  1. Hi hope 2021 The OG is on Radials and he Gear up the Rossler Over 200mph i love this Car ….Great Car Butt a new 572 in it ant New 88mm Turbos and this Bitch Fly to the Moonn

  2. Stupid question, not a drag Racer but from the pinion angle point of view, would it help you to be able to move your rear transmission mount down or up depending on the tire that you're going to use, to get the pinion angle you're looking for?

  3. You should hook a go pro to the bottom side for video of the suspension when going down the track. Might be sweet to see and help people like me that are just starting out to understand better about what you guys have done for years!

  4. Awesome content. I'd love to see the setup and reasoning for big tires on the street. 4 Link Plus by Performance Trends Inc is an awesome program for plotting a car. I think the program is based on the Door Slammers Chassis Book by Dave Morgan. Once a car is properly measured, Shawn could throw that graph paper away and spend less time overthinking. -TXsilverado

  5. Okay, so this may be telling how old I really am but here it goes anyway.
    I have not heard of wanting separation before. It has always been about squat and weight transferring to the rear tire.
    It seems if you get the rear springs unloading, or separating, it would out you "up on the tire" as we used to call spinning and not winning. Where is the idea of getting separation come from and how does it not cause smoking the tire?

  6. double adjustable shocks? If not, that would help a lot. 13" on your instant center is really high!!! WOW! We ran 48" and 4" instant center on our pro-stock.

  7. Just met you guys in Huntsville at Radial Fest. Gotta say man yall are some class acts. Signed autographs and took pics with anyone who asked. You sure made my kids happy. Murder Nova fan for life!!

  8. Ive watched all of the streets outlaws episodes,but u can't beat the first 3-4 seasons wen it was true raw real street outlaws,but as the series continued to come out it got worse,
    For me i dislike the track days prepped etc..
    Please bring it back to the streets

  9. I've loved drag racing since I was little. My late father, Charles Francis "Challi" Marshall or my brother-n-law, the late Harold Douglas "Chip" Wright, would take me car, motor cycle, and boat racing. It was always the ability to go behind the scenes and see the real work. The 65 Chevy Impala, 70 Chevy Nova, and the 75 Camaro were what Chip ran at Capital, Budds Creek, Colonial Beach raceways were great. Thanks Shawn for the care and love you have for her.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ˜ท

  10. I love the OG nova itโ€™s such a sweet car and I am glad itโ€™s being used more and putting it on a small tire is a great idea, I canโ€™t wait to see it run, gonna blister a eighth mile of tire at first Iโ€™m sure

  11. Always been a huge fan of Shawn and Murder Nova its nice to see this side of things. So glad I found this channel he deserves way more subs.

  12. Shawn and the Murder Nova….Yeeessssss!!! For sure the coolest of all the Street Outlaws!!! Stayed a family man and didn't let the fame and fortune go to his head. He didn't go all Hollywood on us cause he's on t.v. Monkey new who to stay with. Can't wait to see the Murder Nova in the top contender spot.

  13. I grew up in the 90โ€™s so I couldnโ€™t watch the Murder Nova whip somebody ass without yellin โ€œITS MURRRRDAAAAโ€ when it crossed the line LoL Shawn was always the realest coolest dude and murder nova was always the baddest bitch, suuuper excited I found the 187 customs channel!!

  14. You should call OG the Oprah car…Spent all that dinero to lose weight, then add it all back on…doin work…just subscribed..

  15. Shorten the instant center more, IMO. 28-32" long is what I have seen work the best at reducing the wheelies. Good luck with the racing.

  16. Dude! Thanks much for this video. THIS is the side we donโ€™t get to see. Subscribed now & cant wait to send this so I can get back to your other vids. ๐Ÿ‘€
