Hey all,
I'm currently on the way of building a small tire drag car. Is anyone interested in following? Lmk. If anyone here has a similar type car? I'd like to hear from you. Chassis is at LJ Race Cars in Teague TX getting a CM 25.3 cage and tubular k member. The motor is a Dart Big M with Bullet Cam, T&D rockers, Black Mamba lifters etc. Turbos are Work custom 480Sx. Atomizer injectors. Aeromotive fuel system and Wilson manifolds intake. If any interest let me know

yep, seriously interested.....sounds like you will be needing deep pockets on this project.....
Lol, how did you know? Started as a sbc Nitrous car. Nothing serious. Morphed into a junk yard turbo bbc. Then after being told my block wouldn't hold 1k HP. So it started.

This is after I started the body work. Second photo was taken the day we took it to LJ Race Cars. I'll look for my total before pics then start adding work that's been done so far

This car may also try its luck at some radial racing. I considered an LS power plant. Too rich for my blood. You can do some fairly reliable hp numbers at 1k-1200hp. Above that it gets really expensive. My choice of the BBC was cost based. Due to machine shop wait times, I stayed away from nitrous. Turbos being a little easier on parts. I'd like to hear about your build as it comes along. What part of the country?
