    Well I jumped into the smoke with the 69 front engine dragster by assembling and tuning the car and making it run a little over 2 1/4 seconds fast than last year,I went out and bought my own rear engine big block mopar dragster,with a 452 stroker and will be running it on alcohol and will make some where around 750HP with some better go fast parts.So we will be looking for mid to low eights and better,at around 185mph,wish me luck,mrmopartech

    Bob,thanks for the thoughts,as I am in the mist of assembly of the motor and tranny and wiring and awhole bunch of small things,to make it 100%.The 452 on alky should do fine as a starter motor,until I finish the 512.This should be real interesting starting this bitch up in the spring in the driveway,I am thinking a good amount of police and crazy neighbors,what you think,mrmopartech

    LOL... Well down here in SO-CAL.. Folks do that.... It just tickles me to hear one fire up in the late morning.. I'm sure most of your neighbors already know you are a car nut, So they wont be surprised.LOL. I think thats a great motor to go "Shack it down" with... Easy maintenance and more seat time would be just what the doctor ordered..That Alky can be very forgiving for building heat. It just goes in and out of the motor so fast.... :)
    Sounds like a boat load of fun....

    With the alky system that I just bought(Ron,s toilet system) for 500$US complete and getting it tuned by BJR racing in Dallas Georgia,it should be very close to correct as bobby has one on his 1100HP dodge dart,so being some 1200 pounds lighter,it,s going to be a DEPENDS moment for sure.mrmopartech

    The digger is in the garage and is dismantled and being refitted to my motor and my 727 that I turned into a shortie 3 speed,hooked to a 9" ford with 4:10 gears and 33" tires.Just about evry night I do some thing to have it ready for the spring,mrmopartech
    Since the wife works at costco here in montreal canada,I get a much better deal on pallet full of depends dippers,so each weekend take a six pack of depends and we are good,guess I will have to install a toilet in the trailer,mrmopartech

    I need to find out what splinde the output shaft is so I can order the coupler to match the 20 tooth 9 inch ford female coupler,and mark williams sells some and S&W also sells the,and I have the one that came with the car,a powerglide couple and locking ring for sale for half price,mrmopartech

    last weekend I put together the shortie tranny for the digger,and this week welded up the coupler gear for the tranny/diff.Now we can cut and shape the rear tranny mount and the mid mount,then on to the motor install,mrmopartech

    This weekend,I am finishing the trans cooler bracket,shifter mount,cut cooling holes in the bell housing,mounting the MSD 7al-3,do some wiring,some maching on the the wing spars and sheet metal.I am looking for some side scoops for the radiator.The frame has two big triangle shape support bars and the rad behind me about 6-8 inches back of the roll cage,so I figure 2 good size scoops for air cooling,would be just right if there was a mopar scoop I cold install,as the car is being done in plum crazy purple,and being called (PLUM CRAZY) with a ralley wood grain dash.If any one has a idea for a side scoop ,post or send me a email with pics.So it,s back to the shop sunday morning to do some more work.At this point to get the car parts,trailer,motor,tranny,we are going to be at a 18-20 grand dollar count to make the first run,and do some testing,So you want to go racing on the cheap side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,mrmopartech
