ArmDrop Live at No Problem Raceway
Watch in High Quality, it's way better. Anyway, I made a little video from
the footage I took when ArmDrop Live came down to No Problem Raceway in
Belle Rose, LA. It's really better watching this in high quality.
Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - /BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a
look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is
Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one
of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends
the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail
order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about
everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult -
a work of art however... that'd be just fine.
The Ranchero Returns! Alaska or Bust: The Sequel - Roadkill Episode 13
On this episode of Roadkill, the boys reignite their desire to go Ice
Racing in Alaska! If you remember episode 2 of Roadkill, Freiburger and
Finnegan hit the road in a '68 Ford Ranchero with a wild goal: to drive
3,600 miles from Los Angeles, California, to Big Lake, Alaska, to go ice
racing. Somehow, they instead found themselves in the bottom of the Grand
Canyon. You really need to check out Episode 2 to understand the level of
fail that has chased these guys. But now, 14 months later, the guys are
trying it again. The Ranchero's engine was freshened up and reinstalled
just days before the second attempt. The goal: to run the ALCAN Highway on
the way to the ice races with the Alaska Sports Car Club outside of
Anchorage in Big Lake, Alaska. Will they get it done this time? Watch to
For those interested in tech specs, the '68 Ranchero is powered by a 363ci
small-block Ford that's based on a big-bore Dart SHP block; the bore and
stroke is 4.125x3.400. It has 9.3:1 compression, Dart 195cc heads, and a
hydraulic roller cam with 232/244 duration at 0.050, .565/.580 lift, and a
114-degree LSA. The engine made 471 hp at 6,200 rpm and 451 lb-ft at 4,500.
The trans is a Gearstar C4. The car's biggest problem is the 2.80:1 gears
in the 8-inch rearend. That's too high for a heavily loaded car with a big
cam, but they were used to keep rpm down during the trip to Alaska.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
