Las Vegas, NV – October 31, 2017 – WAGLER COMPETITION PRODUCTS, the innovators in performance diesel engine technology, and EZ LYNK, the frontrunners in vehicle diagnostics and control, teamed up to form Critical Mass Motorsports (CMM) with a mission to push the limits of diesel-powered drag racing.
The nucleus of Critical Mass Motorsports is the Wagler-powered EZ LYNK 1937 Chevy Coupe Pro Mod, which was unveiled at The SEMA Show in the Premier Performance Products Distribution booth (#21641). The screw-blown diesel Coupe (name pending fan submissions) will be used as a test bed for new product development for both parties, and it’s equipped with cutting edge technology from some of the biggest names in motorsports.
The heart of the beast is a new, lightweight version of the all-billet Wagler DX500 diesel engine, which is force-fed air from a massive PSI screw blower. Nitrous and water/methanol are on tap courtesy of Nitrous Express and Atomizer Fuel Systems, and both are electronically calibrated to the S&S Diesel Motorsport fuel system.
The DX500L internals consist of Ross pistons, Total Seal piston rings, Wagler aluminum connecting rods, Trend wrist pins and pushrods, Comp Cams roller cam, Wagler roller rockers, and it’s all held together by ARP fasteners. Additionally, a custom dry sump system delivers the JR1 Racing Oil life-blood to the DX500L.
The Wagler-powered CMM Coupe sits on top of fat Mickey Thompson slicks at the perfect height thanks to a Ridetech adjustable suspension system.
The CMM team’s primary focus for the 2018 racing season will be real-world research and development, in the form of 660- and 1,320-foot sprints. Look for this potent screw-blown, diesel-fueled couple and various gas and diesel drag racing events nation-wide.
