Finnegan is back at it and unfortunately things didn’t go as planned for Blasphemi’s recent dragstrip testing. This beast is making more power than it ever has and unfortunately that combo of power, awesome traction, and an evil clutch just didn’t play well with the transmission and the end result isn’t pretty. You are going to want to watch this. But before you do, know that the Hemi is okay. He did NOT hurt the engine.
It’s taken 14 months for me to finally have Blasphemi ready to rip down a dragstrip and for the first time ever, I’m actually attending a private test session. Episode 276 of Mike Finnegan’s Garage takes you along for the ride as we track-prep my 528ci Hemi-swapped 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air and then head to Alabama International Dragway in Steele, Alabama to see how the car runs.
And without fail, we managed to find an entirely new weak point in my car and exploit said weak point in spectacular fashion. We legit littered the starting line with massive pieces of my brand new transmission.
Watch the video, feel my pain, and then head to https://www.fsmgarage.com and grab my new Research and Destruction tee shirt because lord knows this latest breakdown aint gonna be cheap. lol Thanks for watching and more importantly, thanks for the support. -Finnegan
