We have been busy the last 6 months or so building a new combo that will make more power. The motor will be on the dyno soon and we will know just how much more! Big thank you to Ben Alameda at Ben Alameda Racing Engines. He is a true professional and been great to work with us on this project. If you need anything engine related he is your guy. Also big thank you to Mark Winchester of Winchester Metal Works. He laid down some of his art work on a few parts of this build. When it comes to welding there is no one who can lay it down better than him. Check out their facebook pages to see more.
With the car being for sale we want to make sure whom ever purchases the car has a fresh motor. We will be installing a new rotating assembly and doing some head work. The motor will make a significant amount more HP with the upgrades and going to a smaller CI to run the car at a lighter weight. All of which will make the car much more competitive. Who knows if the car does not sell before the season starts you might see us in the lanes….. You never know.
We had the car at Fontana Speedway last weekend trying some different suspension set ups. The car is now dialed in and running great. We are loaded up and ready for SCSN 11 in Las Vegas next weekend. Can’t wait to get back to the track and run in the cool desert air, the cars always run fast at SCSN with the great conditions. This is the biggest race of the year and is always a lot of fun. If you are at the track come by for some Monster Energy drinks.
We had a good test session recently at the Irwindale race track. Working on the front half numbers of the track. Car is back where it should be and running hard. Street Car Super Nationals is next month and we will be ready.
Check out the add on racingjunk.com the car and the complete operation is up for sale.
Check out the NMCA West website and see some great videos and pictures of the cars in action.
With the season rapidly approaching the team is taking care of the regular off season maintenance. The motor and trans are getting a minor freshen up and will be ready in the next few weeks. The car has seen a few minor upgrades since the season ended. With the improvement in performance at the end of last year we are really looking to keep working at the tune up and see how fast this Nova can run. This season should be really exciting and we are looking to make a run at the championship in 2015 with the number 7 on the car. We would like to thank our great sponsors that are returning for another season with team NFE. See you at the track and come by and say hi.
