5th Scale BurnOut Time! FG Dragster Test Runs
Finally, I'm taking my FG Dragster out for a testrun. The dragster is
powered by a BZM 28.5 Torque Tuned engine which I dropped in a FG
Sportsline 2WD. I've converted my Sportsline chassis to a 1970's Dodge
Challenger, with lots of custom parts. In the video series you will be able
to follow this build from the very start, to the point where it will
finally start burning some rubber!
The custom servo setup works great, the BZM has massive torque, and I love
running this scaled down muscle car! A few alterations will be made in the
future, such as a bit thicker diff oil, and perhaps a different clutch to
make it engage a bit more aggressively. For a first run, I was more than
satisfied and this ride is everything I hoped it to be.

1968 Mk 2 Ford Cortina having a dice with a few other historic racing cars
in the Group Na, Nb & U2L Nc category.
According to the drivers wife (& pitcrew...) - "The car is regularly driven
to the shops for bryl hair cream. It's so slow that moss can be seen
growing on the moving vehicle. It needs more ponies unlike the Shetland
currently installed under the hood. And finally... the driver should be
driving the big gun EH Holden he owns!"
All i know is, is that the big driver and little Cortina never fail to

The story of CYCOV8, the trials and tribulations of a little Cortina that
lived life on the limiter. Burnouts, powerskids, drag racing and cruises
were it's specialty for so long.
However as they say, live on the limiter, die on the limiter!
