1320 ft in 6 seconds

Last night I went over to my buddy’s house to borrow a tool- this is in his garage just a few blocks from me. We grew up building cars in high school and this is where he took it 30 years later. It’s a 7/8 scale ‘57 Chevy NHRA Pro Mod. He’s a member of the Chicago Wiseguys. He fires it up in his driveway to test stuff. Last night he was testing the trans brake. 3,600HP and low 6 second passes in the quarter mile. The engine, heads and intake manifold are custom CNC fabricated from blocks of billet aluminum. The twin turbo charged, alcohol injected 572 builds 30 lbs. of boost at the line with a timing retard system that produces immense back firing until you let go of the launch button- you can hear it for blocks. He pulls .096 second 60 ft times! He’s shooting for high 5 second runs this summer. -Fun stuff.
