1970 Dodge Ute Drag Race (Dragzilla)
Last updated Mar 8, 2007
This car is an Ex Super Gas racer from the years 1987 to 1997. Previously powered by a 286ci Chrysler Hemi 6 cylinder, running Methanol, single turbocharger with around 10 psi boost. Car consistantly ran 10.5 @120MPH through those years all of which were run in Queenslands Drag stips. Now with me in Melbourne I have fitted a twin cam Nissan 6 cylinder (RB20DET). Engine is internally standard at the moment with the only mods are all external. It runs a T3/T4 turbo with a modified exhaust housing for a straight through wastegate (check out the pics). Autronic SMC looks after the fuel and ignition. Car has glass doors and bonnet the rest is still steel but there is not much of that left. It's left hand drive and has a 2"X3" box chassis.
