Frame is all tacked up, 4-link is in. Need to build front crossmember/coilover mounts and mount the front 4-bar then finish weld all of it. Coming along slowly.

Love the wide five rims and the split window. you will have to be careful with the quick change when you launch even as light as you are

A 13sp woulda been tits! An auto will be better for speed objectives though. Cool project!

Thanks for all the positive comments guys. It's easy to get discouraged with a build like this. I'm 10 months in and barely getting to a rolling chassis. Should still be looking good to make at least part of next race season and Hot Rod Drag Week.

Thanks! Yeah, the quick change is really the biggest question mark in my mind as far as being able to stand up to the power. The guy I picked it up from a few years back said it was in a big block dragster and apparently lived. Not looking to make tons of power so hopefully I don't frag it on the first hit. We'll see.

Power is one thing but with twins and such torque will be higher then most big blocks by far. Still a awsome project. Can't wait to see the body on it.

I expected nothing less from you Tony. We'll see, without tons of power it should be a 9 second bullet. If the need arises, I know who to call.

Just finished the chassis last week. Need to work in steering and build motor plates before I paint the chassis section under the cab and install it for the final time. Cage should start soon and hopefully be almost done by Xmas. Finally being done with big parts of the builds feels good. Hoping to be done around May so I can have plenty of time to shake it down before Drag Week in September. Still a long way to go though.





Here's a mockup pic before I had to Z the front of the chassis to clear steering. I put everything together whenever I need motivation.
