If all goes according to plan Jim Brown will be suiting up and rolling into the burnout box at Beech Bend Raceway this Friday during the NMRA World Finals (October 4-7, 2012). Brown will be strapping in to his familiar 2003 Mustang GT and taking aim down the ¼-mile. He will be piloting a 2,500 hp machine that is expected to run into the 6-second zone at speeds well over 200 mph. The on-track goals will be achieved thanks to a Steve Schmidt 550ci engine with a ProCharger F3R 136mm supercharger. The engine wears a pair of C&C Motorsport cylinder heads that are a hemispherical design and flow over 500cfm on big-bore engines. Brown made the leap to Pro Outlaw 10.5 several years ago after he ran in NMRA Open Comp. He first attacked the category with a 632ci engine utilizing three-stages of nitrous and got his Mustang into the low 7s before making the switch over to a ProCharger supercharged combination two years ago. The new EFI combination makes use of individual coils for each cylinder rather than a distributor. Brown also runs the engine on VP Racing Fuels M1 alcohol.
