AUTOMOBILE CRAFT Summertime Nats Pro Home builder: The Roadster Store

When Neil Gerber initially gave us a trip of The Roadster Shop (RS) during Power Trip 2015, we couldn’t help but to drool over this extreme 1968 Dodge Battery charger that sitting in the show room. Longer, sleeker, as well as lower than the original vehicle, there isn’t a single square inch of that Challenger that RS had not rubbed. With the original design honed and distilled, the RS Charger looks like it was milled from a solid block of aluminum. That’s not completely challenging to think when you look at every single detail of the RS Battery charger, with the most radical modifications being CNC-milled or hand-formed from the light-weight product. This year at the VEHICLE CRAFT Summertime Nationals in at the Wisconsin State Fair Park, The Roadster Store’s extraordinary Battery charger will certainly be on display screen. The RS Battery charger begins with a total chromoly tube-chassis, changing the front suspension with RS’s own Dodge Viper-based tubular control arms, with factory Viper spindles. In the rear, a Viper differential divides power to an independent rear suspension, utilizing a pushrod suspension to take up the bumps; way-cool tech that you normally see on F1 vehicles. At each corner, Penske double-adjustable shocks keep things fit, handling the weight of the 19×10-inch front wheels, and enormous 20×15-inch rear wheels that RS developed. The enormous wheels, which were machined by Greening Auto Business, are similar to American Racing’s Vector wheels, like what the original General Lee rocked. If you’ve made it this far, you can probably guess exactly what powers this insane Battery charger. If you stated “twin-turbo Viper engine,” you would be appropriate. The RS Opposition utilizes a large twin-turbo Viper V10, developed by Nelson Racing Engines (NRE). Two Precision 67mm-inducer turbochargers feed boost to the big-ten through a NRE “alien” intake manifold. Waste exhaust gas is invested through some flush-mounted side-exit pipelines. According to Neal, the huge snake’s engine produced 1,200 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque …
