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.
Y-Block powered FED at Famoso Raceway
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.

Top Fuel Dragster World Cup Champion Loud Engine Sound Breaking Ears
This is a Dragster from World Cup Champion Top Fuel 1977, the woman Shirley
Muldowney in the car was the winner and the driver of the year. This was
the loudest engine sound I had ever heard. You can see me backed off
because it killed my ears! I couldn't hear anything after the engine
stopped. Personally I am not a big fan of this but why not share it. More
information can be found here:

Front Engine Dragster - Trailer
Home built Digger needs a homebuilt trailer - here's my answer to both.
Trailer uses on board air to tilt the deck as well as support the car
chassis during transport. My buddies make fun of it being overbuilt - but
that was all done with a purpose - I am very happy with the way it pulls!!!

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
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
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.
On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
