Someone on the forum did the same thing by taking two heads from one of those adjustable shop squares, putting them both on the same ruler. The tires clamp square between the sliding handles. Hard to describe and I don't have my camera handy.
Here's a link to the thread I started too long ago for my 49 Merc ProMod. All of the chassis work is done with 1.6mm rod. I still need to finish this. I stalled on the project trying to over detail the engine. Watch out for that kind of stuff.
I've been out at Pacific Raceway quite a bit over the past two years, what did you run? Are you retired from work, racing or both? I'm retired from work and getting ready to field a GT super stocker this season. Getting the Mustang set has punched a big hole in my model building but I still have two projects on the bench.
My cat used to catch moles in the back yard and carry them into the front flower garden. She then dropped them and watched them dig out of sight. When they were gone, she attacked the hole searching for them. My other cat used to capture Garter snakes and carry them around in his mouth. Never harmed a one. Can't say the same for birds, though...
Firing order is a function of the cam. 302 Fords can have one of two firing orders depending on if they are HO or not. If you want to wire an engine accurately, determine what engine you want it to be by make, year and displacement. Look up the distributor rotation, cylinder numbering and firing order then work from there.
That was an Outlaw Radial race at an NHRA sanctioned track. NHRA requires wheelie bars on cars capable of lifting the wheels 12 inches or more, but tracks are free to use their own rules if they choose for non sanctioned events. They don't need to follow NHRA rules all the time. At the speed he had going when he went up the second time, wheelie bars wouldn't have helped anyway. He should have backed off and pulled the chute. That's why they call them Outlaws, I guess.
