MOPAR Hellfire "Lil" Hemi 4 Cylinder Engine
1045 HP @ 25# BOOST 672 FT. LB. TRQ.

Motor by kenny duttweiler.

Some of his major accomplishments in the racing industry include; first Buick Grand National in the 10’s, 9’s, 8’s, 7’s, and 6’s with his personal race car, record holder and 3 time champion Bob Rieger, NHRA world’s fastest door slammer Hurely Blakeney, NMRA champions Racin’ Jason and John Gullet, Car Craft's 200 MPH '93 Mustang Cobra, numerous customer Bonneville records and Silver State record holders all utilizing turbocharged engines. He also races a twin turbocharged Chevrolet powered Olds Cutlass in NHRA Competition Eliminator BB/AT. And of course his crowning achievement is the 2300 HP small block Chevy that powered George Poteet's Poteet and Main streamliner to a staggering 462 MPH at Bonneville. Duttweiler's record speaks loud and clear with the voice of turbocharged thunder.

I don't really follow LSR stuff in any way . so bear with me.

What is to be gained by these attempts , outside of your name in a record book. ?

I can only imagine the financial backing commitment something likes this requires , yet for what. ?

I just watched this .

WOW, just doesn't seem to be enough. And to strap your butt in that at those speeds has to be a rush unlike any other

Speedweek is on my bucket list to see someday.

Pretty incredibly impressive achievement too, when you consider how much power they're claiming for this car. This is a good reminder of how important low aero-drag is to top speed, as Thompson's Challenger One had a lot more power and a lot more drag, was roughly 60mph slower.

Ray - I've seen a few modelers use black rubber o-rings with tyre decals added, and they can be pretty convincing
