Australia’s quickest and fastest man in a doored car is making a move to the ranks of Pro Slammer in Australia with a new Ford Mustang – and he will make its debut at Nitro Up North on July 21 and 22!
Outlaw Extreme racer Paul Mouhayet will soon be unveiling the lastest thoroughbred to join the MOITS Racing stable.
“You want to beat the best when you race,” he said. “In this country, the best door car driver and team is John Zappia and Zappia Racing. We’ve done great things with the turbo cars, but after all we’ve done, the (turbo) Pro Mod deal hasn’t taken off here. And for us to race against the best on home soil we needed to go down this road.”
The new Slammer setup will feature a Jerry Bickel Chassis/Proline 1968 Fastback Ford Mustang, Proline 520 cu.in. PSI Supercharged Hemi, and a three speed Lenco Drive.
After lengthy discussions over the past few years, the team at MOITS Racing felt pushed into a corner to race Doorslammer so from there, a plan was formulated to put together the new car.
With a long and successful relationship with Proline, they were the only choice for the new power plant. Jerry Bickel has built some of the fastest blown doorslammers in the world and was tasked with building the new Moits’ beast.
As soon as the new car arrives it will be set up and tested prior to its debut at the upcoming Nitro Up North event, the opening round of the newly amalgamated Pro Series of the Australian National Drag Racing Association and 400 Thunder in Darwin. If all goes well, Paul and the close-knit team will also race the following weekend in the exhibition Doorslammer bracket at Alice Springs.
New cars always come with a myriad of teething issues and to assist the team to get through those as quickly as possible, and make a mountain of horsepower out of the blown Hemi, Billy Stocklin is making the journey to Australia.
Doorslammer race fans will be extremely excited by this news. Billy has tuned for some of the biggest names in the Pro Mod world including Frankie “The Madman” Taylor. He currently tunes for the poster-boy of NHRA Promod, Stevie “Fast” Jackson.
Paul, David, Daniel, MOITS brothers Michael, George and Tony, and the entire MOITS Racing Team would like to thank every single person and company involved with getting this car to fruition, and look forward to unveiling it along with their two new major corporate sponsors once the car hits Australian shores.
