Still tryin to get her running for Roundup. Lookie.......
This place just amazes me ... just about the time you think you've seen all the great builds you can another one comes along!
What size are they and where did you get those front tires?
Those front tire's are 5.60x15 U.S. Royals on Radir 15x5. Got the tires from Coker. Gonna be a burnout machine!
I have been looking at those very tires on their website. They look good in person - should be a good match for my Hurst cheaters!
Yup, they do look good up close & yes they compliment the cheaters out back! Man I'm on the Jones for that first ride! My first & very own HotRod after all these years! I can't sleep nights. Probably won't for awhile after it's together either
Oh that is just badass! Can't wait to see it in 6 weeks!
DW, That is awesome dude! Have you fired that mill yet? Cant wait to see it at the Roundup. Looks like Bass might have some compition at the Drags.
That thing is awesome... can't wait to hear it!
No shit. What are the specs on the motor?
Nope, the mill has yet to be lit. It is an 010 chevy small block.
.030 over stock stroke
forged eagle crank, 6" scat rods, forged blower pistons, total seal rings
Brodix RR200 alumn. cyl.Heads, 72cc combustion chambers, total compression is 8.5-1.
Comp roller rockers
hydraulic flat tappet lifters
Comp cam, mild blower grind ( lift & duration specs escape me @ the moment)
Dyers 6-71 blower 20% underdriven, aprox. 7 lbs. boost
2 Demon 650 blower carbs
blah blah blah....
trying to achive that blend of performance AND drivability and hopefuly w/ some of the incidental dressup stuff added ( finned rocker covers, limefire headers etc...)it should not look all " Musclecarish" This is all backed by a Richmond 5 speed, Mccleod street twin and their hydraulic release bearing. Ford 9" w/ a tru-trac.
Still gotta plumb for brakes, fuel and gotta wire it among other stuff. Man all this liitle shit is killing me. Better get back to work!
beautiful job man.. should be alot of fun..
good luck with plumbing and wiring, i hate that part too!
That motor is going to sound wild...
That thing is going to be just wicked.
And loud! The car has no exhaust yet other than the headers and because Roundup will be the maiden voyage/1st shakedown run, It's not gonna have any for a little while. Hope the exhaust note doesnt drown the pleasant whirrr from the huffer.
Wow! That thing looks incredible. Hopefully, the FSM approves. You'll be touched by his noodly appendage.
FSM??? Would that be The Flying Spahgetti Monster? Or the Federated states of Micronesia?
David, you're kicking ass man!! Keep it up!!
i want that motor!! looks nice.
btw, don't hesitate to call if you need help with the electricals.
Aw shuks, that's the easy part. Might need some help drinkin a beer or two though!
Sweet motor!! I will make sure I wear ear plugs.
Looks fantastic! I thought my rolling chassis looked good.........!
