Finally Done!!

I am finally finished with my new American Racecars dragster assembly. I sold my old dragster last spring and ordered this one in the summer. It was delivered in Oct. as pretty much a bare base car with + a complete rear end assembly. It was too late to race last year, so, I've been slowly putting everything together as a one man show. It took a little longer than I would have liked due to life and $$ getting in the way, but I think it turned out pretty good.

I think this car is a good example of what can be done on a limited budget if you stick to the plan and do the majority of the work yourself.

Special Thanks to:
Travis and Mark @ American Racecars
Eric Boyd and Steven Farrow @ Flintstone Motorsports
David Willingham @ Advanced Motorsports Engineering
Tim Murphy @ The Fab Shop Headers
Trey McDonald @ Trey's Autobody, Jacksonville, Al

Oh snap!

Good looker David!

How much faster do you think it'll run compared to the slipjoint.

Should be a smooth ride.

Looks great David, can't wait to see it run at Owensboro. I keep looking for the doors but you hid them well. If it is like it was last year get ready to set a new personal best in ET and speed because Phillip will have the track ready, I can't wait.
