VIDEO: Scott Oksas’ New RJ Race Cars ’67 Shelby Mustang
Check out this new ’67 Shelby Mustang that just rolled out of RJ Race Cars & Quarter-Max Chassis & Racing Components for Scott Oksas!
The RJ Race Cars full tube 4130 chromoly chassis features an upgraded double frame rail designed to handle well over 4,000 horsepower. The exterior of the car features an all-carbon-fiber body with Ford Sonic Blue paint by SD Enterprises. This standout Pro Mod car is optioned out with high quality Quarter-Max products from tip to tail.
The rear suspension features a Strange modular Pro Mod floater housing with Strange axles and brakes, and state-of-the-art 4-link suspension with RJ extreme adjustable billet 4-link chassis brackets, extreme 2″ anti-roll bar, extreme pro series wishbone, and Penske inerter rear shocks and dumps from Adam Lambert at Precison Racing Suspension. The front suspension features Quarter-Max threaded adjustable strut mounts, Penske triple adjustable struts, Strange pro carbon brakes, and Weld Full Throttle 15″ x 3.5″ Anglia front wheels.
The chassis and interior was all built custom for Oksas, who is 6′-4″ tall with extra-broad shoulders. Inside is a fully loaded lightweight carbon fiber interior featuring 48″ wheel tubs, flat sheet panels, tube protectors, and a QM lightweight steering wheel. Cockpit safety upgrades include a carbon wraparound seat with a custom-molded Butler seat insert and safety head pad system and a Stroud 6-point camlock harness.
Under the hood features a NHRA-legal twin-turbo 500″ Hemi from QMP that will be managed by the on-board Motec system. Custom headers, turbo mounting and plumbing was done in-house at RJ Race Cars.
Oksas, a Southern California native, plans to test his new car next week at the Street Car Super Nationals, Aug. 2-4, event at Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis before competing in the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod, Aug. 10-11, at Bandimere Speedway in Denver, Colorado.
