So what do you do for a fuel tank in one of these 4-link conversions?.... you ask! Custom made 15 gallon in the trunk with a 2500hp rated Aeromotive brushless external pump.. what else? B2C05228-0578-4ABD-803E-7C37A305A229.jpeg E478BC22-631D-4EE8-B197-03B8B38DF81C.jpeg

I had no idea that this was you...


I bow down to you good sir, please teach me your ways! I at you with a humble 2.72 pulley, 1050x injectors, a BAP and a whole lotta burnt rubber caked in my fender wells.

Haha. Thank you. Well we got the caked rubber in common. That’s something! That Video was us in Kentucky last June. Between the Chinese Virus and the Arizona heat we’ve been locked down since then. But... there’s a big Hellcat callout at the Red List race in Bakersfield, California on December 5th. That will be our next time on track and Stinky is already back in the shop getting ready to better that performance by a bunch. Immediately after that race, we go in for the same 4-link I’m showing off in this red car. That car is the one in that video with me. We are both running out of the shop in Phoenix and both cars will be set up the same except for the motors. Mine will remain supercharged while he will likely be going twin turbos.

It’s not what they did to the car. That is beyond what came before to the extent that’s it’s a full blown race car out of the box. It’s what they did to the 50+ people who were on the list to get one for the last year. After calling them to confirm that they were in fact racers and still wanting to get one to put on the track.... they pulled the rug out from under them to do another round of advertising and said first come first serve.... again. The real first come were the people who had already gotten in line and waited for over a year. This time around it was open to connected dealers who were only looking to put a markup on the price. If they really gave a damn about the so called “grass roots“ racers, they would make them per order and not limit them to a specific number to jack the price up for collectors.

So.... back to what’s going on in the shop and not manufacturing politics. Here is the new 15 gallon tank in place and you can see the cover over the cut out that allows the differential to move with the suspension. Because the IRS diff is fixed, there is no need for space above. Not the case with the live axle so the overhead had to be increased some. 7C256272-ADF9-4A04-B04B-C6B0EE3AE583.jpeg

I think it's funny how people call the first generation muscle cars dinosaurs and out dated but yet we keep going back to some of the things they came factory with . CID, live axle , 15 inch wheels .

You must be putting a 750 double pumper on it and a dual points distributor

this is exactly what happened i was told the decision was last minute from corporate and they thought that was the only fair way to do it,i did have a conversation with srt and said these should only be sold to people with comp licences it would have weeded out the dealers and speculators and been sold to racers so they can be seen at the track ,i did wind up ordering one and i am very happy about it but i just wish dodge would cater to the hardcore racers more. i had my name on the list since december last year sent articles and racing channel video interviews, pics of stacks of over 1500 timeslips from my demon racing,my wife videos of her racing her redeye,record run videos of the demon and it still came down to who answered an e mail faster than the next guy.

Haha. If I was following the same line as the suspension that would be the case. Fortunately our engines are actually a improvement. When you look back at what those dual carb Hemi race motors made back then it’s just pitiful compared to now.

No kidding right . I use to build and tweak carburetors then when I got into EFI I looked back and wondered how the old " controlled fuel leaks" actually worked as well as they did .

So no more ice box. Since it is full race your tune probably has no or little timing pull when it is blasting down the track.

So what do you do when you have a 15” conversion and want a bad ass street tire that will work on the dyno? This. 😝 6F0431F4-E35B-4275-92E3-90EAD68A9576.jpeg

As fun as those are, it’s actually out of necessity. They are exactly the same size as the 315/60-15 Radial Pro I’m running. 30 tall by 12 wide. The race tires are no bueno on the dyno so I need something that is going to be the same diameter for gearing and be able to put the power down to the roller. Looks like it would make a great street tire too.
