Dom these are some nasty motors, although you would need some custom stuff to make it work, ie clutch housing, the 75 and the 100 are crazy.

Looks great. Besides frog tape, are you using a MIG or TIG for the welding?

PostSubject: Tig   Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:11 pm

Should have been at the show to see the Funny car.........Tig welding only. Smile Im thinking you really cant mig this Tubing togather with any authority. Ive been welding since 1981... Tig welding all my life... Mig welding is designed for dumping a whole lot of metal in a quick time. I wouldnt attempt it with a mig welder.. Maybe some one can but I surely could not.

Im using Silicon Bronze wire for the prototype Funny Car and Dragster But Im thinking 70s2 or 80s2 for the frames on the other ones.... Jurys not out let Laughing

PostSubject: Mounted the wing   Sat Mar 03, 2012 11:57 am

I figured out where I want the wing and reworking that dragster body...Bought it for a 100 bucks a while ago and new it needed reworking. Im going with the new section and a canopy cockpit like the Army Dragster.. The solid pins are only tact welded for now because I am now figuring out where I want the rear axle mounts.....I am Making my dragster frame sit an inch of the ground to match my funnycar....

Todays project.......Turning my dragster body with an open cockpit to the new Amry top fuel dragster enclosed canopy....


It will be a plug for now till summ time comes......Things Im thinking about......Make the front wings part of the plug or not and if I want the canopy removal or not....also adding the side flap wings right behind the driver......

Finally Picked WHERE I WANTED the motor to go.....Pretty much dead center in that back area. Mocked up the headers and welded them to the table so I can remove the motor casing and zenoah and start on them. That dragster is not moving from that table till the headers are done Next is the bending of the 1/2 inch tube....I tried one and it didnt go so well so figure Ill figure some more Laughing

Yep.........They telescope in and out perfectly Pete.........I love the 2 piece......Im gonna hate drilling them holes to keep it in place.....Rest assure Im figuring some other type of attachment Very Happy

I think Im ditching the fiberglass body for now......Drawing up a new body to be bent out of aluminum...One piece with the nose all in one shot.

The fiberglass is to big of a body......I may save that for a 1 piece dragster

And still have no clue on the canopy let but havent started designing that part......

These TOYS are just fun Stuff to build Very Happy
