My friend Fredy Scriba is ready for the 2021 NEOPMA ProMod season with a Pat Musi 959 CI engine with 6 kits of nitrous. +3,000 HP.

Does that qualify as a "mountain motor". I remember reading something over the last few years about the revival of that class.

No, Mountain Motor is limited to naturally aspirated engines that have about 2000 hp. It is a PDRA class and they run this class at some NHRA events.

ProMod's have power adders,, turbo, nitrous, blower, procharger, etc. Only the nitrous engines allow the big cubes (960 max for now). Most are +3000 hp and a lot faster than the naturally aspirated mountain motor class.

I remember when the GM 502 crate big block sounded huge. My 528" on two stages even makes me feel inferior these days, but I still drive mine on the street.

Sportsman racing is the meat and potatoes of drag racing. The Pro classes get the people to the track. I do enjoy the nitro cars, the power is too impressive to ignore. But the guys who spends their free time and money on their cars are the ones who deserve the accolades. I hope to get to an 1/8 mile with my Dart, for shit and giggles. It will never be a track car, but it would be fun to see what it may be capable of. As I've gotten older, the need for speed has slowly faded. Realizing how much it costs is part of it. Only so many dollars to go around, and I keep buying more cars. :BangHead: I love the saying, "speed costs, how fast you want to go?"

For now.....10.8 ET is fast enough with my Redeye.

I have 2 rear diff kits to put on the Redeye. And I'm looking to get a set of M/T ET or R's for the rear. I believe with the kits and rear tires I can get it to a 10.5 ET.

I have consulted with the Brenton at Forza and I'm waiting a little longer (warranty) before getting the 4R conversion at Forza Tuning and Performance. That will take it to 1100-1200 hp and easily into the low 9's.

Before they quit making racing fuel.....
I was just thinking about all the planes, trains, and boats that are powered by diesel, and how they won't be going away anytime, why target cars? I say burn as many gallons as you can before it's a over.
