I was wondering when someone was gonna go on pinks with a 240. looks like a lotta work, but should be worth it. Do you know what it is going to be up against yet?

You should hide nitrous in the cage. They would never know what hit them.

07-04-2006, 11:38 PM
all details of the engine and times and stuff will be released after the show is taped... I am going to throw up some more pictures tomorrow... that engine just fits so damn nice in there!

wow thats awesome, with a crazy build like that you're gonna have to be giving up some lengths after the first run. good luck. :burnrubber0:

Niiiiiiiiiiice. I like it.

As for the show and the 'racing':

Can you run a dual tune on a LSx ECU???

If so, consider it...so you don't have to pedal the thing to sandbag a little(it's part of the game).

Then, switch to the hot program, and kill 'em on the last run.

Kind of like the turbo cars messing with the boost controller, hold some back to ensure a win when it counts.

That is the way we pitched the idea, using an import shell with a domestic engine. Hybridynamics is one of the shops that is involved in the Pinks project. Jay was nice enough to donate the whole car, which in turn was a rust bucket so it was easy to just cut everything out!

Looks like a sweet project. I'm trying to hide my disdain for that show.

Why the Ford 8.8"? I've bent one of those axles before. Are there different internals and axles available to make them beast?

Not to sure on that one, just know the taping date.

We wanted a 9" but the 8.8 was donated to us. We had custom axles made for the car, should be quite beastly!

wow! just awesome.

hope u do better than the other imports that have been on the show.(the recent Z, both civis, etc)

although ur build is BADASS!!!... i sure would like to see an import with an import motor in it. but i guess i'll take what i can and hope that u kick some domestic ass. by the looks of it u definitely have the potential to.

good luck.

Awesome work fellas, the 23rd is creeping around. Not fond of tube chassis' but I'm sure Pinks has the right competition for your build!

AWESOME WORK! I cannot wait to see it :auto:

I think Pinks would have been more interesting if they just used the tree let them negotiate for dial-in. Atleast that way there wouldn't be any whining over leaving early. I'd like to know how fast the cars are going and the driver's RT.

I don't really like Pinks but I set my DVR to record that should. Best of luck to you. Kudos on doing something different with a 240. Ohhh yah, and please don't be one of the tools who shows up without ever shaking the car down. :)

so since it is past the 23rd, I'm assuming that the race is over. can you say what you were up against and the result? or would that ruin the anticipation for us all.

You guys can't seriously be bashing on 0100. If you guys really think thats a good show I think we should be bashing you. Hokeyest(SP?) BS I've ever seen. My buddies and I always yell at the TV when its on. I agree that pulling or adding power through the various methods is fine but not starting on a tree, running no ET or Trap and worst of all giving car lenghts is the dumbest sht ever.

they are exactly why the drag race crowd gets into it. drag racing becomes very boring very fast without such added nonsense. (at least to a TV audience- be honest)

i just dont see the point in saying anything like "i hate drag racing" in a thread only about drag racing, seems kind of azzholish

Pretty much stock engine with a mild cam. Never got a good nitrous run since the tune was a little messed up. The engine had 219k on it, it came from a tow truck that was flooded out. The car was fast because of its low weight and good suspension setup.

Never took it down the track for a time slip. If I had to guess i would say mid 10's all motor.
