DC Peformance Is Proud To Work With MoparMax Magazine's Late Model Hemi Project Car

MoparMax Magazine’s 
Late Model Hemi 
Project Car 
The Maulin’ Magnum 

Driver: Alex “The Car Girl” Rogeo  
Crew Chief: Richard Kratz 

The Maulin’ Magnum is a 2007 Dodge Magnum SRT8. The purpose of the magazine project is to showcase 
products and modifications to our readers that improve the performance of the LX/LC platform cars (Charger, 
300C, Magnum, Challenger). The focus is street/strip performance. The Maulin’ Magnum competes in NHRA 
Summit Series, Pacific Street Car Association (PSCA), National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) West series 
and West Coast Hot Rod Association (WCHRA) races in the Southwest US. 

MoparMax Editor-Publisher, Richard Kratz is the car’s crew chief. He has a background that includes being a 
former FAA licensed aircraft mechanic, aviation engineering, and more than 25 years racing experience.  

MoparMax Assistant Editor and Columnist as well as official Test Driver, Alex “The Car Girl” Rogeo brings 
her many talents to this project. In addition to being a naturally talented driver, Alex is also an actress and 
trained singer (she sings the National Anthem at PSCA and other races) and maintains a straight A average at 
Cal State Northridge. Her number one passion in life though, is drag racing. She has her own website and fan 
club at www.AlexTheCarGirl.com. 

The project began with a completely factory stock vehicle, and will evolve from a mid 13-second street car, to a 
mid 11-second one, then to the mid-10s. All while remaining street driven. Readers can choose to emulate the 
Alex, Richard and crew celebrate their victor
modifications and parts used to achieve similar results. MoparMax is 
available both in print form and online every month at 
www.MoparMax.com (current unique visitors exceed 81,000/month 

On the driving side, while 2011 was Alex’s rookie season she had 
considerable success with The Maulin’ Magnum. Alex piloted the car to 
a victory in the WCHRA Shootout at Sundown race, made the finals at 
the PSCA Lucas Oil Slick Mist Nationals race in Las Vegas, grabbed the 
#1 Qualifier spot at the PSCA California Nationals, and earned enough points to go the NHRA Summit Division 7 finals in Las Vegas. 

Currently, the following companies participate in the project car: 

Magnuson Superchargers 
DC Performance 
The Driveshaft Shop

Unitrax Drivetrain

On the CARB legal Magnuson tune, the Maulin’ Magnum ran a best corrected ET of 12.03, very respectable for a 4,400 pound car. With a tune by DC Performance’s Chris Jensen, the car ran 11.6’s with high consistency, throwing down three passes in a row at 11.65, 11.66, 11.65. We couldn’t be happier with the DC Performance tune!

Six Figure Singer x DC Performance x Apex Speed = One Badass Porsche

This badass “Reimagined by Singer” machine is based on the 964 model, 911 chasis of 1990-1994.  Boasting a more sophisticated platform than past restorations by Singer, this gem is painted Singer Racing Silver with a Ruby Red interior.  This is the fourth machine to be restored and handcrafted for an owner by Singer.  Singer’s founder and creative director Rob Dickinson believes this machine boasts a combination of touring, luxury and sporting options that while seem extravagant, attempts to create the perfect gentleman’s sports car for the road.
Singer feels it is a torch bearer of the great coach building traditions of the 1920s and 1930s, brought up-to-date for the 21st century and utilizes new technologies and fresh perspectives.  Dickinson believes “Grand ideas would be impossible to implement without the incredible network of skilled specialists that exist here in Southern California – from world-class upholstering to cutting-edge composite technology, from unique nickel plating and polishing developments to state-of-the-art rapid prototyping and manufacturing.”

After nearly four years of passionate restoration of its first three optimized, air-cooled Porsche 911s provided to their owners, Singer recently entered the next phase in the advancement of its company with two key partnerships – internationally-renowned motorsport engineers The Cosworth Group is Singer’s exclusive supplier of engines, and composite experts Aria Group prepares, paints and outfits the carbon fiber bodies utilized in Singer restorations.

Pricing reflects this no-expense-spared approach with owners choosing from a comprehensive range of restorative and modification services ranging from $190,000 to more than $300,000.  Singer works collaboratively with each owner to personalize a machine to their own specific tastes.

SVD offers a full range of engine options, with three tiers of performance levels:

Touring – 3.6-liter engine, producing 300 hp
Sport – 3.9-liter engine, producing 360 hp
Cup – 3.9 to 4.0-liter engine, producing more than 400 hp

These engines will present state-of-the-art thinking and development in all areas of the Singer restored Porsche® air- cooled unit with optimization in-cylinder head design, fuel injection, intake and exhaust, to name a few.

DC Performance was excited and honored to be chosen to help tune this rare Porsche restoration.  In conjunction with Apex Speed Technology, this tuned piece of art was brought to DC Performance to utilize our Dynapack Dynamometer.  DC Performance is your one-stop service and performance center located in Los Angeles.
