SPAL is backing Code Red Drag Racing in its bid to field the quickest street legal ‘57 Chevy in the UK and Europe.
A pair of high performance SPAL fans will be fitted to a one-off custom made radiator built by Collin Reay at Creative Aluminium Fabrication which will enable the car to cope with the rigours of street driving and high speed racing.
The 9 litre twin turbo fuel-injected street legal car is always driven (never put on a trailer) by Rob Slater, the owner, to race at hotrod and custom events including the Street Eliminator class at Santa Pod Raceway.
He says: “Our aim with the fresh tube chassis build is to run 7 second quarter mile times at 200mph and you need the best engine cooling you can get to pull that off.”
Good luck Rob that sounds quite a feat!
Stay tuned for the next instalment in this cool customization.
