This is DIRT's 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour entry. We have spent over 2 1/2 years working on this car. We want to thank AMB for the 2015 late model ride, which along with recycling our 2015 drag car, freed up the time to construct this years entry.

We bought the 1987 F-40 chassis from a police auction. It was a drug seizure with a blown motor from trying to outrun the police. The engine is a used 820 cubic inch, dry-sumped, all aluminum, Ford style BOSS Nine Hemi prototype from Jon Kasse. It has twin turbos and a cross manifold. It also has both port and direct fuel injection. The Ferrari manu-matic trans has been reduced from 5 speeds to 3, to increase gear strength.

It has done several test runs with the best being 5.99 seconds at 225.8 MPH with wisdonm driving.

Ferrari F-40 Pro Mod

Because of all the added equipment and aluminum floor, weight has increased almost 200 lbs to 2,625 lbs. The engine produces 2,420 rwhp.

Some of the highlights are:

1. All aluminum 820 cubic inch dry sump block. It contains many titanium parts and housings.

2. Aluminum Ford Boss style hemi heads by Kasse.

3. Twin 100 mm computer controlled turbos that blow 34 lbs of pressure.

4. Magnesium cross-ram intake manifold.

5. Two injectors per cylinder. One in the intake runner and one sprays directly into the cylinder, ala a sprint car engine.

6. Reverse-flow cooling with inline electric water pumps.

7. Crank-triggered adjustable computer controlled ignition with individual coils.

8. Computer controlled compressed CO2 cooled inter-coolers and radiators.

9. Ferrari based computer controlled, auto shifting, three-speed trans-axle allows wider/stronger gears. This has the latest F-1 software which allows gear shifts in 40 milliseconds. It also has launch control which can be turned off.

10. Computer controlled six disc clutch.

11. Titanium roll cage and frame rails.

12. 4 inch Titanium tube axles with sliding trunions replace the stock axles and CV joints.

13. GM licensed Magnetic Fluid Shocks in the rear, which have three settings. One is a 98% lock up at 1/2 throttle opening, manual 98% lock, and computer controlled.

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.
