The Valley Speed FED: fired for the first time
Tim Conder fires the Valley Speed Front Engine Dragster (FED) for the very
first time at the shop in Sonoma, CA with help from Pete Jensen, Chris
Bochoko, Rex Hutchison and friends. AUTOCULTURE was there to record the
event ten years in the making!
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.

Top fuel dragster on board video
On board video from Scott Palmer's top fuel dragster making a test pass
down the 1/8 mile at the Street Machine Shootout at Ozarks Raceway. This
is quite the ride!
On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
