Derrick....this is sure coming together nice. Man seeing everyone build a big scale pro mod has got me thinking that I may need to build a 1/16th scale Pro Mod one of these days. Seeing these builds are an inspiration. I look forward to more progress on this project.

Your P/X Camaro is looking good, like the chassis build, I noticed you mentioned checking the NHRA rules,is your build going to be a ADRL P/X car or a NHRA P/M?, being as their rules are a bit different, as is stated in another post the ADRL does allow nitrous on the supercharged cars, the ADRL also (as stated before) allows nitro in the SC cars(the rules being a thicker firewall, & restrictions on the type & size blowers plus the amount of overdrive on the blowers),turbochargers are also allowed in the ADRL on SC cars as are duel magnetos. I am in the process of building a P/X car in 1/25th scale (soon to start posting), so I checked the rules for the ADRL's P/X & P/N classes, and when I had a couple of questions concerning certain rules not mentioned (the magnetos for ex.), I sent a e-mail to their tech-adviser asking 3 questions, I received answers a day or so later so that I could build my car as accurate as possible. Keep up the good work, like this build.

Looking good! When I get to that stage of the build on my P/X, I was going to do a normal 4-link set-up, but after looking thru some old Drag Racing Monthly magazines, I thought I'd go ahead & try a different rear suspension set-up, something you don't see too much.

O-K you asked for it.I'm planning on building a swing-arm rear suspension (developed by Murray Anderson from "down under") for my '71 Dodge Demon P/X.It's one of the questions I asked the tech at the ADRL to make sure it is a legal set-up, it is, so I'll try & put one in.
