View Full Version : For those that asked...here's my race car (finally)

Thanks to Evans instructions I finally took the time to figure out the photobucket deal. This is a 2400 lb "Mud Rail" that races in the unlimited paddle tire class. Power is a 572 cu in Aluminum block Rodeck with a 14-71 Kuhl supercharger/ Enderle Birdcatcher injection/Mallory mag. On a fresh tune up the motor makes around 1800 hp. We race in 200ft long mud pits and our best time to date is 3.0. It should be in the high 2's after the engine is freshened again.

Don't link to your folder, use the "IMG" under the pic and copy it into THIS text block.

Someone will figure out your password and tinker with your pics or hijack your whole album.

What axels are you running?

06-10-2004, 12:21 AM
Run a D60 that I narrowed in the rear w/spool and 35 spl Strange axles. Will be changing that back to a 9" soon. And the front is a D44 out of a Scout. The front end is driven from a chain drive off the rear slipyoke (no transfer case).

Is the front end fully locked or open?

Front end is locked. It doesn't really matter though ..it usually carries the front end anyway.
Weird...yup, it's a hoot to drive as long as it goes straight.

That is nice....but it looks like a lot of work to only go 200 feet. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Mike, in a rough pit that is all you want sometimes. But you are right. Have to work on it for 2 weeks just to go out and make a few runs then start all over again. thats why I want to sell it soon and buy a CNC mill.
