Injected Alcohol Milodon Hemi Fire Up
We almost always save fire ups for the track but in this case we needed
make sure everything was in check before we hit the track since we never
ran this combination before. Installed in Matsuda Racing's nostalgia front
engine dragster. 484 Milodon Hemi. Weiand tunnel ram, Enderle bird
catcher, Enderle 80A fuel pump. Vertex mag.
Front Engine Dragster built in five months
In December 2009 I got the idea that it would be fun to have a FED so I
asked a few questions and read a few threads on the HAMB. After wieghing
all the advice and suggestions I bought a set of Mark Williams blue prints
and got started. With the help of a good friend or two I had a can the was
ready to race at Eagle Field in May 2010.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and

line up behind the Christmas Tree.

drag strip last week....I included a short clip of it at the end of the
