbys. With 175 horsepower (130 kW) and 175
lb·ft (237 N·m) of torque, the Shelby GLHS was a modified 2.2 with a turbo 2 setup which included a 2 piece blow
through intake (the GLH-T was a draw through turbo design) shelby ecu, Boost was raised to a conservative 12psi, T2
turbocharger compressor cover and a
The short block stayed the same between the GLH-T and GLHS. Further
modifications included 205/50R15 Eagle GT Gatorback tires mounted on Shelby
Centurian wheels, Koni adjustable struts and shocks, and stiffer springs.
Different decals were also part of the package. Silver pin stripes down the
ground fx along with "SHELBY" decals replaced the standard red GLH-T
decals. A "SHELBY" decal was added to the windshield and a large "GLHS"
decal on the driver side rear sail panel. All GLHS cars came with a
numbered dash plaque, Mobile 1 valve cover plaque, MOMO shift knob and
Shelby leather wrapped steering wheel and A black/yellow overlay sticker
was placed at the bottom of the speedometer to read to 135 mph.
