Video: Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 And Lavon Miller’s Drag Truck

Lavon Miller is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in diesel racing today, if not the biggest. His shop, Firepunk Diesel, has become synonymous with race-ready transmissions and a winning pedigree, and his truck is one that everyone watches when it rolls into the staging lane.

The heart of the truck is a 6.7-liter Cummins built by D&J Precision Machine, and it is bolstered by Hot Shot’s Secret and its FR3 Friction Reducer. The engine is a top-of-the-line model and costs more than a new Camry, and makes more than triple the power and torque, too.

Lavon Miller's drag truck makes over 2,000 horsepower and over 3,000 lb-ft of torque. Using a triple turbocharged setup, it makes over 120 pounds of boost.

Making more than 2,300 horsepower and 3,400 lb-ft of torque, you can imagine the sorts of stresses the engine goes through. Thankfully, FR3 comes in handy, and it’s a proven add-on that’s helped Lavon and his team.

“We’ve done independent testing at our shop on our chassis dyno,” states Lavon. “Using my 2016 Ram 2500, I did five baseline pulls and made 500 horsepower. Then I added FR3 and let the engine idle for 20 minutes, letting the FR3 work its way through. I did five more pulls within five minutes after, and saw an extra 14 horsepower averaged out over the five pulls.”

To help the engine, Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 friction reducer is applied. It has properties that help with engine wear, lubricity, and fuel economy.

“For me, that sells the product,” says Lavon. “It’s a product that reduces friction on the oil and picks up 14 more horsepower in a 500-horsepower application.”
