i was told to throw my build of the last 12 months or so up on here as you guys might like it, i am not too far from finishing it. it is a
Full Tube Chassis 1991 Dodge Datona, fibreglass front, steel rear half. 97inch wheelbase
Ford 4.6L 281ci Modular engine (same as the Aussie Boss V8 just less cubes) heads have been ported am still using the factory heads, block and crank.
2 x 1200hp ball bearing, billet wheel Precision Turbo's turbo's courtsy of new sponsor Dragons Lair Motorsports (turbo's coming March 2012)
Mark Williams 9'' diff centre w/ 9.5'' 3.89 diff gears
MW 3.5'' Aluminium tailshaft
2-speed Powerglide built by Norm @ Northmead Auto Centre
10'' Neal Chance bolt together Torque Converter
Fabwork done by GrooveRyder fabrications
16x16 Mickey Thompson Pro-5 wheels and 33x10.5W tyre
a Motec M800 will be controlling and logging everything, includes a high power CDI8. we are chasing around 1700hp which we should see on around 30-33psi on methanol. the car will be tuned by Shane Tecklenburg via remote tuning from the US (in layman's terms over the internet, he logs onto my computer and has complete tuning access) we will start off slowly as this is the first drag car i will have driven, unless u count the awesomeness of my everyday car which runs 14's@100mph low boost of 15psi, then 22 then 30psi. the ultimate goal if everything clicks together is to run a 6-sec pass @ 200+mph.
