Default Phil Schuler's "other" Car



Owned and built by Massey's CC, driven by "Stevie Fast" Jackson. Ran 4.02 at 191 in the final round $20,000 win at Light's Out 6 in Radial vs. The World competition. That was in addition to winning a $3,000 grudge match against Ron Valden in qualifying.

Not really..... In that kind of racing it's all about keeping a big power car straight on a small tire. Regardless of power adder.

On a small tire, yeah it's all about controlling the power.

But from a pure power aspect, blowers can't be beat. In NHRA ProMod, the most restricted or choked back car are the blower cars. If you lifted all the parity rules, everyone would have to run screw blowers to be competitive.
