CHEVELLE EXPLODES TRANNY AT BACK WOODS TRACK
A UHAV classic from George Rays Wildcat Dragstrip. The driver was OK but
WTF with racing in a t-shirt, shorts and no helmet. This footage originally
appeared on horsepower TV but
unfortunately Joe Elmore and the rest of the lying rat bastards at HPTV
never gave us credit. Pretty poor since this was the money shot for what
turned out to be the most viewed episode they ever produced. FU HPTV!

Sehr Performance Machine / Mike's 383 Mopar
Mike found us in the AutaBuy Magazine and did some research on us.
Satisfied with what he found he made contact and we went to work.
He was looking for a 383 to put in his 1964 Dodge, Polara 4 speed car. He
isn't going to the drag strip with the car and just wanted some reliable,
original, 'Old School' horsepower for it. To that
end we built his 383 with loads of bottom end torque and horsepower that is similar
to what was available in 1964.
We did bring his build into the 21st Century with a few upgrades like an
SFI flywheel and balancer, new clutch assembly, new 750 cfm Quick Fuel carb
and an Aluminum Dual Plane intake. ACL bearings and FelPro gaskets were
used throughout with Melling doing the duties on the timing set, oil and
water pumps. To get rid of the waste gases we also got Mike a set of
Hedman ceramic-coated headers.
Cuda 440 Six Pack Shaker Hood drag race
Here is an unrestored 440-6 pack Cuda with Shaker hood at a drag strip. The
car has so much power the tires are spinning most of the way down the 1/4
mile (listen to the engine, the sound doesn't change due to spinning tires)
In the end the Mustang wins
by a length. The Cuda driver said he could have, and was catching the Mustang, bit eased up on the
gas to be able to stop the car with it's manual brakes in the short
shutdown strip. Can't say I blame him, would you risk such an expensive car
just to win the race? The car was originally used as a drag car, and has
not been restored, it is in very good shape :-) Glad we caught what may be
it's only strip run on video.
