Chevrolet Nova SS ’70

This is for 1/4 mile drag. I really love the look of this car and I love the color I painted mine. It looks basically black, but has a deep red shine once the light hits it. That mixed with the white top really makes it stand out. It has a ton of power, but like all muscle cars it has way too much torque. The wheels spin out of control all the time. I adjusted it the best I could, but you still have to pay attention or the car will go crazy off the line. Just make sure you are lined up straight and you should only need a tiny adjustments here and there. Start in gear 2 with Nos held and shift at about 100mph. All the other gears I find a bit before the redline works best. It’s not the fastest car in the world, but it looks cool and still moves quick.

    Novas are the kings of drag racing. Some of the worlds fastest drag cars are actually Novas. It’s a shame they can’t be fitted with proper power in Gran Turismo. 1500bhp Novas are more normal than factory ones.

    • Lol ya that would be insane. This car just looks so sick especially with the back raised so high.
