    We ran a flip cap on our Fuel Altered, drilled a hole through both cap and base, and put a roll pin to disable. Chet at Fremont checked each time we pulled to the line, but always passed.

    Thanks for the new set of photos, those are really nice. Your blog is a lot of fun to read and great photos.

    The tank I have has a locking mechanism on the flip top.

    By the way, I'm running a big block Chevy in mine. It may not be 100% perfect but I'm just trying to catch the vibe of those old warriors.

    I'm trying to decide whether to go with that style or the motorcycle style wheels . I'm leaning toward the Radars, but they're pricy.

    Yeah, I paid dearly for them and the rear wheels too. It hurt to part with the cash, but I love'em.

    I wonder if this would be a (if you build it they will copy) type car

    Im so tired of going to the dragstrip and seeing mustang's nova's, camaro's & chevelle's !

    I started going to Detroit Dragway in the late 60's in the glory days when sling shots,

    altered's and funny cars ruled the place !
    it was the tail end of the gasser wars

    and a wonderful time in drag racing .

    I would love to build one of these with a multi carbed small block chevy & a foot braked glide run E85 and a small radiator to drive all the way back to the pits
    throw on a set of pie crust slicks ... race all summer and not worry about breaking anything !

    question is How would the gang at No Hot Rods Allowed deal with it?

    how crazy would they be if I set the thing up to run low 12's high 11's?

    would I have to wear a full suit? I would under stand the arm restraints because of being an open cockpit
    but would you really need the pants boots gloves neck roll?

    I have my fuel tank with an Aeromotive A1000 in tank pump and radiator, fans and electric water pump all tucked under the turtle deck. I'm going to ride mine on the street a little, zoomies and all! They have removable baffles but the Po-Po still might not see the humor....

    I think you could get one into the 12's without trying hard with a mild small block. Build it!!

  15. It's all about the safety.Meeting the rules for the speed you will go.The carbs will need a scoop,so fuel can't blow back onto the driver.A open cockpit the driver will need a full face helmet,yes arm restraints are manditory.A single layer jacket,non-flamable shoes.
    My question to you is: Why would you not want to wear a full fire suit and shoes,and neck collar?

    Sounds like a fun car. I'm going to build mine to cert to 7.50 to stay in the good graces of the tech officials.

    It sounds like you are building it well.
    It should be awesome! It makes my day to be at the track or a show and see someone there with a really cool old FED or altered.
