    Today from Pat https://patganahl.com/2020/03/02/feature-story/

    This is another one I never saw run, but knew well from the magazines. Finished in white with gold leaf and named the Tazmanian Devil out of Oceanside, NY, this 1830-lb. AA/A on a Chassis Research frame was credited with 9.63/159.86 times from its 6-71 blown 454-inch ’92 Chrysler. Hmm. Minus the blower and several cubic inches, this one’s a lot like my old Low Buck car…’cept mine was faster (am I allowed to brag, a little?).

    That little squiggle at the back of the front fender looks like a good layout for a "slot car" track..!

    This is either Mile Hall or Freddie Whittle in England. Mike later ran a front motor dragster using the same name and later (1990) Whittle revived the name on an altered--still a Bantam but not sure if it was the same chassis.

    Rob Fitzpartick with slant six Mopar power at Castlereagh International Dragway (or maybe Sydney International at the time)--same strip, just a few different names. The D/A class was for cars with pre 1963 six cylinder, straight eight or flathead power plants. There was a dragster class with the same criteria, both aimed at the budget racer.

    and street tires part of budget racer idea? I can see where that would limit what you would need to do horsepower wise.

    Those were most likely Goodyear road race tires. At that time in Australia real drag slicks were a little hard to obtain so (especially in the lower classes) most cars ran the readily available road race units. The first dragster that I drove (also a D class car) had Dunlop "green spot" treaded tires as they were meant for wet tracks and had a much softer rubber compound.

    Rooman, That is a nice dragster. Is that inline a Holden or?

    Ironically, I am finding that with today's ultra sticky track prep it is actually possible to have too much traction available for smaller engines. I am in in the process of switching from 12 x 31.5 slicks down to 10.5 x 29 stiff side-walled slicks for the upcoming season.

    Everything old is new again.

    now that's the kind of class' i can look at all night. bring on more pics of budget racers rides. those are the kind of cars most people can afford, not so much fuel altereds. nice to watch but it's more fun to drive down the track. i really like to see the cars of Australia. reminds me of American tracks back in the day when ingenuity was more common.

    BTDT. Got the photos. I hope he kept it upright.

    Reminds me of the quote, "RACECAR" backwards is RACECAR.
    RACECAR upside down is expensive!

    I thought maybe he was celebrating. Looks like he just ran a 0.99!
