    How much of that car is really a '34 Ford at this point? I'd bet less than 1%.....

    4500 HP? That's dragster territory as the speed implies. Wow I'd like to drive that!!!!!!!!

    This however is the world's coolest roadster.

    Worried your AFR's are off? Just take off the inspection cover and look at the colour of the flames.

    I will have to ask to Mike about that one. I know he helps out on that car, as well as makes the transmissions, and I think rear ends for it as well. For the lack of aero in that package, that is one STOUT run at 4200 above sea level.

    Just got off the phone to Mike. He did sell this team this engine, (as well as the transmission and rear end.) The engine has some nice stuff in it. Mike said that even though this is a high body car and not too good in the air, the car has a 320-330 in it the next time out.
    They are getting two runs out of a set of rear tires right now. On that last run, they slipped the tires the ENTIRE RUN!!!
    That is some serious poop!
