Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR

Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.

8000 horses clearing their throat!!
NHRA National Time Trials Phoenix 1-28-07. Doug Kalitta warming up his Top Fuel Nitromethan powered car at the Firebird raceway in Phoenix, AZ during the National time trials. I had to go to get my fix of Nitro cars. Check out the sound on this one, lol.





home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job (death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley carb. The Exhaust is running out open manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's. Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels. Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!





Winged Express AA/FA
The very famous Winged Express Fuel Altered piloted by Mike Boyd. Footage from many years, Includes that heart wrenching moment in 2005 when we watched the front wheel come off and the Wing hit the wall. Mike was okay, it was sad to see the Wing so badly damaged. One of the most iconic cars in drag racing history. The Wing was restored and is again doing what it does best!





Home made 4-cam hemi fire up #2
This fire up was to test the clutch. The idea is that you set the clutch to slip at a certain RPM, not only so it will not spin the tires at the hit, but so you can control the car to get it into reverse after the burn out and stage the car. You want to have just enough drag to where if your hand is off the brake the car will creep, but not so much that the brakes won't hold the car. You also want to be able to bring the RPMs to the point where the motor runs clean so when you hit it the motor picks right up instantly rather than having to catch up with the volume of fuel you're dumping in there; or worse, gag and die on the line because you're dumping more fuel in than it's ready to handle. Tommy was told to set it up so it will launch at 3000 rpm, so that's what I was zinging it up to in this video. It's kinda eerie. The car starts shaking and really changing tune. You can see Tommy come over and depress the clutch pedal, lock it, and then try to get the clutch to slip by using the handbrake... which if you notice, the tires aren't slowing down and smoke is just pouring out of the brakes. We also found on this run that the tach in the car is off by 100%. I was twisting it at 3000 according to the temporary tach in the seat, and the one on the control panel was bouncing around 6000. No wonder we hurt the motor last time out at the track. Tommy launched it at what he thought was 2500 RPM and it was obviously more like 1250, so that explains why the motor hydraulicked and hurt the bottom end. Back to the drawing board. We made some adjustments to the clutch and tried it again with much better results. but a 3000 launch rpm just seems awfully high. He ended up making a few phone calls and the Skuza's told him to set it up to launch at 2200 RPM. Much better on my nerves at least! I can't imagine having to do this on a 90% load of nitro... I'd better have my life insurance paid up. So we'll try it again tomorrow. BTW- the truck tires on the back are just to be able to get it to fit into the trailer, obviously when we're at the track we have full size slicks on it.
