All About Boost and Vortech Superchargers
Vortech Superchargers At The St. Louis Street Car Super Nationals...
Photos Courtesy of Bangshift and PSCAThe Premier Street Car Association hosted the Street Car Supernationals 4 this past weekend in St. Louis, Mo. the event was entitled "Anarchy At The Arch", taking inspiration from the city's iconic Gateway Arch landmark. Before the event was unfortunately rained out, Vortech Supercharged racers turned in impressive times in multiple classes, forcing all in attendance to take notice of the efficiency and reliability of the current Vortech V-30 line of centrifugal superchargers. All in all, it made for an exciting weekend of racing, even if Mother Nature decided to cut it short in the end.
Chris Groves - X275
Chris was on point this weekend as usual turning in great lap times that kept him at the front of the class. The Vortech V-30 105A Supercharged 1991 LX Mustang qualified #2 in X275 with a 4.483 @ 160 mph. Weather this weekend was something that everyone had to contend with and a track that was marginal in the heat of the day kept everyone on their "A" game.
Earl Stanley / Mike Adams - X275
By far the most unique combination running in X275, Stanley/Adams are putting their V-30 105A assisted power down with a 347 cubic inch engine, the smallest engine in the class. They were able to maintain top 5 throughout qualifying despite a few issues, the team was able to turn in a 4.560 @ 155 mph in their 1988 Mustang GT.
Marty Chance - X275
Marty has been working on his program since switching the boost in his 1987 Fox Body to a Vortech V-30 102A Supercharger, and is getting the car to from A to B with all the new-found horsepower. Marty was a contender all weekend with a string of mid 4 second runs, and qualified #3 in X275 with a 4.487 @ 162 mph.
In the second round of qualifying, Marty came head to head with fellow Vortech Supercharged racer Chris Groves. The race was a nailbiter, but as always there can only be one winner, and Chris Groves edged out the win with a 4.52 to Marty’s 4.72. Look for Marty and his stout combo to only get better and faster going forward.
Andrew Osborne - Vortech 8.5 Outlaw/MX235
Andrew has been on a tear in his home state of Colorado, where he normally runs in the PCSA Rocky Mountain series. Osborne brought his Vortech V-30 112A Supercharged Mustang St. Louis to see how things work closer to sea level. Once again, it was Vortech Racers to the front of the pack. The first round of qualifying saw Andrew in the #1 position, and he continued to be in the top 3 throughout the weekend.
Up until the 3rd round of qualifying, the weather was perfect - low humidity and good air. Going into Saturday, things looked promising even though there was the threat of rain. In the late afternoon Saturday, the threat of rain became a reality and at that point the event was ended with 1 Round of qualifying left.
Look for more Vortech Supercharged racing action coming soon!
