According to a Street Outlaws racer, who has appeared on the show, a motor like in the picture ranges in price. He said that it could cost anywhere between $70,000-85,000, depending on what the team has done to it.
The same Street Outlaws racer said that most teams typically have just one motor. However, if they’re lucky, he said, they would have two. We do not know what the Bird Boyz situation is.
