  1. You ever consider having the return go to the feed basket on the driver's side? We have the return from our 1500 pump going right back into the basket and we can run at WOT with wheels up 9.8 at the drag strip with as little as 4 gallons of fuel.
  2. We did a 12 page story on building the ultimate TH400 drag race transmission for late model HEMI race cars. As a Mopar guy, I learned a lot during this project, thought I'd share it with you all: http://www.moparmax.com/tech/2016/xi_9-into_the_9s_part_3-1.html
  3. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 21 September 2016 ALEX “THE CAR GIRL” ROGEO GETTING BACK TO FORM AT NMCA WEST RACE Attached photo courtesy Tim Marshall Fontana, CA – After a promising start to the 2016 season Alex Rogeo’s Liquid Glow MAHLE race car ran into gremlins in late spring and summer. With lots of help from her current racing partners like Magnuson Superchargers and from a new partner, American Racing Solutions, Alex and her team were finally able to concentrate on racing rather than repairs. From the first lap of practice on Friday afternoon, the team knew that the new high performance belt tensioner from American Racing Solutions (ARS) was not only contributing to keeping the supercharger belt intact; it was producing higher manifold pressure. “[My crew chief] Richard and the folks at Magnuson spent days working on the car before this race,” said Alex. “Magnuson engineered adaptors to convert our single serpentine belt drive into a two-belt drive system. This reduced the strain on the main belt. And then the ARS tensioner not only tamed any belt misbehavior, it increased the belt’s grip and that increased boost.” The NMCA West Street Car Nationals were held in very hot conditions. On race day Sunday it was 104F degrees with track temps nearing 150F. But with no need to worry about belts or electrical gremlins the team quickly found the setup for the conditions. “The car is actually making more power now than it was earlier in the year,” said Richard Kratz. “Hedman Hedders used our car to make 2” long tube headers designed for a big, power adder late model HEMI like our blown 426ci Arrington Performance engine. And the new ARS tensioner produced 1.4 pounds more boost than we’d ever made before. So more air in and out and this car ran strong in this heat. We were running 9.8s to 9.9s with a DA of 4,000 feet and this car weighs over 4,000 pounds. That’s getting it done.” Alex competed in three races over the weekend, separate bracket races on Saturday and Sunday and the Quick Street class point’s race on Sunday. Alex lost the Saturday bracket race by .0019 seconds, which indicates how close the racing is in this class. On Sunday, Alex was again on the wrong side of a super close race, this time losing out by a mere .0013 seconds. In round one of the Quick Street race, Alex paired up with defending class champion, Jeff Interlicchia. Alex cut a .001 light and ran 9.953 on her 9.95 dial to win the round with a .004 package. “That first round against Jeff was the highlight of the weekend for me,” said Alex. “He’s such a good racer; you have to bring your best game when you face off with him. Just to have a car again that can do that, and to be able to drive it like that again is a great feeling.” Alex’s race came to an end in round three with a .006 red light. She is now in sixth place with one race left. While not mathematically eliminated, the odds are very long. But the team is feeling good, they’re happy to have a well running car and be able to mix it up with great racers again. Alex thanked all of her marketing partners, “We have so many great performance industry leaders as our partners that I feel very lucky to have. Companies like MAHLE Aftermarket and MAHLE Motorsports, Arrington Performance, Westminster Performance Transmission, Manley Performance, Diablosport, LAT Oil, Champion Spark Plugs, shopHEMI.com, Mickey Thompson Tires, Hedman Hedders, Driveshaft Shop, Bell Racing, Mountain View Performance, Weld Racing, AEM Electronics, American Racing Solutions and Big John’s Performance.” Consumer Contact Information: AlexTheCarGirl.com

  8. Car ran great all weekend, new PB of 10.25 (at 3000 DA) and 60 foot of 1.33-1.35. Made it to the fourth round. A photographer took this shot in the early morning and it came out nicely. Last race for the 6.4L/NAG1 combo. We're heading out on Tuesday for Martinsville, VA. Next up, 426 stroker and TH400. We have three years, 15,000 street miles and 600+ passes (with 14 pounds of boost) on the current Arrington engine and it's still running like a Swiss watch.
  9. it's official, we're rebuilding Alex's motor this winter as an Arrington Performance 426 stroker and replacing her NAG1 with a TH400 manual valve body. We are selling her completely fresh NAG1 with associated parts. Her NAG1 was hand blueprinted for her last week by Westminster Performance Transmission. Co-owner Mike Piraino, a California certified mechanical engineer, personally built this trans. The internals are the best of everything, custom drums to take 7 clutch disks/steels in all three assemblies instead of the factory 4 disks. Specially coated pump plate for tighter tolerance and higher, more consistent line pressure. Special clutches and lots of Mercedes AMG parts. Mopar provided Alex the valve body, modified for a racing late model power adder car. Blue top solenoids, special springs and pistons, etc. Mike took stacks of new disks and clutches and measured them individually with a mic to build the clutch packs not to be within a good tolerance, but for the whole stack to be exactly at the .001" of optimal tolerance. When I say hand built by a 722/NAG1 guru, that's exactly what this is. This transmission is built to handle 800+ horsepower and torque all day long, year in and out. The trans is completely refreshed and better than new as I write this. We did 11 passes at the famous Street Car Super Nationals in Las Vegas last year. Basically, we broke it in and QA tested it; WPT builds bulletproof transmissions. Also included in the sale is a brand new FTI Performance 3200/3400 stall converter with all billet interior parts, it too has only 11 passes. FTI was featured in our magazine, so you can read all about how they built their converters here: http://www.moparmax.com/tech/2015/x_...ormance-1.html Like the trans, this converter is hand built for a late model power adder HEMI car. Best of everything. Lastly, we're also including a B&M SFI flexplate and their deep pan and the matching Mopar TCM, which has been paired with this transmission. $5,000 for everything, firm. If you're in Southern California, then WPT can install everything for you. If you're out of state, you'll have to pay freight and we'll only charge whatever the actual freight costs.
  10. Wait a moment. Where can you get a take off NAG1 for $500??? We need a spare badly!!! Please PM or let me know here!
  11. I have to vote for the 3.55s. The difference from 3.06 is mega! Our SRT8 came with 3.06 and with 3.55s the car is a never ending giggle machine. We have 3.50 gears now because with a 9" rear your only choice is 3.50 or 3.60. But you won't regret it!
  12. I highly suggest looking at LAT ATF fluid. We got turned onto them in the course of working for our magazine by Allen and Roy Johnson (2012 NHRA Pro Stock World Champion). They torture the hell out of engine oil and said that LAT's oil was the best they'd seen and credited it as partially responsible for their championship. Then we talked to some Pro Mod racers and discovered that just about all of the torque converter Pro Mod racers are now using LAT ATF. Pro Mod twin turbo torque converter race cars load up the TC at 6000+ RPM in the lights and routinely see temps at the top end of the track of 600F (!) We started using the LAT ATF in our race car after we lost a race due to fluid heating. It used to be as the fluid heated during the course of a race (and of course the more you win the more they hot lap you back to the lanes for the next round) our driver, Alex had to try to compensate for the car as it's reaction time would slow down as the ATF heated. We data log everything on the car and can measure the car's RT very precisely. Well, one final round it slowed down so much that even though Alex bumped in a little deep she still was stuck with a .050 RT and lost. Once we started running LAT ATF we never looked back. It ignores the temp and the car is dead consistent no matter what. And the Pro Mod guys say they went from changing ATF every four passes to being able to do two whole race weekends on the same oil. That's huge, it really shows how well the stuff endures and protects. We rebuild the NAG1 this summer after 300+ passes with about 800 horsepower and it showed no burning on the clutch disks at all. Worth looking into. We have an article about it in the magazine: http://www.moparmax.com/tech/2012/vii_11-atf-1.html
