At MTP, we race what we sell! We know that actions speak louder than words and what better way to communicate this than to get in the trenches and do some racing. Our main shop cars are an SFI 25.3 spec 1948 Plymouth and SFI 25.5 spec 1979 Ford Fairmont. Employing many of the very same products and services you see advertised here on our site, we've put together cars which we feel well represent the interests of our customer base. While they may admittedly be on the ragged edge, we aren't going to let that stop us from having some fun driving them on the street. We'll post updated photos as the projects progress. Vehicle specs are found below.


2012 Updates - The car is nearly ready to get back on the road with some front suspension updates and a pair of Precision Turbo PT-88's. If all goes well, we will have some high quality photos and video of the car available for viewing soon. We anticipate this setup will provide us with a very streetable 2000+hp. Look for the car to make 2012 appearances at Ozark Raceway Park, MoKan dragway and other tracks in the Midwest.


We're still far from road ready, but the updates to the 1948 Plymouth are coming along. The SFI 25.3 rollcage is finished and we've dropped the new 509 ci twin turbo powerplant in place.. We've also fitted the FAST XFI with ITC (Intelligent Traction Control) and a FAST touchscreen dash/datalogger.

Here is a shot of our powerplant from 2007. We've since robbed the turbos for use on the big block in our other shop car and have put a ProCharger F-2 in their place.

Track notes 9/08/07 - We took the car up to US36 Raceway in Osborne Mo. for some 1/8th mile action and found the track a bit more slippery than our home track. That said, we did manage a best to date 5.86 @ 127mph in spite of the poor 60' time, with the same tune from the last time out. It looks like that trans has been holding us back more than we realized! We also got some ink in FSC magazine, click below to read recent articles featuring the MTP Fairmont and to watch a video of our recent test pass at US36.

Track notes 9/21/07 - We took the "Furious Fairmont" to KCIR for some more testing action and found the track a bit more slippery than expected. That said, we did manage a best to date 5.71 @ 125mph to the 1/8th mile in spite of the slipping and sliding and banging the rev limiter. It appears that we're at the limits of our torque convertor and will need to make a convertor upgrade and perhaps some chassis adjustments before we ratchet the power up any further.
