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.
Sehr Performance Machine / Randy's 292 Ford
Randy brought his 292s to us for a build. The first one had cracks in the
block and both heads. Block number two was a winner and gave us a good
place to start. After getting things all cleaned up and crack checked we
began bringing together his good parts and ordering what we needed to get
it where Randy wanted it to end up.
Scott had to do some modifications to bring this little Y block up to date.
A lot of the things that are normally available for current production
engines were never made for 292's and 312's so you either accept that as a
fact or adapt. We chose to adapt. Oil system mods were the first order of
business because the Y blocks had issues with poor oiling and we wanted it
to last. Scott also did a substantial amount of work in the heads and
intake to wake it up. About the last thing on board was a new MSD
ignition. Randy's original equipment was just too far down the road to
make it worthwhile to make it work.
Randy has said that he will probably never use all the torque and horsepower that is available
but it's good to know that it's there should he decide to set it free and
have some fun.

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.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

Front Engine Dragster - Trailer
Home built Digger needs a homebuilt trailer - here's my answer to both.
Trailer uses on board air to tilt the deck as well as support the car
chassis during transport. My buddies make fun of it being overbuilt - but
that was all done with a purpose - I am very happy with the way it pulls!!!
