Front Engine Dragster built in five months
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.

Big Block Chevy Vega Wagon Wheelie
A little too much launch RPM resulted in the car hitting the wheelie bars and staying there. I lifted to get the front end back down. I then got right back on it and it jacked the front end right back up. I lifted again and aborted the run. 4,000rpm launch which is still a full 1,000rpm BELOW the engines peak torque! Crushed 4 primary header tubes on this pass.

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.
