440 Charger re-build Part #1
Valiant Charger approaching completion after 3.5 years worth of rebuild.All bodywork ,painting,fabrication engine build etc (for better or worse) was done by myself including the painted graphics.
A ride inside a 6 second 200mph Drag car.
Onboard footage with Darren White in his Dodge Dart at the Kwinana Motorplex in Western Australia.
Reaction time is abit off: 0.422 and he got off the throttle 1/2 second early. This is a new engine combo so this was pretty much testing :)
Valiant Charger re-build
Have you ever wondered just how much work is involved in a total nut and bolt rebuild of your dream car. This Charger was my dream, and a condition that i marry the missus, was that she'd let me finish the Charger. I started in Aug 06 and it was finally registered the thursday before the wedding, Nov 07! Anyway, my advice for the budding car craftsman, draw up a budget, get some money then double it!!!!
