One surefire way to test the strength of a rear end is by drag racing. In drag racing you have hard launches, huge horsepower and big tires that grip. Those three are ingredients in a recipe of destruction, especially when it comes to rear ends.
For Currie Enterprises, that’s just another day in the office. When your business is about building high quality rear ends, you have to make sure the rear ends withstand that punishment, time and time again.
Scott “Lucky” Hudson is the proud owner of the Currie ’66 Nova you see with the black flames. He earned the name “Lucky” after winning two track championships. However there is no luck involved in that; winning is made up of a great driver, a great car and an even better team.
Scott’s ’66 Nova is equipped with a 540CI Dart motor that puts all that power through the Currie rear end. To date his best is a 9.30ET at 138MPH. The best part is that his wife also races.
Diana also pilots a red ’66 Nova that’s equipped with a Currie rear end. Don’t fool yourself thinking that she can’t drive. While her Nova has a smaller 406CI Dart motor, she still smokes the competition. Her best is a 10.30ET at 130MPH! Only a second slower than her husband.
Two ’66 Novas tearing up the track is a great real world test of the Currie rear ends. If you’re in the market for a rear end that can withstand all, be sure to check out Currie Enterprises!
