Ford Model t speedster race car {ReBUILDING HISTORY the series}

From stock the modifications to this car start with the engine, where it has been fitted with a Ricardo aftermarket head, Bosch front plate distributor, counter balanced crank, aluminum pistons, and fitted with a period correct updraft carb, all together it pumps out around a whopping 30-40 hp. The modifications to the frame include -Lowering the car about 5 inches without dropping the front axle. -Setting the engine and driver, back around 6 inches. This is done to change the look of the car as well as help with weight distribution. -Also notice the period correct friction shocks on all four corners As for the gearing ,the rear axle has been swapped out for an original Hall-Scott two speed axle that has been stuffed with 3 to 1 gears . -Other than that I'm still running the original two speed transmission. Setup as a race car it is not uncommon for model T's to hit speeds upwards of 65.
