This unassuming 1970 Plymouth Cuda is a magazine featured steel rocket that is just as comfortable commuting back and forth to work as it is making passes at the local drag strip.
Restored by Mascar Autobody and Paint in Costa Mesa California, this killer '70 Cuda is a clean west coast car that retains all of its original body panels save for an AAR style fiberglass hood. Its factory straight body was completely covered in a great looking coat of Plum Crazy Purple basecoat/clearcoat and accented with flat black paint on its hood, header panel and horizontal side panels.
Under the hood you'll find a 340 Race X block that has been bored and stroked to 427 cubic inches and features a nasty 13 to 1 compression ratio and roughly 750 horsepower! Inside the massive black hood scoop a huge Holley Dominator 4 barrel carburetor sends 110 octane racing fuel and cool air from a high performance K&N filter into a modified single plane Indy intake. At the sides of that intake, slick looking oval port Indy aluminum heads have been fitted with Ferrea valves, K-Motion valve springs, T&D rocker arms and welded Moroso aluminum valve covers. Inside the block a Mopar performance crankshaft pushes Eagle rods and CP pistons while a custom ground Comp cam pops Comp solid roller lifters and Smith Brothers pushrods. At the back of the motor, an MSD digital 7AL box with two-step launch control sends fire from a Painless wiring harness to a Mallory Unilite distributor and red MSD ignition wires. At the sides of the block, Hooker long tube headers that measure 3.5 inches at the collectors border a custom oil pan with a center link pass through, and in front of the block a custom aluminum radiator carries both an electric fan and a Seatrab transmission cooler.
Underneath this Cuda you'll find more no compromises hardware and professional grade race equipment. A Pro-Trans built 904 3-speed automatic shifts quickly and efficiently while a turbo-Action trans brake and 5,700 stall Continental converter put a wheel stand inducing bite into the cars launches. Out back there's a stalwart Ford 9 inch rear end with an aluminum center section that carries pavement pounding Strange 4.30 gears and tough Moser 35 spline axles. Holding the engine off the ground is a factory torsion bar front suspension that's been upgraded with adjustable QA1 shocks and Wilwood manual disc brakes, and holding the rear end off the ground is Calvert monoleaf springs that are supplemented by adjustable Rancho 1000 shocks, CalTracs traction bars and two more Wilwood manual disc brakes. There's a custom 16 gallon fuel cell out back which sends fuel through a Barry Grant electronic fuel pump, and the massive Hooker headers flow into a vicious sounding ITT three inch Exhaust system that's complete with welded Dynomax mufflers and square stainless tips. At the corners, proven 15 inch aluminum Weld Pro Stars wear 28x4.5 Moroso DS-2 race only front tires and Mickey Thompson 325/50 ET Street radials in the rear.
The interior of this Cuda maintains all of its stock panels and carries the same 'wolf in sheep's clothing' theme as the exterior. During the build a 10-point chrome-moly roll cage that is NHRA certified to 7.99 seconds was built and installed by Bob Miller at BMP in Prescott, Arizona. Inside that cage, you'll find a stock vinyl rear bench and custom front buckets that have been upholstered with correct black vinyl and equipped with four point Simpson race harnesses. Between the seats, the cars original console sits on like-new black carpet and features a correct locking console, buttons for the cars power windows and a Hurst competition ratchet shifter that fits perfectly inside nice looking factory wood applique. In front of the seats, the cars original dash hangs accurate Autometer gauges and sports a large Autometer tachometer with a built in shift light and RPM memory function, and in front of the driver, a simple black Grant steering wheel is wired with a button that retards the cars timing.
Brutally fast yet completely streetable, this awesome '70 Cuda perfectly embodies the Pro Street philosophy.

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.

Racepumps Mechanical Fuel Pump Evaluation
I finally got to the track. I needed to find out if the mods I had done to
my fuel system would enhance the performance of the RacePumps mechanical
fuel pump. The short answer is YES! This is what I did. First I modified
the original fuel tank with a sump and two 1/2" pipe nipples. There is
another 1/2" pipe nipple, on the driver's side of the tank, facing the leaf
spring near the top corner (towards the axle). This one is used as a vent
to allow air to enter the tank when fuel is being used. The original pick
up in the tank, through the sending unit is used as a return line. I had
mine modified before with two 3/8" steel lines silver soldered in and to a
steel #8 AN fitting which now hooks up to my 1/2" return line. At the
engine, I'm using a Barry Grant 4 Port Regulator which is the Dead Head
type. I have a tunnel ram. So I used the 1/8" gauge port and got a fitting
for 1/8" pipe to #6 AN male, then adapter from #6 AN female to #8 AN male.
This hooks up to a 90 degree hose end #8 AN to #8 hose . The hose hooks to
a 1/2" Aluminum line back to the tank. I threaded the inside of the 1/8"
pipe connector that threads into the regulator and used a brass set screw
and drilled it for a 0.060" hole and threaded the set screw in. This is the
bleed hole for the return line allowing constant fuel flow. I had No fuel
pressure issues. No vapor lock. No fuel related issues at all. The pump
supplied fuel to the carbs at 6.5 psi at the end of the 1/4 mile every
pass. Be sure you put a good flowing inline fuel filter between the tank
and the pump! I used a mesh screen style filter from Russel. Has #8 AN male
ends and a 40 micron screen.
So I'm very happy with the results and if you buy this pump, it will work
but you must have a return line of at least 1/2" and a good size vent in
your tank. Just do it.

132587 / 2008 Bimota DB6R
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/8727v43
Light, powerful and compact, the Bimota DB6R stands for the greatest riding
experience you'll be able to find on two wheels.
With the DB6R, Bimota engineers aimed towards an even lighter and more
versatile motorcycle than their already capable Delirio models. Up front an
intricately designed headlight sits in a flat black housing above a carbon
fiber front fender. On top of the headlight, a gloss black gauge pod
incorporates a 10,000 RPM tachometer and a digital readout that combines
the bikes vital information with a performance readout that has a 20 lap
memory. Behind the readout, nicely finished silver handle bars feature
functional and stylish black mirrors above ceramic coated brake handles,
and hold reservoirs for the bikes Brembo brake system. At the base of the
handle bars, an ignition switch is almost completely surrounded by a
multi-faceted fuel tank that features bright red paint laid over pearl
white paint, black "bimota" scripts on each of its sides and a cool
machined aluminum fuel cap. Below the fuel tank a lightweight composite
frame has been covered in bright red and houses the bikes Ducati 1100
engine and dry clutch multi disc 'slipper' transmission. Behind the fuel
tank, a gray and black seat is held together with red stitching and sits
between two more sporty looking silver mesh grilles. Below the seat, a
silver shock for the bikes mono shock rear suspension sits behind more
carbon fiber bodywork and above silver aluminum pegs. Behind the seat, the
red and white body work hangs over a carbon fiber rear fender, a carbon
fiber tag bracket, matching LED tail lights and a cool integrated
The DB6R includes many new carbon fiber components including air conveyors
for the radiator, fairing sides, belt-covers, a clutch cover, a tag
bracket, fenders and side covers to successfully reduce weight.
Additionally, the bikes forged alloy wheels have been specifically
developed by Bimota, and shave off a little over 12 pounds. The silver
painted 17 inch front wheel wears a 120/70 Continental Sport Attack radial.
A matching silver painted 17 inch rear wheel wears a 180/70 Continental
Sport Attack radial.
The DB6Rs 1100 cc engine is taken right off the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 and
offers the same greatness and finesse of that bike in a lighter package
with a better transmission. That better transmission is a 6-speed 'slipper'
dry clutch transmission that is equipped with a hydraulic actuation system
and radial clutch pumps. The Ducati 1100 is a twin cylinder L shaped engine
that features 90 degrees opposing cylinders. It utilizes air cooling and an
electric fuel pump which sends fuel into a Walbro electronic fuel injection
system with a 45 mm throttle body and Magneti Marelli injectors for a 10 to
1 compression ratio, 95 horsepower and 76 ft./lb. of
torque. When combined with the feather weight body and weight saving
suspension, this high tech engine technology is good for a top speed of 165
That motor is mounted in a 1430 mm chassis that consists of an Extreme Tech
steering damper, a Marzocchi UD fully adjustable front fork and a fully
adjustable rear monoshock. Braking is supplied by a Brembo floating disc
system with a radial pump, drilled rotors with four piston, four pad radial
calipers up front and drilled rotors and two piston, two pad radial
calipers out back. The first thing that strikes you riding the Bimota DB6R
is its extremely responsive chassis that is perfectly suited to the
air-cooled L-twin from Ducati. The engine revs effortlessly and can be
taken up to its 8,500 RPM redline without any jerks or hesitation and when
combined with the dry clutch 'slipper' transmission, the result is agility
and handling that cannot be beaten. The bike is easily tossable, will turn
at nothing and if needed and can pop a wheelie almost immediately. It's so
tight and as long as the Continental Attack tires are warm enough,
everything works very well in the turns. It's a phenomenal riding
experience that thanks to great ergonomics and driver seating position will
make anyone, even a novice rider, feel right at home.
This 2008 Bimota DB6R is perfect. It's a stylish hand built bike that's
ready to go and is a BLAST to ride!
