Y-Block powered FED at Famoso Raceway
This is me (Tim McMaster) and my Y-Block Ford powered front engine gas dragster Elwood. It's our first time running the 1320 at Famoso Raceway just north of Bakersfield, CA in Oct. 2010. We did fairly well for our first time out, the car ran great and had very few problems. All this on my spare pickup engine.

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.





338ci Y-Block Ford dragster run.
Fire up of the 338ci Y-Block that was ment for my pickup but is now the temp. dragster engine for the Oct. 9 Eagle Field meet. The 322ci Y will go back in once I get my new head gaskets. The cam is noticebly more mild since it was ment for the street. This is the same cam profile the Bing Simmers has in his '56 effie motor. ;-)

Good Guys Grand National Car Show 2013 - Part 4: Vintage Slingshot Dragsters
This episode covers the skin-tingling roaring engines coming from the 1960's Vintage Slingshot Dragsters from Good Guys Grand Nationals in Del Mar. These bad boys are fueled by Nitromethane (What rockets use!) so you can imagine the power they produce. These engines rumbled through the crowd and gave goosebumps down my arms. There's also a special treat at the end of the video for you guys. Be warned, this video is loud due to these roaring engines, make sure your sound is at a bearable volume.

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.
