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.

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.

Rear axle is a Lincoln Versailles unit with 3.89 gears and a Richmond Spool. Tires are Hurst Racing Super Cushions in the front, and Hurst 30x10 Piecrust slicks in the back. Wheels are Vintage American Racing Magnesium spindle mounts up front (no front brakes) and vintage Shelby Cal 500's out back. Seats are set back almost to the rear seat. Gauges are a Sun Super tach, and vintage Stewart Warner oil, temp, amp. This is a period exhibition car, so it will not conform to current NHRA spec. The car is being built to the 1965 NHRA rule book. It has the maximum crank center height of 25", and near the maximum amount of engine set back as well. Maximum setback was determined by the wheelbase. You are allowed 10% of the wheelbase measured from the axle centerline to the first sparkplug hole.

Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010 - Twin-engine Dragster smoke-run.
Front engine, TWIN-engine dragster that was at the Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010. This was filmed at Beaver Springs Dragway. I had previously seen this car at the Wheels of Time show in Macungie PA in August. The car has two 392 supercharged HEMI engines. The smoke pass is almost required, not only because of the tires not being able to hold the power, but because it would surely break the drive train if it actually hooked!
