4-ΑΩ TIN GOD! WHEELS UP BURNOUT! CRAZY PASS! 100% ORIG! 120" SLINGSHOT DRAGSTER!
John Metler's 100% all original "4-ΑΩ Tin God" Jr. Fuel Dragster is a survivor that was put away in 1972, only to be resurrected some 40 years later! The 120" wheelbase dragster with a Hilborn Injected 301ci with original rear gear, along with the original '67 El Camino push car that was also stored until this year, made an appearance at the Hunnert Car Heads Up Inaugural Event at Byron Dragway 9-12-15. First and only pass, straight off the trailer, results in a chassis flexing, wheels off the ground burnout and an insane wheel hopping pass, harkening back to the 60's with a email@example.com!
Motes & Williams Twin Engine Dragster at SRCA 11
The Motes and Williams Twin Engine dragster in action at SRCA dragstrip with Greg Cook at the wheel. Last pass had some smoke off the tires near the 330 foot cones, John and I made some changes in the clutch. Must have gone the right way, no smoke this run, but notice the black tracking. You see RC Williams behind me as I'm bring Greg to the line, he's running the tree on this pass. By far, Greg's best pass in this car, 7.68 at 193.99 Still room for improvement though, in 1970 this car ran 7.03 at 211.76

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.
