Wild In-Car Drag Week Video
« on: September 12, 2013, 11:15:13 AM »
Jeff Lutz's 57 Chevy runs low 7s in Unlimited.  Watch the first video at the link below; the in-car video shows the steering wheel coming off in the middle of the pass!  Unbelievable stuff...

Makes sense but they never mentioned "boost pressure" or if they even had a gauge. Sadly you get the feeling the object was simply to see what (5) blowers would do. I have that same model Husky Blower, my inclination is it is made for volume not pressure. Just holding your hand over the outlet indicates it can not build pressure.  One thing that might have been interesting is to run the blowers in line, not to add volume but make pressure and see if ithey could build boost. Where/How they dealt with all the 2-stroke exhaust is not shown.
