I was thinking something more like these
One more thing. You say you want to race against the Bugattis and Bentleys et al, so I assume you are wanting a race car rather than a hot rod. If...
If you have that much contact Ron Kelly
And be prepared to borrow a little more...
Lots of questions!
If I were you and on a limited budget, I would try and keep things simple for now. A stock uncut Model A frame...
Supercharged and ohv
Only a couple of hours away from me then Dom. Can't say I know Saffron Waldon but used to travel to away games at Haverhill RFC back in the day....
Whereabouts are you in the UK Dom? I'm in east Suffolk right now although heading back to AZ early in the new year. If you don't have a spare A...
While I'm here, does anybody know how much hp it takes to run the water pump?
Happy Xmas to all
There are various check lists on line for stock setups. Here are a few
HAL powered McDowell that did 112.9mph. Much respect
Brian's banger powered A400 with GEM ohv conversion
Half mile course + 110 yards through the traps
So back home - vids uploading so some more pics
Didn't get the camera out on Saturday, too much catching up with people, looking at cars I'd not...
Here you go Fuggles - I got your best side :):):)
So it's that time of year again when the VHRA put on the Pendine Sands Hot Rod Races on the sand at Pendine Beach in South Wales, UK
Did that come from Sammy at AZ Model A?

Good looking set up Darren
Looking forward to seeing it run at the weekend
Check the banger dyno run results on that other forum for info on vol...
I saw this one in Chandler a few years back. Outwardly stock except the 16's
Another sacrifice to the god of speed Gav
Has nobody got any pics or video of Jim Turnbull going through the traps backwards at 39mph?
And this is too good not to share
Watch how the Old Master does it.
No drama, no wheelspin, no sideways. All in a straight line
Still, third fastest
Better than mine so here's some more video of all (150? 170?) cars coming back down the beach after the final run on the Sunday...
HAL McDowell on the sand at Pendine last weekend
96.2608 mph (half mile course + 110 yards through the traps)
Speeds are up!
Oi Todd - coming next year???
Great pics as usual Chris
As a reward, I'm going to shamelessly rip off your gear linkage idea
Anyway, more pics from me
Matt retained his crown and improved his record I think
