During Season 4, Chuck introduced a new car with the same twin-turbo 41x combination that had brought success to Ryan Martin in Season 3, securing a championship. However, as the season progressed, it became evident that this twin-turbo setup, while powerful, was struggling to maintain consistency. The emergence of purpose-built NPK cars equipped with substantial financial backing altered the landscape, leaving some seasoned racers, including Chuck, behind.

A notable trend this season has been the shift from twin-turbo to procharger setups, as demonstrated by prominent racers like Giuseppe Gentile and the Murder Nova. Both drivers moved away from the twin-turbo configurations and found success with prochargers. Giuseppe Gentile, now in the top 10, and the Murder Nova, solidly in the top five, showcase the effectiveness of this alternative setup.

Acknowledging the challenges he faced, Chuck openly admitted that sticking with turbos this season was a mistake. Many racers from the 405 crew, to which Chuck belongs, have already embraced prochargers, emphasizing their speed, consistency, and easier tuning compared to twin-turbo configurations. It seems increasingly likely that Chuck will follow suit in the upcoming season.

Despite the inevitable changes, there is optimism that Chuck will regain his competitive edge. Recognized for his racing prowess and accomplishments, including securing the number one spot in the 405 show with his Mustang on big tires, Chuck is no stranger to overcoming challenges. Even in the previous season with a turbocharged street car, he demonstrated exceptional performance.

As Chuck contemplates his next move, there's anticipation that he will transition to a procharger setup. Many within the racing community believe this shift is not only logical but necessary for Chuck to remain competitive in the evolving landscape of NPK. While turbocharged cars undeniably carry a unique allure, the prevailing sentiment suggests that prochargers may be the key to future success in No Prep Kings.

As the off-season unfolds, enthusiasts eagerly await Chuck's decision and hope for a resurgence that will solidify his standing as a formidable contender in No Prep Kings Season 7. While the future of turbocharged cars in NPK remains uncertain, the prospect of Chuck embracing a procharger setup adds an intriguing layer to the evolving dynamics of street racing.
