7 Second Australian 1972 Valiant Charger
Not a car you see in the US that often, John Faraone's 4200lbs 572ci Twin
88mm turbo powered 1972 Valiant Charger
layed down some serious passes on Drag Week, especially the last day when
he overcame some tuning issues and broke into the 7's! We love seeing
people come from overseas to enjoy this insane event, especially when they
come from the opposite side of the world!

The first start up of a Quad turbo 6.1L
Hemi in a Valiant Charger. It's all controlled by a stand alone EMS 8860
