  1. King Cobra drag car

    Yes I made a set for him to include in the Dragonsnake trans-kit.
  2. King Cobra drag car

    The small block drag racing headers are different in that they have only (2) pipes (in lieu of 4) coming to the collector. The set I made for my 289 Dragonsnake

    Appreciate you confidence in me Snake I'll keep studying it. Thanks Drew. I put a lot of effort in choosing the wheel/tire combos and the stance. Miss on those and that can really bring a build down, IMHO.
  4. Heller Talbot Lago GP

    I finally picked up one these kits and am quite impressed with it so I'll be taking notes Scott.
  5. Thanks Sam. The kit was recently re-issued so it shouldn't be hard to find one. I'm planing to add a bit more juice to the engine so stay tuned.
  6. Thanks for the heads up Eric! Those look closer to scale thickness than the turned aluminum pieces I've seen.
  7. King Cobra drag car

    You can see the stock exhaust exiting the bottom of the collector and possibly a muffler just under the car. A tail pipe appears to be sticking out the back. I'm guessing it was to comply with class rules
  8. Aardvark Maserati Tipo 61

    Turned out great Jason.
  9. King Cobra drag car

    Yes the restored car has silver headers and the grille surround. I also do not see the unique roll bar in these photos. Either way you choose to replicate the car Ray, original or restored it will be a great looking car.
  10. Thanks Bruce. To lower the truck: At the front I cut down the cross member mounts to raise the lower swing arms. Then removed material from the top of the spindle to bring the hub farther up into the wheel well. As the engine sits on top of the cross member I will have to make some adjustments to keep the engine low enough to allow the hood to close. At the rear I removed the shackles completely from the rear of the springs and deeply notched the frame rail to raise the front spring mounts. To get it any lower I would need to separate the molded together axle and springs and add lowering blocks. I'm choosing not to take that step as the axle is flimsy and I don't want to risk weakening it.

    I haven't seen a period photo of the car with silver/chrome headers and the grille surround - Ray, have you found any?
  12. AMT Go Kart

    Looking for a complete buildable standard go kart, not the streamliner version. Buy or trade. I know R&MCoMD has a resin copy of the streamliner version, looking for a plastic version of the standard kart.
