Curt and the team at St. James Diesel Performance are trying to go as big as they possibly can to make the best truck in the industry starting with competing at UCC 2019. This truck is a 1995 Dodge 2500 with a steel body, full factory frame with factory leaf springs. It has been converted to a 6.7 Cummins common rail engine with triple 12mm CP3 pumps, triple turbo setup, Dynomite Diesel Products Injectors and tuning from Done Right Diesel Performance. This truck has set multiple NHRDA records for MPH and ET. This truck and team were the first 6,000 pound leaf spring truck running 8 second passes back in 2016 at the Industrial Injection Diesel Performance event. You can see this truck and team at pretty much any diesel event whether it be ODSS or just at a local track.
At the 2017 UCC, this truck was able to compete in the drag race and dyno portion of the event and ended in 23rd place overall. They placed 19th in the drag racing portion making it down the track in 15.579 seconds. On the dyno, St James threw down 1,197 HP placing 17th for that portion of the event. Their black and red freshly sandblasted machine made it down the ¼ mile track in 9.060 seconds, placing them in 10th place for that portion of the event. Unfortunately they were not able to participate in the dyno or sled pull at UCC 2018, and ended up in 20th overall.
For UCC 2019, they will be bringing back water/air intercooler and transmission and converter changes. They have big goals coming into the 2019 season and hope to break more records. His 2019 season is sponsored by Dynomite Diesel Products and Done Right Diesel. We are excited to see the big changes that have been made to the truck to see it perform!
