Any drag racers in here? By drag racers I mean at a sanctioned track. Not the street racing alot of people call drag racing.
A little, but dont have a car for it at the moment. What class do you race in??
Pro Bracket right now, but I am looking at checking out some of the heads up classes.
I have given up drag for now moved more into track racing find it more of a
driving challenge, the amount of variation within strip racing is
relatively low and always looking for the minor adjustment , seems to be
more empasis on the driving . although im not that good at autograss its
alot of fun.
Working on a new funny car racer, wont be that extreme as i need it as a street legal aswell but should be alot of fun. Its just a pannel van with a 440SP MOPAR engine and a 727 'glide midmounted in space frame chasis. Should be good for 450 -500hp and reliable enough to drive to race days.
Sounds good. I have been thinking of doing some Open Road Racing, like the Silver State Classic, or the Nevada Open Road Challenge.
A street legal funny car? Yeah, sure, and next you'll want me to believe
that Gary Scelzi drives his Stratus to the grocery store.
Newsflash! A "727" is a Mopar 3-speed automatic transmission and a "'glide" (short for Powerglide) is a GM 2-speed transmission. Which is it, it can't be both?
I think this post comes under the heading of blathering on to sound like one of the guys. :banghead:

Different strokes, I guess.
Anywho, will someone lend me 6 grand for a rb26det swap? ^_^

Mykdiver, all the pics on your car Domain show you getting beaten!
Ummmm... a street legal funny car :screwy: are pigs flying yet! sorry but a funny car on the road sounds very dubious to me
Hey i drag race. i just got into it last year, but have been going to the race track ever since i was 9 months old. i have grown up around it and my dad has been trying to get me to do it ever since 8 years old LOL. But i won 2 times runner up a metal and track champion. so i think i did pretty good for my first year. ne ways im 15 and i race so how old are you :thumbs:
That is cool. It is nice to hear young kids getting into drag racing. Good luck this season. :thumbs:
Heyy I'm into drag racing too, been doing it for a few years, not easy to find areas in UK to drag, wondering to come to the US, know any good legit places??
There are tons of places in every state.
I've spent a fair share of time at the track...in the process of building
up the 'Bird for possible bracket competition...it's a daily driver and I
plan to keep it that way...I will be keying in on durability, reliability
and safety....pretty much just going for a quick tough as nails
That is not getting beaten, it is called bracket racing, the slower car gets a head start, then the faster car has to run them down. Both of the pics you are talking about on my Cardomain I won the race, then it rained out.
Thats a bunch of BS. Theres no such thing as a street legal funny car. Take
a look at any funny car, none of them are street legal.
I try to get to the track a few times a year. Dont get much of a chance but usually I just go for fun.
He said ge's working on it :banghead: If you did enough, I'm sure you could make just about anything street legal...
It might be possible to put tail lights and other stuff on it to make it street legal but I havent seen a single funny car that can be driven on the street.
