A fresh engine as it was is probably a good place to start racing. Improvements can be made at anytime.When bracket racing,showing up regularly is the most important part

I would begin at the front of the car, removing anything and everything that is not necessary to the operation of the car, but still leaving it drag-race legal. Invest in some good-quality hole saws.

Cut large holes in your car to remove extra weight.
