It is no secret that Luis prefers nitrous-powered hot rods—his first wicked quick street car, which he built almost 20 years ago and it utilized an early FuelTech ECU, had nitrous on it. Many years later and Luis went big with Brian Shaw and OTG Racing’s Pro Mod/RVW Camaro. In fact, it served as a rolling test bed for the PowerFT Pro Nitrous functions. And let’s not forget the dozens of high-profile nitrous combinations that Luis has influenced over the last several years that crush it in Radial Outlaw Racing Series, PDRA, NHRA, NMCA, X275, and other sanctioning bodies and categories.
So, when it came to put together a Radial vs. The World program with the BAR powerhouse race team, a nitrous combination was an obvious choice. The group picked up a 1969 Camaro that saw life in the Pro Mod ranks and it spent the winter at FuelTech being turned into a radial racing superstar.
The wheelie bars had to be discarded, a shock and strut package along with a fresh set of wheels and tires were slung the carbon fiber body, and they performed an extensive weight reduction plan—just to name a few of the many modifications made to the chassis. A FuelTech FT600 engine management system is the centerpiece of the on-board control systems, its designed to deliver Luis to record runs and allow him to be championship contender. Naturally, the rest of the FuelTech catalog was installed to keep the super-sized Buck Racing Engines running smoothly with six stages of nitrous oxide.
