Engine Specs:
The Merlin steel headed big block Chevy, swings 6.4:1 Arias pistons around a forged GM crank with Venolia V2 rods. A Littlefield retro 6-71 blower feeds the engine its 90-92% nitro mix from the Rage 21 gallon fuel pump. Titan oil system keeps the Lucas 70wt oil flowing. Power is transmitted through an 11 inch Crowerglide clutch, mated to a 3 speed B&J transmission. The 34.5x17 Goodyear Eagle slicks on Weld Alumastar Beadlock wheels are rotated through a 4.30 rear gear.
We're getting ready for our 16th season in 2019. The 1977 Firebird body that was stretched and tweaked exclusively by Jeff Bradt made it's debut in October 2017. The PPG Radianace Kandy Orange Glo over silver metallic and PPG black with Radiance gold metal flake was applied by Jeff along with all the finish body and fab work. The team that consists of owner Keith Davidson and crew of, Jeff Bradt, Ron Cocca, Jeremy Rorick, Deb, Alex and Justin Davidson have been ably assisted by veteran fuel tuner Gene Amaya. Genes invaluable and generous advice has given the team a solid, reliable tune up to work with. It is a 30+ year dream come true for Keith that all started 15 years ago with a primered small block powered funny car.
