AMS Drag Evo VIII to compete in the Texas Mile – Update

Well our beloved drag car is now about to get loaded into a trailer for the Texas mile. The finishing touches were performed the past few days. Some final aero steps were taken on the front bumper. The air horn was applied to the turbo. The cage was seamed up in a couple more spots for added safety and rigidity. The exhaust was finished as well with a very cool and unique look out the front bumper. The air to water setup and Radiator were totally finished and Justin performed some last minute adjustments to the suspension and alignment. Or course last but not least she got her throw back sticker treatment. Toss in a little paint on the bumper and Texas here we come!

Friday the 26th will be the first day for passes on the car stay tuned for more updates.
