2016! Here comes the PAIN!

That's right race fans!  Been a long time coming but the car is oh so close. No more major pieces for us to wait on. We are down to time and hard work. The guys at JPC Racing are killing it!  We have gotten the car all set up. Big parts are all installed and mounted. The RGR power plant is perfectly tucked between the frame rails backed by an ATF Speed th400 trans. ATF also hooked us up with a badass set of Motor plates and one of their bolt-together converters. With 3 speeds to push we can't wait to throw the boost to it. Big Stuff 3 has been amazing to work with, we will be using a BS3 computer with their coils and traction control!  We are excited as well to be using their new boost controller as well.

 

Feather Carbon did an amazing job on the body parts for our car. All are available directly from us or through JPC. We were able to get the car down to 2300 lbs with most everything in the car. By the time we add the drive and fluids and balance the weight for us to meet minimums we should have a perfectly balanced bullet! 

 

We have updated the photo gallery as well, take a peek and check out the amazing work Rich Groh did on that motor!  It's a Ford GT super car 5.4L 32v Dry Sump motor. It has a billet crank, custom rods and pistons and is set up to rotate to a fever pitch!  Shout out to Bullet for our custom cams, PAC Springs for some killer pieces, and Jesel for the parts to keep the top end humming. ACCUFAB chains and tensioners keep everything lined up.   The custom intake will be on top with an ACCUFAB TB and PTE 225# injectors! 

DJ Safety took great care of everything on this beast. With us pushing low 4 second runs in the 1/8th mile and over 200 mph in the full 1/4 we wanted the best. 2 air launched parachutes, 2 10lb fire systems, all the diapers and drivers safety gear will make sure should something go wrong we are protected.

 

Well we will finish getting it ready and be back to report soon!  Stay tuned the PAIN TRAIN is COMING
