I notice the vic jr intake and is that a dominator carb? She looks like she will roll on pretty good! I went with the blazer because of the weight on the rear ( I was racing it pretty much stock body) then we went crazy with the chassis and knocked out the windows, replaced them, cut out allot of metal that we didn't need and ran 6.30 in a 8th. Now it's on the road as a kick *** toy! I built another drag car because it would not pass specs for the class I was in (NHRA rules are a bit**) thinking of switching to IHRA ( not so much headache involved).
This was a budget build and I done all the work myself. The cage is just a Halo kit that the track has not complained about yet. The intake is a Victor Jr. with a 1150 gas Dominator. The motor is a 461 BBC (454 +.030), Speed Pro Forged dome pistons, casting 215 heads that have been redone with 2.19 intakes & 1.88 exhaust Ferrea valves, mild porting & gasket matched, Comp cams 294S FT cam. Runs pretty good but as you know, us racers are always looking for more so we are still changing things.
