5th Scale BurnOut Time! FG Dragster Test Runs
Finally, I'm taking my FG Dragster out for a testrun. The dragster is
powered by a BZM 28.5 Torque Tuned engine which I dropped in a FG
Sportsline 2WD. I've converted my Sportsline chassis to a 1970's Dodge
Challenger, with lots of custom parts. In the video series you will be able
to follow this build from the very start, to the point where it will
finally start burning some rubber!
The custom servo setup works great, the BZM has massive torque, and I love
running this scaled down muscle car! A few alterations will be made in the
future, such as a bit thicker diff oil, and perhaps a different clutch to
make it engage a bit more aggressively. For a first run, I was more than
satisfied and this ride is everything I hoped it to be.

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.
