Build & Battle: Engines OUT! Rotary vs V8, What's the Fastest Budget Drag Racing Motor? EP.2

Now that both the Vargas brothers' RX7 and Bad Daddy Braddy's S10 have been gutted, it's time to choose the powerplant that will bring one of them to victory. That means we're at the beginnings of exactly what you came here for: to see how a built rotary fares against a "allegedly" stock 5.3 liter LS.

  • Anybody else fucked up on the fact they raised the budget in the 3rd season, like they purposely did that to fuck up braddys build. It’s kinda bullshit.

  • I hope that Brads 5.3 runs ok because that engine looks like it has the active fuel management on it and on those engines the lifters like to collapse and eat up the camshafts. He should’ve went with an older one.
