Default What's everyone workin on?

What do you guys got tore apart right now? Lets see some pics!!

I am currently planning an engine of some sort, lots of decisions to make and money to scrounge up. My father in law picked up another '79 from a member on this site that he will be running this year. Should be a decent runner, a far better rig then what he was running. It has a 521 on n2o.

This one is going to be a ranger for me. my wife is taking over the step side! That pic is a couple weeks old have since built my extended radius arms, and have been working on the rear suspension. It is a 95 Ranger frame I widened out to fit the bronco TTB front x-member in. I am bumping up a class so it opens up a whole new world on my limitations. The engine will set 6in behind the centerline of the front axle! which is just about 13in farther back than it is in the step side.

I'm planning on getting my motor done by spring. Then maybe start building some axles for some big tires. Here's a pic on what I have for the new motor

Hopefully get some ladder bars built and installed. Add a 300 shot and go play. I am going to go mainly to the Friday nite shootouts for cash and the heck with the points race.

In the mean time keep working slowly on a big cube engine in case the 300 shot don't work as planned LOL.

I can take pix if you want Its been really cold here and I haven't gotten heat in the garage so its at a stand still for another month or so.Nothing major used square stock and some cross members. I had it all together and than my front drive shaft angle was wacked and way to short, so I had to move axle forward. I used leafs not coils as well

Back is dove tailed well was its off now but will be once back togeher

Don't know yet. Still trying to get clarification from some of the tracks I go to. I don't want to limit myself to 1 or 2 places just because of my front shocks/coils where I can run all of them with the stock coil springs and seperate shocks.
