Firebird - Super Sedan SS/A... (update 3/6/12)

27 April 2012 - 02:33 AM

Hi everyone, welcome to my new build which hopefully I will be able to keep up and do another WIP.
After the disastrous effort of my last build (62 Thunderbird) which ended up being thrown across the room and stomped on, I'm actually excited about building this one.
It's been about 20 years since I built any drag model, so I'm not really sure how I'll go with this, I want to make it a bit detailed, but not over the top.
The inspiration I have gotten from you guys here on this site has been amazing, so I hope I can live up to your standards.

I have the colour scheme worked out for this, well in my head it looks good.
Essentially, the idea for this, is if it were my team and car that I am running. Sponsors are sorted and everyone is excited to be involved.
Not much of a start, just been cleaning up the body and started cleaning the rollcage, very tedious.
These are the wheels I think I will use, Pegasus, yet to be painted, but I think the rear tyres are too big, so I might have to go back the original kit ones.
Not sure which motor I will use, kit or I have this Ross Gibson one, I like the idea of a 811 cu inch motor.
I'm thinking that this build will suit the Top Sportsman class, TS/A, 'A' unsupercharged. Basically any motor, configuration, the car has to run faster than 8.5 seconds with a dial your own handicap.
I'm hoping it will run low 6's.
Anyway, thanks for looking, comments are welcome, please go easy on me.
Kane.
