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.

This is me (Tim McMaster) and my Y-Block Ford powered front engine gas dragster Elwood. It's our first time running the 1320 at Famoso Raceway just north of Bakersfield, CA in Oct. 2010. We did fairly well for our first time out, the car ran great and had very few problems. All this on my spare pickup engine.

Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.

Homemade 4-cam hemi dragster- alky fire up
Tom Dicktakes' homemade 4-cam hemi. Based on a Donovan 417 block, Tom has spent 40 years building the 4-cam heads out of his garage with a Bridgeport and an Atlas lathe. Here's a fire up on alky after Tom put the motor back together after it hurt the bottom end last year on a test run at Sacramento raceway. My usual job is to start it and then check oil pressure and cylinder temps to makes sure there isn't any of them running too lean. We were down a guy today, so Tommy had me manning the fuel for the first time, hence my constant look of concern throughout the whole video. You can't see it, although you can see the red air tank on the bottom- but I'm standing by a pressurized fuel tank so after the motor is primed and started on gas (the squirt bottle) I bring in the alky with a regulated valve on top of the auxilary fuel tank. While the motor is running I'm monitoring the amount of fuel by the RPM (an electronic tach is in the seat) and the misting at the pipes. You can hear the engine pick up as soon as I dial back the alky a bit. I'm also trying to get a look at the oil pressure at the top end of the motor. All my pointing is to show Tommy that we're down on pressure. We shut it down because the pump feeding the top end with oil didn't come up to full pressure. You stop the motor in reverse- I reintroduce the gas in the primer bottle as I slowly close the fuel tank with the alky, so it runs on the bottle and I can shut it down with gas. More work in the garage! Next time we should do another fire up to make sure the top of the motor is getting enough oil, then if it works, we'll be ready to take it out to the track again and run it on nitro.
