Vegas Hustler Wheel Stand
Mark Bishop hooks his Super Pro ET Dragster up a treat as he leaves the
line during Sunday evening at the 2009 Easter Thunderball at Santa Pod
Raceway UK. Mark normally has about 2 inches of wheels up when he runs so
this was a massive shock and caught him off guard. With a 60 ft time of
approximately one second there isn't much time to react. Chassis, steering
and wheels were damaged in the incident and Mark vows to be out again as
soon as funds allow. Ian Blackett

Making a Wheelie Bar and Dragracing Tires - FG Dragster
I'm working on my next project, another largescale onroad car. It's an FG
Sportsline 2WD 530. This car is going to be turned into a 1970 Dodge
Challenger! Today I'm making my own wheelie bar and a custom set of rear
I couldn't find any scale looking wheelie bars for this monster-to-be, so I
decided to construct my own. I took some Axial balljoints and rodends, that
I had as spares. These parts, listed in the links below, are intended for
the 4-link suspension setup of the Axial SCX10. By adding some M4 threaded
rods, slid into some 6mm aluminium tubing, I can line the whole
construction up for my needs. I added a modified bodypost from the same
parts tree to mount the top to the rear shocktower. On the rear, I slid
some of the aluminium tubing through the 4 rodends to connect them, and
used an Axial winchblock to act as a "wheel" in between them. The
functionality of the wheelie bar is not as important as the look. And, I
wanted to keep the cost low. A wheelie bar like this will end up costing
you around 20 dollar.
The tires I want to use on the rear need to have a larger diameter. I
sourced a set of rear 5th scale Formula 1 rims and tires, that I drill and
dremel out to fit to my Centerline rims. A link to the tires can be found
This build is going to have a ton of special features, a few of them rather
unique, and I will take you through the whole build process step by step so
if you want to, you can follow along. Make sure to subscribe to see what
the 2WD will turn into, so far I can reveal this much: it will pack a true
punch, will represent an icon of it's era, and will be unlike any RC you
have ever seen before!
