Now does this have to be built into a dragster since this is in the dragster section or can it be a regular kit?

Just so I understand.... this is an on-line build, of a dragster or drag car? Pro Mod, ProStreet, Gasser... it doesn't matter?
As long as it's "out of the box"?

And the rules are, there aint any rules????!!!!

Thanks for the invite. I would put something together but have too much on my plate at the moment. Shame this wasn't earlier, as I am almost finished with a 10.5 style 66 Nova. I just started a 69 Barracuda running slicks, but wouldn't call it a drag car. After those get finished up I have at Torino to build up for a guy at work. Looks like I have the next couple months filled up.

Good luck guys and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Sounds like fun... ;)

how 'bout aftermarket stuff... :P

I have the funnycar body, blower and top hat from Competition Resins, Slixx Decals and the latest Revell Funnycar kit to build Ron Capp's 2006 Brut Funnycar...have not started - so can provide photos of all parts, etc - gives me a good excuse to build this sucker ;)

can also throw in a plastic model kit for da winner

and

Raul will be hard-pressed to finish this build in the time frame alotted...so he probaly shouldn't be considered the 'slam-dunk winner' as yet... B)
