Few of u guys might remember that we competed at Santa Pod Raceway last year with our 500cui cast iron wedge E85 eating motor. During the last run we heard a noise we really didn´t like. Long story short. We found water in our oil pan. :(
Back home we took the engine apart and found out that the main bearings where cracked and the walls from 3 cylinders had holes in them. We weren´t happy but still able to say that we got 63 passes out of an old 72 cast iron block the last 4 years.

With knowing that there is no way to actually repair the block the hunt for a new engine was on. My friend stumbled over a 426cui blown Arias Hemi over in the UK and after getting all the cash together he drove over there and picked it up.

Last weekend we did a testfit of the engine and voila "The Stinger" is know housing a 2500hp Blown Alcohol Hemi engine. 8)
Our best time last year was an 8.8 @ 151 mph with the old engine. This year we are looking to actually get into the 7.0 to 7.5sec segment. More to come later this year...

WOW That's awesome! I wish I had the cash and time to race like that but I couldn't even imagine sub 8 sec 1/4 mile that's insane.

The engine is in the car and we did the last checks yesterday before we attend to the first race in Hungary next weekend.
Here is a little video of it:

holy ish mang. You know how I requested that camera shot of you driving around in that slow-ass green POS(camparatively speeking to the stinger of course)? Ok forget that I want to see people reaction to the stinger on the street....

I am not sure its ever been asked, are you the driver?

The car belongs to the shop owner where the restoration of my Charger had been done. He´s the driver.
I´m a proud part of the Team! 8)

Here is a video from the track it´self:

that seems like it would be alot to handle but that 2nd angle damn that thing looked nice smooth/straight. I would still need to wipe...... I can remember when I had my sportbike that when I got on it it felt like I was doing little more then hanging on, can't imagine what that thing would feel like.

This track is only prepared until the 1/8 Mile. After that it´s only concrete. Lost alot of time because of that. We are looking forward to get on a fully prepared 1/4 Mile track by mid of May. 8)

that is even more impressive then. I remember you mentioning that there were not any strips close that can handle that thing. Is drag racing almost as popular there as soccer is here? I know that the europeans love almost any kind of racing from go-carts to semi-trucks, just seems like a dragstrip would be one of the easier to set up....

If u would take tenthousand people over here u will probably find 2 within them that know dragracing. That´s how unpopular this sport is over here. That´s why there are no strips arround here. The problem with that sport is that it´s one of the loudest on the planet. And noise is something the older generations can´t stand over here. :roll:

The next event will happen on the 13th of may at the Raba Ring in Hungary. This will be a fully prepared track then and we can rule out all the mistakes that happend this weekend.

noise? Good lord any race I have ever been to from the big-winged outlaws to F1 left me and my friends with earplugs in making hand gestures to communicate. At least in drag racing its a few mins at a time rather then hours on end.

See now I wish rally racing was bigger here but we have 3-4 drag strips with in a couple of hours with beach bend raceway in bowling green being equipped for cars like yours. In phoenix we had 2 strips, both top-fuel rated and top-notch places, any semi-big city here has one.

sounds like an automatic to me. How come he doesn't load the converter? I assume the car has a trans brake.
certainly the car must garner a lot of attention in your neck of the woods. definately a unique car for sure.
