    I was thinking a TE 440 with a Pontiac 3rd and 4th gear tranny and throw the lid label and all at it for some 1/4 mile tire smoke.

    That would do it, hi gear only, but I must be getting old because after the 1/8 mark I start getting low in the seat! Hahahhahhaha

    Well Rocky looked like he was having fin on first 2 runs. 1st run kind of forgot to turn on nitrous so wrote himself a note for second pass.

    Just a question from a guy that really want to put one together.
    Do you run an open rear diff or is it locked.
    Thanks James.

    My friend Dan Sullivent caught this moment that confirms why I couldn't see anything because of the smoke. The windscreen I added created an area of low pressure that allowed smoke to gather right before my eyes

    A quick summary of the Twins evolution starting in 2011. It has been a fantastic journey with much help from friends new and old, now besides a little maintenance (I hope) we can enjoy the ride!

    2017 will mark the return of the TWIN to the Meltdown Drags! The Twin is done complete with paint and chrome and we will try and redeem our poor performance in 2014 with the recap tires. I found the recaps do not offer any forward bite or tire smoke on a prepped track and have found positive results with M/T Drag Radials.
