It does haul the mail for sure. The guys that tune and drive the car are a bunch of cool guys. Very personal and down to earth. Had a chance to talk to them at Street Outlaws in Denver this summer.

For sure we met them in Boise Idaho. He let my 13 year old son sit in the car.

He’s not the best on the tree (cutting good lights) but if he get to be he will be almost unstoppable


1970 Duster
Edelbrock headed 408
6.143@110.85 mph
9.73@135.05 mph shifting at 6700 RPM
422 Indy headed small block
5.982@112.56 mph
9.42@138.27

Livin and lovin life one day at a time

Seems like the only thing the driver really needs to focus on is the tree, since the shifting is automated. Burns out, stages, then holds on to the steering wheel with both hands.

Regardless, that thing flies.


An unskilled person with a "cool idea", a bunch of porting tools, and a set of cylinder heads is a sure recipe for disaster.
I AM that person!

Yes it does buy in the NPK series he has lost by being dead late several times. All the power in the world can’t make up for dead late in heads up racing

If I remember correctly the car weighs 3100#’s. That is heavy.

Cutting down the tree is always a must no matter what form of drag racing you are doing.

Jack French is the vehicle owner and is a local to our area. "Atomizer Injectors". My son has met the guy and he is a REAL Mopar dude. Hats off to anybody that can make a heavy car competitive in that field..

When they were here at RT66 they were having issues with the car. They told me they went from a 2 spd to a 3 spd and where trying to get the bugs worked out. As said before,very nice people. Any kid that was looking at the car was asked if they wanted to get in. I told him he had the only true mopar on the property racing, a Challenger with a Hemi in it.

Jack has someone else drive and tune the car but he's building a second car - a Stratus I believe - that he's going to drive. I've been to his shop a few times and bought several sets of injectors from him. He's as nice in person as he seems on TV.

Would love to see pictures of the new ride when they are available. You don’t see many people making or running high end high horsepower cars. I’m sure it will be nice and fast. Thanks

The power it takes to overcome all that cars obstacles to speed is amazing to me. Flat front, high off the ground, short wheelbase ect, and still runs like a promod. Absolutely amazing from a power management standpoint.
