Kick Ass 68' Cougar!!!! Burnout and Races!!
terrin it up... the few videos i have . 351w, 4:10 gears, Slapstick auto
with overdrive, holley carb, blah blah blah Blah BLAH... so tired of
telling people everything on my car!
I took the Cougar out for some testing and tuning again. I don't have
access to a truck anymore, so I had to haul all my stuff to the track in
the Cougar. I'll admit that I felt like a redneck driving around with a
tire in the backseat and a toolbox on the passenger seat. I was planning on
running the bottle this time out, but found a small mechanical problem
before I went to the track, so it ended up being another day running on the
motor. This pass was 6.87 @ 101.20. Not too bad for driving to the track.
LED Taillights on a '68 Mercury Cougar
This video is to show how much easier the sequential taillights work on a
'68 Mercury Cougar, when LED lights are installed. As you can see, the
left side works faster, is
'crisper', even when the taillights are on. The one's on the right are the
plain, incandescent bulbs. Notice how much slower, and longer it takes,
especially when the taillights are on. I had the battery on a charger
while I was taking this. The LED lights I used are relatively inexpensive.
I purchased them from: www.superbrightleds.com, and they are the 1157-R24
(the wide beam), and they are $7.49 each. They last 10,000 hours, and use
a LOT less energy than incandescent bulbs. They do make brighter, more
expensive LED's, but these are pretty close, if not brighter than regular
Nitrous Muscle Truck and Mini Bikes! - Roadkill Episode 18
A Vette-powered stepside truck. Nitrous
oxide. Honda Trail 70s. Drag racing, and lots and lots of burnouts. Those
are the basic plot points on this episode of Roadkill, as Freiburger and
Finnegan have big fun with retro trail motorcycles on their way to
revitalizing a long-neglected HOT ROD magazine project vehicle and
road-tripping it to the eighth-mile drags. The vehicle is the Muscle Truck,
a '74 Chevy shortbed stepside beater powered by an all-aluminum Corvette
LS6. It also has a turbo 400
transmission, a Gear Vendors under/overdrive, a Ford 9-inch with 5.13
gears, and the most wicked sounding Exhaust ever. The goal is to get thrown out of
the dragstrip for going too fast without a rollbar, then race the minibikes
instead. How much Nitrous can the Muscle

SummerDuck Drag Racing
I decided to take the Cougar out to the track for some 1/8th mile action.
Drove it to the track, bolted on the slicks and gave her hell. Ended up
being just over 70 miles round trip. Nothing broke this time!!!This pass
was 7.10 @ 98.6 mph with a 1.54 60ft. I haven't managed to get much seat
time this season, which may have attributed to my 1st round loss. I
definitely could use a little more practice bangin gears. I really want to
get some 1/4 mile passes in this year. Seems like I'm just getting started
around the 1/8th mile mark..............
