This is the end game for Double Trouble - A tribute car to an old racer friend Ray Beraducci - who got me started and helped me learn - this was his old car which I bought and turned into the DoubleD - its long gone - Ray passed away a few years back - we talked about doing a clone of the original Hefty - I just wish Ray was still around to see it.

It will be a fun journey to the remaking of the HEFTYHEMI.

This year will be sorting out the Wedge and the car to make sure all is good and ready for the Hemi transplant and more then likely over next winter will be the complete transformation to the Hefty.

Well here is an update on project double trouble – We got the car out last fall after a series of set-backs for a couple of passes and quickly realized we had the wrong converter and gear – we had used a 9” ATI we had on the parts shelf – it had nowhere near the stall we need and with a 4:10 gear it only compounded the problem the car was a mid-11 second ride with that combo – so over the winter we put in our spare an 8” ATI and a new 4;56 gear – took the car out to Quaker over the weekend and it definitely liked that combo with a 10.77 @125 with 1.45 sixty foot wheels up! - pretty much where I thought it would run with the factory cross-ram and 34 degrees timing. Not bad for a 3800+ lb whale with a full factory interior on cal tracks and 9” slicks. A little tuning will probably net a tenth or so – maybe add an INDY bathtub cross-ram somewhere down the line and that would put it solid and cover the 10.50 index. But this engine will be short lived in the car - the 572 HEMI is being built at BEST Machine and will replace the 512 sometime later this year – as it becomes a replica of the Hefty HEMI. But for now Russ will race the car at Bowling Green this weekend as the strictly business 63 is not ready yet.

Time for an update - the car has been real consistent so far this year even with two different drivers. The 512 wedge has a factory cross ram and - likes to stay in the 10.65 - to 10.75 range with a MPH at 128 - the converter is not quite right for the car - but it works for now. Not bad for a 3800 lb car with a full interior - there is more ET in this combo - but its time to take it out and move on with Plan B - The HEMI ! The engine is almost complete - Best machine got the nod - and I am thrilled so far! It will be on the dyno soon.

Well the HEMI is Home and in the engine bay - Lots of work yet to go - new torque converter, headers to get coated - add a few bars to the roll bar to make it a cage - probably going to change the rear suspension to a ladder bar - and hopefully get the rest of the car painted before spring!

The HEMI made 870 HP at 6900 rpm and 740 ft-lbs at 5600 rpm with two box stock 800cfm eddies - I am more than happy with those numbers! Best Machine built a durable killer engine!

This car started as a budget build - that concept got lost somewhere along the way! But we are having some fun!

Nice build. Close to mine. My 528' Hemi made 853@7100 & 691@5400 but mine is a 10.5:1 Pump gas street engine. My car will be mostly strip but will still street cruise it.

It's all FUN and can't wait until next spring!!! drive

You know an injector stack would look cool - but with electronic fuel injection - is that legal in FX??

2018 is shaping up to be an interesting and fun year. The project is awesome and the build post has been very entertaining. Looking forward to rejoining friends for a safe and fun season.
