Its almost ready! Needs a swivel for the drive line, exhaust pipe, smaller front tires, some brake throttle issues, and some paint. But other then that, it is ready to go. I made my own engine mount today. Couple of shims under it here and there and it should work (fingers crossed). Hope to have it under its own power by the weekend. Roger.

The rear wing came with the car. It came with lexan side dams but i decided to go with 1/8 aircraft plywood. i still need to seal the wood and paint. There are several dragster owners on here that should get ya started in the right direction in making one or buying one. Roger.

What is the overall length on it? Been thinking about making one this winter while I wait for the snow to melt.
