INSANITY REPORT (From your Southron Bro's...)

This is what is goin' on -

I plan to trump my very own Bosses ace by building up a drag truck with a Ranger II chassis, and the engine you see below once it is cleaned, modified, and bullet proofed for short tracks (1/8 mile).

It might take a while - the progress on this project will be documented in the TN chapter but you can follow it as we go.

Here is a link:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/56...ii-thread.html

That right there is a 351 Windsor - and we think we can get it up over 408...

You only thought I was crazy. How could you be expected to KNOW?

Qua, Pregunta, Was???

Did I forget to mention that I live 20 minutes away from Memphis Motorsports Park?

- You want to be careful of "PROFILING". There's a reason the eighth mile is important... It fine-tunes launches and reaction times so that the quarter is a whole new ballgame.

i live within 2 hrs of maple grove, englishtown, atco, MIR, capitol, cecil, and delmar is my local 10 min away

and i know all about the 1/8th its the first thing i look at on my slip that and my 60'...your preachin to the choir here...i also run a turbo car so the big end on the 1/4 is important to me...and my 60's are generally 1.6 on street tires so i know all about tuning...

Not happening - the frame is too short.

But anyway - short track is for fun. Also for getting everything right.

When I finally get to MMP - it will be to hand someone their own backside!

- I never do anything the easy way....

This build all by itself is going to seem like it takes forever!

It may take a while, but thats part of the fun. Make sure to take plenty of pics. I'm wanting a project like that soon.
