Ron Rhodes Resets X275 Nitrous Record With Induction Solutions

X275 superstar Ron Rhodes has had a umber of banner weekends over the years behind the wheel of his Induction Solutions nitrous-fed Chevrolet Camaro, and this year’s Yellow Bullet Nationals at the Cecil County Dragway in Maryland was certainly another one of them.

Rhodes, a many-time record-holder with a plethora of race victories in the 275 radial-tire eliminator to his credit, drove his Camaro — which sports power from a small-block Chevrolet fed by an Induction Solutions X275-specific single stage direct port system — to a new national record for nitrous oxide-assisted X275 entries with a 4.372-second lap at 160 mph in qualifying. That run, which bettered his own 4.38 that had stood as the nitrous record (either big-block or small-block), also qualified him No. 1 in the class at one of the season’s premier X275 events.

If the weekend hadn’t gone well enough to that point, Rhodes charged through the field on raceday and ultimately defeated Joe Albrecht in the finale to score the Yellow Bullet Nationals crown.

“It’s not just one piece that makes the puzzle complete — it’s the total package that does. Congrats to Ron and his entire team on setting the X275 nitrous record,” said Induction Solutions’ Steve Johnson.

Rhodes’ Camaro, impressively enough, gets it done on Calvert leaf spring rear suspension, with Santhuff struts resting up front. The BES-built powerplant, topped with a Devane carburetor, feed through a PTC converter to the Mickey Thompson 275 radials.
