Currently one of the quickest x275 radial small tyre cars in Australia, the Dandy Engines Ford XW Falcon piloted by Frank Marchese is also the reigning Street Machine Drag Challenge champion. Having run an oh so close seven triple zero ET at over 200mph, Frank took the opportunity to run the X-dub up on Tunnel Vision’s 3000hp mainline hub dyno where they can simulate 1/8th mile and ¼ mile dyno passes. Also in attendance was expert Fueltech tuner, Proline Racing’s Steve Petty.

The car is still powered by the same Dandy Engines small block Ford that features off the shelf Higgins cylinder heads, and twin Precision 88mm turbos along with a complete Fueltech FT500 EFI fuel system and leaf sprung rear end. This time however the car would aim to see over 40psi boost.
