Default Rex Rods Sling Shot



A few years ago, Keith Tardel (Rex Rods) had the idea of reproducing the old Chassis Research style dragster frames. He's done a few of the bare frames now, but until this weekend the world hadn't seen a complete running and driving car. Well, now ...

Steve could be onto a whole new thing.....video in portrait. I'm off to the patent office.

Oh yeah. That sounded really good. It's very cool to see the throttle arms on 8 carbs all move at once. It just makes it look very serious.

Considering how fired up steve was, I'm actually surprised he got any video at all. I mean, he is still giggling like a little girl on a sleepover.

I'm excited too... It's always cool to me when someone else gets to see Keith Tardel in his real element. It's incredible to watch a person that is so good at what he does... No one does it better, faster, or smarter.

So awesome!!!! That's like all my hopes and dreams for my '32 wrapped up in an even tighter more efficient package. From the Double Rocker Mill and Drag Pipes to the 6x2 intake sitting up high and mighty. Nothing subtle about that. Thanks guys.

I've been thinking about selling off my Chrysler and 6x2 EC6 because I know with hood sides a blister is inevitable and I'm not really in love with the idea of a huge tear drop shaped protrusion popping out the side of the hood. A desoto will still need one but it would be smaller because they are like an inch smaller on each side correct?

I don't want to go with a Doge Hemi because those are just gay. Just Kidding Jeff!! Haha!!! I would run one if I could find speed parts.


I can't wait to see some good video of this thing's first outing. There really nothing cooler.
