Dodge Challenger Slow motion Wheelie
1974 Dodge Challenger Slomo Wheelie vid. Santa Pod 2010 eurofinals. By Blackett Photography. Here the car is powered by a 572ci Wedge motor. Runs mid 9's @ full weight (3850lb +). To make the caltracks work you need plenty of front end lift, bump stops were removed and frames notched to get almost 6 1/2 inches of travel. Something Chrysler never designed that suspension for I'd guess. We've since improved the bump steer by replacing parts and resetting the camber / castor as the front has aftermarket parts and plenty of adjustment.
In reality it's difficut to fully eliminate without going to a strut type front end, though some people appear to have done it on stock stuff, it seems to be a common chrysler trait. Check out the superstock video's from the '70s and most Mopars do it also check out my other real time wheelie vids you see that the wobble lasts only a fraction of a second.
Thanks for the comments.
ITS ALIVE!!!! 1977 Chevy Monza Drag Car - First Drive
Hopewell Valley Central High School Auto Club Drag Car. It has been in production for 2 years, and this was the first time it was driven under its own power. It has a built small block Chevy 350 .030 over, Vortec heads, pretty radical cam (flat tappet, hydraulic), Holley 750 carb, Edelbrock rpm air gap Vortec intake. Trans is a TH-200M. Broken in properly, this is the first drive after it was completed. We'll be racing it at Englishtown this summer.
HOTROD CADILLAC #2
Got the new powerplant in for the '07 and i was determined to put the Coupe into the 9 second zone. Its gone a best of 9.85 @ 135.37 untuned but i had to slow it down to 10 flat to run my class. This was the 3rd pass with the new motor.
