yeah Tim..You called me from the road yesterday..Do you have a Model A Body now?
Oops nevermid, read your facebook update..yikes...that sucks...you'll find one!
OK Tim whats going on??????
I know but won't tell.
Would the weight be better there or would it be better directly over the axle or just in front of the axle?
Being a guy who ends up throwing weight in the truck for traction in the winter I find that weight right at the tailgate tends to make the truck a bit light on the front wheels.
Just another Y block holding devise...LOL !
Nope! gonna sell my O/T TR6 and I just sold my TRW motorcycle yesterday for funds so the ball is rolling, so to say. Jake and Elwood will have a new Y-Block powered stable mate. Anyone out there have a good '30/'31 A Tudor body for sale?
Ain't nothin' holding. This thing is gonna "GO!"
Sounds like another good idea Tim!!
I help on a Roadster and a Lakester.
The roadster is out of power by the 4, so weight is not an issue. More weight for more traction dosen't hurt. And the car was to a wind tunnel last year. Knowledge gained from that allowed it to run 204+ this year. And qualified for a record, but did not back it up. Previous top speed in 2010 was around 185.
The lakester, on the other hand is on a diet. We have good traction and the car is still accelerating out the back. So WE ARE drag racing. This year we made 8 passes. All eight were 300+. But the record we are going after is a 315 average between 4 and 5. We had a high top speed of 313.6. We are the first unblown gas lakester to reach 300 on carburetors. Two regular Holley 1050 CFM dominators.
You have pictures of those cars? I know I have seen them posted on landracing but I forget.
I hate to highjack Mctim's post with OT stuff, but.
Here's two of the lakester. One with ashphalt tires at Loring ME. The other at the line at the salt.
The roadster. I don't have any of. It's just a brookville 32, black. Just like most all the other STR cars. Runs a Dutwieller 260 CI V-8 in E.
OK, I was pretty sure you were with THAT lakester. I stopped by the pit but you guys were pretty busy.
great build, your thread made for a awesome read. keep up the progress
