Inside, you'll find more examples of the Yancer treatment. Kirkey aluminum seats, Auto Meter and Ford Racing gauges, a Hurst line lock, a Grant steering wheel, and a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter greet the driver. The transmission is a Performance Automatic Pro-Glide that stalls to 7,000 rpm.

Hot Street and Street Bandit are all about making the maximum naturally aspirated horsepower allowed by the rules and then applying that horsepower to the ground as efficiently as possible. Simply put, it's an engine builder's class, and if your guy doesn't have it, you don't win. Luckily, the Bott family got hooked up with Jimmy Kuntz, a respected small-block Ford engine maestro who has built Hot Street/Street Bandit motors for some of the best. A 4.185-inch bore with a 4.00-inch stroke brings the Dart block out to 440 cubic inches of raging Ford. Inside, you'll find a Scat billet crank, GRP aluminum rods, and JE pistons on an undisclosed compression ratio. Kuntz CNC-ported the 7721 Edelbrock Victor heads and hand-ported the Edelbrock Super Victor intake manifold that wears a Holley Dominator from Pro Systems. The Comp Cams camshaft works with 2.20-inch intake and 1.60-inch exhaust valves, T&D rocker arms, Comp valvesprings, and Crower lifters. Supporting equipment includes an Aeromotive fuel system, Kooks headers, and an MSD ignition. All totaled, it's a 907-horse freight train waiting to be unleashed.
