Front Engine Dragster - Old Flames Racing

This shot was taken at the world famous Paris Drag Strip. There's nothing like the smell of a burnout and having to shower the rubber dust out of your hair. Drag racing in a front engine dragster is very unique. You can't see directly in front because the engine is in the way. You can reach out and touch the rear slicks which are about 4 inches from your shoulder. The rear differential is right between your legs. My favorite part is the burnout.

BIrd's Eye View from the Injection Stack of my Front Engine Dragster. I actually got a teeny tiny amount of air under the front wheels during the burnout - that may be a first.





Nostalgia Dragster
My dad's Flathead powered Nostalgia front engine dragster. We broke a piston at our last race and couldnt get pistons in time for this one, so we machined our own on the lathe and balanced them and everything. The car ran a 13.40-something or other in this run, which is about what it will do. Next years plans include 331 Chrysler Hemi
