Ah, nothin left on that bank to bolt a head to, its ripped the deck off all the way to the last cylinder.

The "cackle" cars aren't supposed to really make any HP, they are ALL show. Just fire em up and let em make noise. Apparently the stock Chevy block don't even like that kinda load....

I don't know about that, Kim.

The fuel altereds were out and running 3.80's at 180 mph at our 1/8 mile track last weekend.

This one obviously didn't take the win....

Oh I hate to see that! Looks like the High Voltage Hayride car. They come test at Texas Raceway almost every Wed night. They went 4.06 @ 174 a couple of weeks ago. They run a lot of nitro in that one, reminds me of 60's-early 70's Top Fuel stuff with the flames at idle. Guess it will be a while before it's fixed.

Cackle cars is actually a group of nostalga cars that are allowed to fire up and Idle at major events. I have a customer here that is a nostalga car restorer, and has done two or three now.

They aren't allowed to make competition passes, as NONE of them are close to NHRA safety standards for anything in this decade.... (Most are 60's and such builds).

Now if by cackle car, he simply ment the loud pop of Nitro... my appologies, I misunderstood. Then it probably had a couple hundred Hp in it... lol.
