Overall, I am very happy with the Atlas performance. It makes a ton of bottom end power. It sound great, and looks cool. Very fun platform. If you are looking for something that makes cheap easy reliable horsepower, it is not the best option, but if you want something that is unique, but takes a lot of work and makes decent power, it's a great option.

Look at the way it bends the leaf spring!

It was great getting to talk to you and hearing tips from you. The car looks and sounds amazing, and has the performance to back it up. I'm excited to see what you come up with next!

I would really like to see how it reacts to E85.

We run just about all the race cars on Flex fuel. It can be anywhere from 51% to 85%. The particular batch that we had in the Stude at this time just so happened to be E85. 

It's really cool because we have a flex fuel sensor on the cars, and it will detect the ethanol content on the fly and automatically change the tune to compensate for it.

The intelligent discussion between runs is worth the price of admission, whether you have an Atlas or not. I'm a big fan of the way you work.

Agreed. The dyno guy seems cool as hell too-and looks like he could dead-lift that Studebaker!

With your knowledge I'd really like to see what you could do with a V12. It's a little older design than the 6 cylinder but it's sure well built. ( well except for the EFI ).

10,200 RPM now cheeky

 

EDIT: EBP vs BP discussion was great. Also is it telling that hat guy/dyno owner? goes and stands far away each pull???

He leaves the building when we dyno the Nova at higher boost levels.

10200 might be tough. Would love to do it.

 

I think he knows better. Throwing a driveshaft on the dyno is a very real risk and should be take seriously.

I still want to mess with a 240 Ford big 6 at some point with LS heads. 

What V12 are you taking about? We can update old school. I'm interested in anything that is cheap and capable.
