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.
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.
