1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

I appreciate all comments... but there is no reason to leave anything
nasty. I am new to iRacing and I am trying to build up speed... These
laps are not clean nor impressive but they are my starting point and my
personal video reference for the future.
I am clocking around 2:20ish per lap which lets be honest is nothing
special.... but I'm sure with practice I will drop this down towards the
Compared to something like GT6... where I can consistently achieve 2:07 Lap
times with the older 2000 Mobil Falcon V8 supercar (all assists tuned
off)... it's safe to say iRacing is definitely the more challenging
simulator. I have much more awareness of the cars weight and I have to be
really conscious to feather the accelerator through the winding sections
and modulate the brake pedal to try and avoid lockup.
I am using the clutch along with the paddle shifters, iRacing will not
allow me to use my H pattern shifter with the FG Falcon. In the future I
will be investing in a Fanatec sequential shifter, but for the moment the
paddles will have to do.
I am running 13FFB which I personally believe gives the wheel enough weight
to feel as realistic as driving a real car. I played around with higher FFB
setting and it felt like I was driving a bus... so for me this setting

Any questions feel free to ask.... P.s. All this equipment was acquired
over periods of years and months. I did not just go out one day and buy all
this... I truly enjoy racing.. and sim racing is a hobby of mine, that's
why I have invested all this money into it. Regardless of my lap times,
every time I get into that cockpit I have a blast.. thus in my eyes the
benefits outweigh the costs .
Thanks for watching! :)
FG XR6 Turbo Middle Muffler Delete Sound
Had the middle muffler removed from my car yesterday. It's only until I can
afford a custom system and tune. For the meantime this will do..
It sounds rather tough I think.
I had the whole front half of the Exhaust made as 3" so it doesn't split then go
back into single.
Only other mods are a Plazmaman 4" turbo
side intake and hotside Intercooler piping. Other than that
nothing else touched.
