Budget Built Turbo Maverick Sleeper GoPro
Josh Dillon's turbo big block Maverick making a pass at Brainerd Optimist Drag Strip in Ringgold, Georgia. Car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock crank, H beam rods, forged pistons, stock head castings and valve size, blow through carb, Borg Warner S475 turbo. This pass is on 18 pounds on 93 octane pump gas with a safe tune. Track conditions were poor as you can tell by the squirrelly ride. I think this pass was a 7.0X at around 100 miles per hour. Other details about the car: C6 transmission, Dacco torque converter (way too loose), 3.00 gear, stock 8 inch rear end, stock axles, mini spool, 26x8.5-15 tires, original leaf springs, stock shocks, slapper bars.
