We can now call Scott Husted “The Former” Outlaw 10.5 and Heavy Street racer after recent economic events have left him without a place locally to campaign his twin turbo powered 69 Camaro he has owned since high school. The Outlaw 10.5 class in the Heads up Madness series at Sunshine Dragstrip was replaced for 2010 with Outlaw 632 after poor car counts and lack of funding. You may remember this car, Scott put the Camaro in the Heavy Street winners circle at the 2008 Orlando World Street Nationals.

Now he has a new build - and it just got interesting.

The 93 Ford coupe seen below was built by Robert Coady at Category 5 Race Cars in Zephyrhills, Florida and was recently updated to 25.3 spec. The car has changed hands a couple of times during the build, and has yet to see the track. Husted picked it up just last weekend to bring it home and get started with some fabrication. Yup you guess it, the BBC from the Camaro just found a new home.

The plan is to take all the useable parts from the Camaro, like the fuel system, ice tank, intercooler, electronics and engine and swap them to the Mustang. The engine is a Nelson Competition 598 ci. big block Chevy with heavily modified Dart 320 heads by HPS Cylinder Heads in Holiday, FL with twin Precision GT47/88mm turbos providing the boost. The 10.5 car has been in the 4.7 range @ 3175 lbs. which was 175 over weight for that class.

This new chassis should allow him to drop a few pounds and reach the Drag Radial minimum weight for his combo. Comparing the performance of the Camaro to other radial cars should provide similar times once he gets the power management figured out. The tentative goal is be ready for the May ORTC race in Georgia.

Check out the rest of the build photos below.
