It's a TV show I guess, anyway, I was messing around watching gasser videos on my phone the other day and ran across this. These 2 guys built a 55 chev gasser with a hemi, electronic FI. They finished it, drove it around the block once, and then took off on a 2500 mile trip to one of the Power Tours. Cheater slicks, rain, several other problems. No speedo, no gas gauge, you guessed it, ran out of gas. It was kinda neat, I'd never really heard of the show.

I enjoy Roadkill, and their crazy projects. I don't always remember to watch it though! I'm still puzzled by the Jim Meyers chassis on the '55 Chevy. Mainly the steering setup Meyers did. Take a look at the angle on that drag link! How they don't have extreme bump steer issues is beyond my understanding?

Anyone see that episode last night yet. It was interesting using the Hellcat engine as a stand alone without the whole harness in the car. The old dart ran pretty good, but Im sure it only takes money to get things done. They didn't have much time to get it done so I guess they had to buy everything to make good time.

No cable here Mario. Cut the cord last year, when they hiked our monthly bill to $200. We're on an antenna now.

They got to the strip and there was some trash talk. Each car got to do a couple trial runs. the Fast n Loud car made a hellacious first run. On the second run something went south and you could have beat them on a skate board. They had a little over an hour to fix the problem. Both cars rolled up to the line, did their burn outs and staged. On the green Aaron was snoozing and the Road Kill car got a good hole shot. The power glide saved their ass because Aaron caught them and drove by them. Even on a 1/4 mile strip I don't think the 2 or 3 stage nitros system on the Road Kill car would have saved them.

Thanks Mario! Enjoyed the videos, and appears Richard Rawlings is as obnoxious as ever. I got where I muted the show every time he was on camera back when we had cable. But Aaron and the GMG guys did build a pretty cool Dart!
