The VGR 440 cu in blown motor in NRKA leader Billy B's K-boat has been pumping massive power for over 9 years. Click here or on the photo to see a video of Billy making a radar run of 141 mph against the river current.
All custom engines built by VanGordon's are pre-run for a minimum of 20 minutes prior to installation to ensure peak performance.
If you don't like the feel of your car on the road or track, a chassis modification may be all you need. A vehicle that is handling at peak performance should be reliable and easy to control under power whether during cornering, braking, or acceleration. Getting the power of your engine to the ground depends on the right chassis and suspension setup. Without the appropriate setup, a powerful engine can place an intense amount of strain on parts and cause wheel hop or spin, or worse yet, parts breakage.
A well set up chassis will perform to your expectations time and time again. For an example, click here.
