Yamaha powered dune buggy at the drags?

Thought I would take my dune buggy to the street drags at SpeedWorld in Surprise AZ. At this event I had a 3.2L Yamaha V-6 out of a Ford Taurus SHO in her with a M-90 Eaton Roots style blower bolted to the side of the block, and pushing 8 psi. I don't have street tires for her so I ran with my BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. Didn't have a bottle warmer for the 30 shot of Nitrous so I left it off. Fastest time of the night was a 12.49 @ 110mph

Sho dune buggy
This is a engine out of a 89 ford taurus SHO.This is only the second one ever to have been taped or have a pic taken so as far as i know this is only the second one ever built and soon to be the first one ever to have twin turbos in a buggy.This buggy is 100% built not bought like all these other people who pay 100+K for a 4 seater and think they are bad ass then when they break down they are going home since they dont know how to fix crap this buggy can easily smoke all of those 4 seater expensive pos's check out the other viedos on youtube of the first ever built one it dusts a ls1 without a issue this viedo was taken during fathersday at the little sahara state park





Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch! lol My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is built to drive the piss out of it! :D It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come in time.... I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!
