Kurgan runs 7.94 @ 175
in NMRA Drag Radial trim!
“With over 300 passes on
my existing D.S.S.363XR and 500 passes on my
D.S.S Extreme XR Forged Pistons, I have managed
to run my best time ever 7.94 @ 175.
Just to put that into perspective, That is the
fastest Vortech assisted Drag Radial And Extreme
Street run ever. With a little more tuning I am
sure I can get this combination to run in the
7.80's. When I pull up to the starting line
during a race, I have alot of things going
through my mind. One thing I NEVER worry about
is my D.S.S.363 XR engine. In over 10yrs, I have
never had a mechanical failure!
Thanks D.S.S. and crew!!!”

Tom, and D.S.S. crew
I would like personally thank you and your
employees for such great service. Ever since
1998, when we purchased our first engine from
you have been very helpful with every one of our
6 engines we purchased. From the 400hp 306 in
our 1971 Maverick street car which had over
1,000 1/4 passes plus street miles, to our
newest 427 combo for our 1969 Cougar you have
been top notch.
The newest combo in our Maverick is a Dart block
347,AFR 205's,solid roller,c-4 auto, with 4.56
gears. I am very happy, at the end of last
season it went a 10.48 @ 127.5 mph on pump gas
fuel weighing in at almost 3200 lbs. Our Cougar
had your 408 super pro bullet, it went 10.30's
with victor jr heads and solid roller. Looking
to run in the 9's with our new 427XR, trick flow
highport 225's, and a .700+ lift solid roller.
I am sending you a few pics of our rides, we
praise DSS Racing every chance we get when at

bear this out.
However we do have some people whose opinions we value quite
highly that we would like have to chime in.
We hope to provide you with letters from Bill
Alexander owner of Fun Ford Weekend and Tom Brown long time
drag racer and Chief of Security for Fun Ford Weekend to
further validate our driver.
Both Bill and Tom Brown are traveling back from the
weekend event and will be emailing you directly with their
hundreds of people by every weekend wondering what the hell
that Conrad guy is running that he is up and
down the track all weekend.
By all weekend we mean 45-60 passes at every event we
attend combining time trials and eliminations.
We have put over 3000 passes on your 306 without even
a hiccup until we sent the rod out the side this past

Needless to say people see this care more than any
other when we are at the track.
