Tony and Gillian Argentino - The Hitman - blown alcohol Chev
Tony and Gillian Argentino's 1936 Chev drag racer is known as "The Hitman", and is a theme car that represents history from America, which now resides in Perth, Western Australia. With its curvy shapes and vivacious body, the car represents beauty, charm and character, all whilst the tough supercharged and injected alcohol burning engine provides power for the machine. Recent testing of the car got Tony familiar with all of the levers and buttons, and the crew kept the car working good enough through two successive race days and acquired several personal best times along the way. When testing a car of this caliber, power and driver need to familiarize and adjust, and the team was exceptional in achieving what they have in just three outings. Hitman Racing is also heavily involved off the track where Gillian takes care of marketing the car. She has been involved with the establishment of Supercharged Outlaws in Western Australia, and more info and merchandise is available from http://www.superchargedoutlawswa.com.au Tony has been racing on and off since he was 17 (23 years) starting in street, then modified until Outlaws started in WA and is best known for their previous car, a 1934 Ford 3 window coupe altered. This Hitman car was purchased from Terry Hall of Terry Hall Race Car Bodies in Vermont USA. It was running Pro-Mod and the Super Chevy series and has a best time of 6.30 @ 220mph. The Argentino's purchased the car as a roller, and are using the engine and gearbox from their old '34. The car is a 1936 Chevy Master (carbon fibre), it has a chrome-moly chassis, 442 cubic inch Chevy (iron block) and the engine is built and maintained by Tony. Induction comes from a 14-71 Littlefield hi-helix retro Supercharger, it has an FTC converter and 2-speed Powerglide, and the rear end is a Mark Williams modular rear with Strange Ultracase 4.56 gears and 40 spline axles. Tony and Gillian would like to thank all of the crew for their help, Kwinana Performance for parts and the hands on effort of the Boss and staff who also double as Crew. Graham, Jan and Neil from Southside Engine Centre, FTC Race Converters for looking after the converter and gearbox, Spud at DJW Engineering for making all the nice mods to get the running gear to fit and making nifty things as needed. Fuchs Oils for supplying the oils and race fuel, Genie Exhaust, and The Moving Man Removals.

37 Fiat Topolino Bob test drive
Bob Rizzoli's 37 Fiat Topolino street rod...BPMS 406 Rodeck w/Kinsler 8 stack IR intake......Special Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler Fuel Injection who guided us through the very complex setup of FAST EFI and the first to provide us with a "super" base calibration fuel map for our IR 8 stack ........We are sorting out some small issuses....headlights,brake and tag lights ......are plan is to attend Ocean City MD. in the spring for their car show/cruise weekend. In the mean time we have been dialing in the four link and data logging in an attemp to minamize our O2 fuel corrections. The BPMS 406 runs very well.....lots of power for a 1600 lbs street rod. Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler this motor idles at 900 rpm w/great throttle response ! Working w/this EFI 8 stack off and on in the past ten years I finally had to agree with info I read on the internet.....That this combination was never going to be a streetable induction system .....not IR designs at any rate......Don't belive everything you read or hear ! This pile of parts works ....So glad I didn't give in to the Holley folks !

Winged Express AA/FA
The very famous Winged Express Fuel Altered piloted by Mike Boyd. Footage from many years, Includes that heart wrenching moment in 2005 when we watched the front wheel come off and the Wing hit the wall. Mike was okay, it was sad to see the Wing so badly damaged. One of the most iconic cars in drag racing history. The Wing was restored and is again doing what it does best!
