:welcome:


Can't see a better place to put this as its not really technical, Im just wondering if someone can offer some advice and insite into the world of nostalgia drag racing. I bout the makings of a 60's front engine dragster and am taking the off season to rebuilding all the components to make it as safe and fun as possible next April. So any input would be great or if your experienced in this field and wouldnt mind letting me pick your brain please email me at [email protected]


Thanks
Chris

You can build it how you want but it needs to pass inspection to get on the track. Send your first post to "techinspector1" by PM and he will fill you in on the safety issues. He won't accept E-mail, so you need to find a post by him on this site. It's not hard to find him, he has his mug shot on his profile. :D

It sure looks cool, the classic sling shot rails will always be classics.
When a guy I knew showed up at the dragstrip with one, I thought "that would be cool to drive" until I looked in the cockpit, When I seen that the pumpkin was right inbetween his legs my thoughts right away went to "Ain`t no way in hell I`d drive that thing! if the diff explodes you`ll be referring to your mid section in the past tense!"
