i thought id consolidate my car, car club & racing videos into a youtube channel i made Concorde racing

i did a Dyno day event


I do a lot of 1/8 mile racing at hypoxia dragway its a small "po-dunk" raceway in Evanston Wyoming.

https://airdensityonline.com/track-results/Hypoxia_Dragway/

that site has the best collection of info, its the highest in the nation @ 6500 something feet.

I get a solid 10.5-10.7 average 1/8
a few runs at the 1/4 got me 13.2xx, 13.4xx my only 2 1/4 runs.
I dyno'd at 219hp to the wheels. torque stats were errors. (14tq and 19tq) they blamed the car lurching forward when "getting on it"

with my LSD I bought a pair or Hankook racing slicks and get some okay burnouts. I need to setup some line-locks to hold the back tires for a better warmup of the slicks. i.e. burnouts the e-break lets the wheels turn.

my buddy juan has a 5.7 challenger with intake and exhaust. V6 vs V8 4speed vs 6 speed.

the track does brackets and this one captured a nice burnout on the drivers side tire.
watch the tack @ 4 seconds in. you can see the high stall torque converter working.


I got sponsored by Phantom grip for a LSD, and had my transmission & differential completely overhauled (and LSD installed). trans has heavy duty clutches, and a shift kit (springs, and another clutch somewhere) that's the white banner on my windshield.

one of my new hobbies is video editing, adobe premier. and I did an adventure film of Bonneville of my and the salt city mopars. a lot of the club really enjoyed it.

I did some more one off ****..
Phantom Grip LSD
I used -6AN lines and a FAT transmission cooler
completed the 300m Special interior with the special PCM. (out at Bonneville I got to 126 before I pussyd' out but the car wanted to keep going, 128 ??)
bought new "300m special" springs, had them powder coated hemi orange and made new struts with new old stock OEM struts and Monroe isolators.

right now im winterizing (snow tires) and block/battery heater so there will be nothing for the next 6 months or so next year I ave grand junction Co and firebird raceway in Idaho, and maybe Las Vegas speedway, it had an event when I as there at beginning of October. some old footage will get edited and uploaded over winter.

Enjoy!

I am so glad to see some one doing this. If you had a 1G I would not hesitate to send you my stash of rare but useless parts I can not find myself throwing away.
