Texas Mile- The Champ is on the way!

Ok a little bit of mis- information on my part: The event that Bello was attending was the "Texas invitational My apologies for that


Typical Bello style, he had to overcome a numerous setbacks, one, the car broke loose at the dyno and was almost the end of an era. Two the gear box broke while testing, three the clutch let go, all in all the demons were trying to keep him home but the Mighty warrior refused to give in and now the Texas nightmare is on his way, I know the Lambo community is on their heels.

GT Guard to the rescue with new customs gears.



New and improved Bello Racing Headers


Gone is the air/air intercooler now with a top notch water system

NOT the final results but this is the only one I can post


The BEAST is on the Way!


Good Luck Tito! Bring back the belt back home again!

That engine is putting out some serious power ! 3rd gear exploded on the dyno at 5500rpm. I'm curious about the new forced performance turbos

Is it urban legend that Eddie used to (maybe still does) drive his car to the track and run it?

Maybe the stakes are too high to do such a thing anymore...

To be able to run 236MPH+ is a huge gamble so a trailer is a necessity, this time around the aim is to run in the 240+mph.

The UG Lambos may be worried.... But I don't think Kelly Bise in the LMR Camaro has anything to worry about.

If I was Kelly I would be worried about the skinny pedal in that Camaro. Even if I had the HP I don't have the stones to drive a car 250+.



Good luck Eddie!

Yikes -- Bello needs to get off a roller dyno and onto a Dynapack, no chance of breaking loose.

The competition is going to be tough. Best of luck to Eddie at the TX Mile!
