Video: Flaming River-Equipped PriuSRT8 Run 9-Seconds


What’s the most important thing at 147 mph? Control. You need to keep it upright and on the asphalt. Flaming River can help with their full lineup of steering components and accessories.

Check out the PriuSRT8 for proof. It’s a Hellcat-swapped Toyota Prius built by Farks Supercars and American Racing Headers. Equipped with a Flaming River steering column, this former economy car lit up the Modern Hemi Shootout to the tune of 9.38 seconds at 147 mph in the quarter mile. As you can see in the video, it tracks true and straight all the way down, easily putting other modern Hemi cars to shame with its 1,000+ horsepower.

The 6.2 Hemi is topped with a massive 4.5L Whipple supercharger and backed by a 6-speed row-your-own gearbox that puts power to a built 9” rear. Obviously, the only Prius left in this beast is the exterior sheet metal. Underneath hides a full tube chassis, a custom suspension, and custom steering.

Put your high speed mind at ease with the best steering components and accessories available from Flaming River. From made-to-fit steering columns to universal boxes, pumps, and racks, they have everything you need for a mild resto-mod or full-blown pro-touring build. And ground shipping on internet orders is FREE to the contiguous United States. Check out their website for more information at www.flamingriver.com.

Kent grew up in the shop with his old man and his '70 Charger R/T. His first car was a 1969 Super Bee project when Kent was fourteen. That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.
