Well, they did it again! The Rad Rides/Poteet team has shattered a twenty-five year old record with the world famous "Blowfish"! Five passes were made this year at the salt flats, all of them were over 300mph! A new record was set at 307.399 in B, Blown Fuel Competition Coupe with Danny Burrows at the wheel. Top run was 315.913mph with an exit speed of 319.260mph.
This put the Blowfish into the Bonneville history book as one of the fastest production cars on the salt!
A compilation of historic wrecks...from 1931, to just the other day. You've
never seen anything like this before. Very rare footage. MUSIC by the HOT
To the men who paved the way in motorsports; to your bold attempts at
dodging fate: We salute you.
RideTech Testimonial - Troy Trepanier - BlowFish
In 2011 Ridetech had the opportunity to sit down with several customers and
discuss their opinion of our products, sales, and service. Here is what
Troy Trepanier had to say about Ridetech shocks on the BlowFist project.
RadRides by Troy Blowfish on the dyno
The Blowfish is a 1969 Cuda,built at Rad Rides by Troy to compete at the
Bonneville Salt Flats. It has a higher ratio rear end gear in theses Dyno pulls,so that it
isnt running 300 m.p.h. but it still had a rear wheel speed of 170m.p.h.
and made 1118 h.p and 1280 ft lbs of torque at the rear wheels with only 10
pounds of Boost!
'62 bubble top
This is a 1962 Chevy Bel Air Bubble top owned by Randy Wilcox. Rad Rides
by Troy did some chassis modifications, build custom floor pans, re-did
quarterpanel, and all the rest of the body smoothing including tucking the
bumpers. This one sports an LS9 from a new ZR1 Corvette.
