3 Letters, 2 Seats: Respect the AMX
5-time World Land Speed Record holder Craig Breedlove sure had some fun in an AMX. Just before the car debuted, him and his team racked up 106 certified speed and endurance records for cars with under 488 cu in displacement and 14 that would be records in any car. After the debut, Breedlove took his modified AMXs to Bonneville and "unofficially" reached over 200 mph. Breedlove's AMX 390 was bored out to a 397 and equipped with a racing camshaft, exhaust headers, a high rise intake and larger carburetor. The suspension system got a big upgrade with traction control arms, better shocks and a panhard bar. Lakewood can help you upgrade your suspension system with the most accurate and consistent drag shocks on the market.
