TURBO MINI VANS

I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum members. I live in NE Ohio and I am a very good friend of NUTZ. He is the man building the customer rear end for the V. Nutz invited me to come to your forum and so here I am.

I love all cars, I am an avid and I mean AVID Drag Racer. I have been racing for 35 years at the track. At the present time our family owns 7 vehicles. My wife's car is a 2006 Charger R/T in Inferno Red, with the only mods are a K & N CAI, 180 t-stat, .25 cent fan mod. Other than that she is all stock. The 5.7 HEMI has managed to push the 3,989 lb car down the 1/4 mile to a Best of:

.504
1.956
5.686
8.753 @ 79.427
11.347
13.580 @ 103.16

My Vehicle that I race is a silver 1990 Dodge Caravan ES. It has a Turbo-Charged 4 cylinder and has 23 pounds of boost. It has run a best of

.514
1.989
5.583
8.638 @ 81.20
11.239
13.614 @ 101.83

That is the Inter Cooler you see on the front of the Mini Van NOT the radiator.
I am getting ready to run 12.50 this year.........

I look forward to chatting with you and talking cars.

Regards
Chuck

Welcome! Love turbos! I am glad to see someone have some fun with the "flying box" :)

Who was it who pulled up to the drag strip, dumped the family at the gate, pulled up the line and spanked a Z28 with a 12 sec pass in a mid 80's turbo dodge van?

That was a riot!

That was Paul Smith from the Chicago, IL area. His Mini is now the 3rd quickest in the country. The quickest Mini Van Record now belongs to Terry Ryan from Oregon. Here is a link to his run:http://s146.photobucket.com/albums/r251/gasketmaster/?action=view&current=MyFirst11SecondPassWithoutNitrous.flv

This is with a 4 cylinder and NO N20

His Mini does have a 50 shot of Nitrous on it and I will try to find that video for you to see as well.

It is just so mind bending to see a minivan go like that!
