Larry Larson and Bangshift's Chad Reynolds Unveil Their Drag Week Monstermobile
After sitting on the sidelines for 2013's Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week, five-time Drag Week winner Larry Larson is back with a twin-turbo vengance for 2014. He and partner-in-crime, Bangshift.com's Chad Reynolds, just revealed the vehicle that will strike fear into the hearts of Drag Week's Unlimited Class competitors: a full-on Pro Mod 1998 Chevy S-10 pickup.
Larry and Chad haven't divulged a lot of specs yet, but the story says the S-Dime will have a factory steel roof, cab, and bedisde panels sitting on a Larson-built 25.2-spec tube chassis. The boys don't say what's under the hood, but the teaser photos show a fuel injected big block with twin Precision turbos mounted on each side of the firewall. And big honkin' sidepipes. SIDEPIPES!
According to Larry and Chad, the S-10 was built to the limits of the Unlimited class, of which there are precious few.
"It’s a Pro Mod car, but it has the factory VIN, is way more steel than anyone would believe," Chad explains in the story. "And as Larry and I have both said, they decided Unlimited was going to be Unlimited, so here we go.”
And full confession: Summit Racing knew all about this bad boy from the get-go, and we supplied a bunch of parts to help Larry and Chad get this project off the ground and out onto the highways and race tracks of Drag Week. Because sidepipes.
