Dave, you're going to belt this one outta the park man. :D That rear end member looks nothing short of spectacular. B)

GREAT news on the body too.....hope it all pans out for you (and us :) ) as I can see maybe another 1/12 coming this direction, along with a 1/16 :D ..

So I have to sound stupid for just a second, and I am sure it wont be the last time :D . I have been reading on Pro Mod forums, and as you state Dave they all run full floater and even the other cars some suggest to run them if possible. Can you go into more detail as to what constitutes the rear end as being a floating rear end?

The other question then would be around the rear end housing. Do they most or all run some sort of 9" or 12 bolt GM rear housing instead of the MW 11" Modular format?

Dave... very nice dragster you got there. btw what is the differece between A/Dragster and a super comp dragster? is it the dial in times or do A/drasters not have a throttle stop like super comps? reason I am asking is because i have always wanted to build a super comp dragster model.

Dave.... thank you for answering my question. i see how it could be very complicated. i thought that they had different indexes and a few other differeces, but didnt realize there were so many. I know I have an older rule book laying around somewhere, but I should be able to download or order a current rulebook since i am a NHRA member. I really appreciate you taking the time out to explain all of this to me. thank you again. sorry to take this thread off topic.

As I've said before "your work is incredible" and you know your real cars as well. I like your dragster too! Ever thought about a replica of one of your real cars? Sometime I'll do a model of my old SG Nova. Keep up your great work!
