Drag racers?

Home  \  Motorsports  \  Drag racers?

Any drag racers in here? By drag racers I mean at a sanctioned track. Not the street racing alot of people call drag racing.

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.

A what?

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:

What a waste of impreza! Those are AWD for a reason! A reason called RALLY.
Seriously, who makes a wrx rwd just to drag it >_x

Plus, its UGLY. No trunk lid. Haha. Nothing but roll cage-bar.LMAO
Different strokes, I guess.

Anywho, will someone lend me 6 grand for a rb26det swap? ^_^

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 street/strip car.

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.
