    Some will remember Mickey from the old crowd, but he has since passed away and his truck was purchased.

    brought to JTSVP and refreshed a bit

    Its an rc with a gm 4l80e with a gear vendors unit
    Paxton and normal mods headers so forth

    We pulled and rebuilt the engine, straightened out a few things here and there
    Torrie from unleashed tuning did the tune

    and I must say for only 10 lbs it made about 690rwhp which isn't bad for the trans and overdrive unit its going thru, prob between 15-20% drivetrain loss

    but she is back beating the ground, and his legacy shall live a bit longer:rock:

    Never seen an auto RC. Thats a pretty clean interior build, looks factory!

    Mickey was a great guy and I was involved in much of his build. He was a true Viper tech and did all of this work on his own. From the auto swap to the console, to the Paxton build. He was truly one of the good guys. Good to see his truck back in action :burnout:

    yeah we had to go back rebuild the complete engine, new cam, replace a ton of things,and completely redo the wiring, but she is running nice and shifting actually now, he is more than happy with our results!:rock:
