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

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.
Classic Cougar Grille Tips - Part 2

LED Taillights on a '68 Mercury Cougar Part 2
Here is some disappointing video I shot of the same car, with the same
light configuration outside. The difference between the LED's (on the
left), and the incandescents (on the right), seems negligible, until the
brake lights are applied. Then, the incandescents are clearly brighter.
But, seeing as how the LED's make the sequential turn signals work so much
better, and are so much less of a drain on the electrical system, I WILL
find a way to make these work! I have already put the LED's on the right
side, since they work so much better. I was also standing almost right
behind the car (from the angle of view), and not like I was in another car
behind it. So, looking at them more on "an even plane", I'm sure it will
look brighter than it does here on the video.
