  • My Studebaker Challenger V8 Wheel Stand

    I took my Studebaker Challenger to Muncie Dragway for some tuning before our May 27th Studebaker drags event here at Brown County Dragway in Nashville, Indiana. This is the results. This is a Studebaker V8 I built, and it is Normally Aspirated, no Supercharger, just one four barrel carburetor. Thanks to Ted Harbit for taking the videos, that's not an easy job.
    Enjoy, turn the sound up and watch it on a big screen.

                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                              And to think that there is a great deal made over the fact that the new Dodge Demon will lift its front wheels off the road.
