Sorry but those aren't "zoomies" as in top fuel zoomies, those are extended fender well weed burners.....and why would you want to fasten them to the car? They have to be able to move a little as the engine torques.

Without having a collector that all four pipes feed into, you are really killing potential power. 50+ HP and Torque.


If these are for looks and you don't care about power...or are running a blower - then carry on.

I see your point about moving and this is why I asked.

the car hooks very well pulling the front tires off the line but wrinkle the hell out of the sidewalls with stiff sidewall slicks and tubes with 13# air.The SS springs are for 3800# car and mine is 3900 with me in it[scaled]

My engine/exhaust actualy moves very little with having a front engine plate but with the the thrust of the exhaust I worry.I guess I will have to weld them togather and see how much I can make it move pushing on it.

If your concerned about movement, strap all 4 together and put a rubber mount up to the 'frame'.

I was thinking about a short rubber mount!The car is for race but I made a collector for it as in my pic on the track above but I needed to redo the turnout so I started on the zoomies for fun.I may be able to go off the fender clip with a short rubber or even wire cable.

I would think about tethering them. Maybe the cable idea that NHRA requires. The kits usually sell for 120 or so. Southern Rods n Customs has em for a lot less and does some custom lengths. Looks pretty easy to fab; this link is more for ideas than anything. Weed Burners R Cool! Tommy Ivo loved em. They may give up power though, as has been said

Affordable Collector Tether System NHRA Approved

Keep the tubes from hitting the frame or body. Flat strap, welded across all 4 tubes on top with a tab and a hole. Put a corresponding tab and hole welded to the body seam. Attach the 2 tabs with thick reinforced rubber strap using 5/16ths bolts and nylock nuts.
