Coming off his 2018 Outlaw Diesel Super Series Pro Dragster Championship in his Duramax powered dragster, NGM Racing Owner Wade Moody set out on a new adventure with a new challenge. He decided to move into the highly competitive ProMod class for 2019 with a totally new race car.
He purchased a Jerry Bickel Race Cars ProMod chassis with a carbon fiber C7 Corvette body and built a billet Duramax 408 cu.in. twin-turbocharged and nitrous oxide ingesting diesel-burning engine to propel the car down the track. While some doubted that his NGM Diesel Race Engines Duramax engine could deliver the power needed to make a heavier ProMod car competitive against the other ProMod racers. But never one to stand down from a challenge Moody and his team went to work spinning wrenches, fabricating parts, building, assembling and wiring the C7 in hopes of taking the 2019 ODSS season by storm.
During the off-season, Moody and his team went to work on the ProMod project starting with the fresh Jerry Bickel Race Cars chassis getting it ready to accept a Duramax diesel and ready to race. Lamb Components double adjustable Coilover struts were hung from the front of the chassis mated to the Bickel chromoly strut mounts and control arms. Steering is actuated through a lightweight rack and pinion steering rack while braking is handled by Lamb two-piece carbon rotors clamped by 1-piston Lamb calipers. The master cylinder is mounted low on the driver’s side forward of the firewall along with a Hurst Roll Control line lock solenoid to help in staging.
In the back the rear axle assembly is located with JBRC adjustable link arms and mounts to allow Moody and his team to position the axle housing precisely where they need it. The housing is stuffed with Lamb Components internals including spool, gears and axle shafts. Rear braking is handled by Lamb two-piece carbon rotors with two-piston calipers giving them the squeeze. The axle assembly is tamed with a set of remote reservoir Penske double-adjustable coil-over shocks with PAC Racing coil springs. Meaty rear 17.0/34.5-16 Hoosier drag slicks are mounted on a set of Weld Racing Delta-1 wheels to plant the power to the ground when Moody mashes the loud pedal.
