Ford Roadster With Holley Gen3 Ultra Dominator Breaks Two Bonneville Records
According to Dorton, he decided to switch to the 1475 CFM Gen 3 Ultra Dominator on the race car's engine, because of its increased airflow and easier tuning abilities. With the amount of ridiculously high powered engines that Dorton builds, he’s always on the lookout for the newest carbs that can provide greater flow and more power. With a bevy of new features, Dorton calls the carburetor a “true bolt-on." He was pleasantly surprised to find he didn’t need to do much to it after the initial installation, and says Holley’s claim to be “race ready” straight of the box proves to be no joke. Dorton was so satisfied with the new Gen 3 Ultra Dominator’s performance and simplicity that he decided to use the carburetor in six other Bonneville hot rods.
The Gen 3 Ultra Dominator is the latest design in a long history of racing carburetors. The original Dominator was developed in 1969 for the radical high speed world of NASCAR® racing. Over the last four decades the Dominator has seen its fair share of tweaks and revisions. But with the demanding racing environment of the 21st century, Holley decided it was due for a high performance overhaul.
The all new Gen 3 Ultra Dominator features a brand new main body,, state–of–the–art calibrations, and is offered in 950, 1050, 1150, 1250, 1350 and 1475 CFM sizes. Completely redesigned from the ground up for racing, the new calibrations have been optimized for today’s larger engines and new fuels. Each new calibration has been dyno and track tested to deliver proven performance, and the all aluminum construction is 3.8 lbs lighter, a 28 percent weight savings over previous Dominator models. Modified skirt boosters on 1350 and 1475 models help maintain a strong fuel signal, and 12-hole billet booster inserts provide superior air-fuel atomization and crisp throttle response. With a fully adjustable stainless steel linkage and provision for a TPS sensor, the Gen 3 Ultra Dominators can work on just about any racing application and be used with electronic data acquisition systems.
With the results they've had so far, Dorton and Hutchinson are very excited to see what other records they can break at Bonneville later this year, now that they have Holley’s new Gen 3 Ultra Dominators in their arsenal.

How To Choose A Drag Race Ignition| 12/03/2018
Drag racers rely on exotic fuels and high cylinder pressures to make huge power. High compression ratios, nitrous oxide and high boost pressures paired with alcohol, methanol or nitro make lighting the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder difficult. The immense pressures inside the combustion chamber will literally blow the spark out. This is where an MSD ignition really shines. Its ability to fire the most powerful and fastest racecars on the planet is legendary. MSD ignition systems can be basic, or advanced enough to control one-tenth of a degree of timing for one-hundredth of a second in any cylinder using individual cylinder timing.
