Um, if I had ten thumbs Derrick, (sometimes feel as though I do....:lol: ) YOU would be getting ten thumbs up from this 'ol geezer....:lol:
The chassis is really taking shape mate, looking fantastic and clean.
(ps; got a Time Bomb bookmarked on you'know'where...)

I know the feeling (all thumbs and so times toes :P ) But we keep building, Thank for looking in.

Looking most excellent Derrick. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Quick question, and please don't take this as criticism..:lol: Things may be a little different over there, compared to our cars down here....:D
I was going to install batteries in my builds, and my nephew (crews for a local racer) told me that blown motor cars don't need batteries....?? ;)
Hence the portable starter that they use....:angry: Maybe Comp can clarify that for us. :lol:

Keep her coming mate, all this is being stored for when I finally start mine. :lol:

i can only tell you what i know. if some one out there has an uncle bob and he owns something different, great. the blown pro mods that I AM aware of, do not self start. the rules don't require it and it's a ton of weight to penalize yourself with. they still carry a battery (although not a physically large one) to power all of the electronic gizmos and doo-flickers. i was taught a pic is worth a thousand words. here's my thousand words.

will that help?

EDIT: the car pictured is a ADRL PX car. i did some quick research and NHRA pro mods are required to be self starting. although they allow the use of remote battery packs for starting only.

derrick, the picture you're showing is a display chassis. while the engine is a blower motor. it also has two green speed tech nitrous bottles on board. the display shows a multitude of options to the potential buyer.

those bottles in the picture would be fire bottles. the adrl rules are really pretty wide open compared to...well...anything. you have no minimum weight, no max. cubes. use gas , methanol, nitro and even add nitrous. i believe one of the few restrictions is no nitro if you run a screw blower

Dave is correct. there is a small power source so you can run the fuel pump and ect. also so you can check your valves,springs to adust when your jogging the motor between rounds with out physically turning over the motor completly. Cant afford to waste that fuel.(ha ha).
