Roundthirteen added a topic in NASCARSettle this for meI drove this car at the Rusty Wallace Racing Experiance at MIS last July. Is this some Frankenstien of a Monte Carlo and Taurus or is it a well loved 05 Taurus? I've been wanting to build a model of it but wanted to lock down the body first.

Roundthirteen added a topic in On The WorkbenchJust another Fox Body drag car.So after a 20 year hiatus I decided to build a couple models seeing they're cheaper than the new turbo I want for my real car.
It's the Revel 1990 LX drag car but I'm trying to put my own spin on it. This is my first time trying to scratch build a cage but I can't bring my self to just use the roll bar in the kit seeing in my mind a proper booster, fox body, should be well under 10 seconds in the quarter. I'm borrowing some pieces off a cheap pro street kit I picked up. Hopefully I don't get discouraged and throw it out
Cage started, lots of finangling will be needed. I want to do a funny car style cage but may have to settle for an 8:50+. I also cut channels for sub frame conectors, cut the front wheel wells out back to the shock towers (not pictured), and cut out the gas tank and spare tire well.
The kit comes with a 302 and 5-speed but my OCD wants a bigger engine and a trans a capable of 1000hp and low 8's so I'm going to try this 351 and automatic. I have a "mock up" motor plate on it.
Hopefully I can get this to work with a motor plate and the small under hood area. This will be a lot easier for exhaust but a pain to run a belt with. I have a single turbo which would be easier to mount but I'd have to figure the exhaust out.
I've always hated chrome plated parts. To me it's never looked right so I gave these items a bleach bath. Included- B&M shifter, breather tank, sheet metal intake, distributor, fire extinguisher, starer, valve covers, trans pan,
Hopefully this turns out. Give me tips, I need them.

Roundthirteen added a topic in Welcome! Introduce YourselfHello from MichgianHi, I'm Brian. I built a ton of models back when I was younger, mostly racing. I'm just getting back into it as I'm building Rusty Wallaces 1989 Winston Cup Champion Grand Prix as well as a 275x class, pro charged, Fox Body, Mustang. I also have a Sprint Cup Taurus, of Matt Kensith's that was the car I drove at the Rusty Wallace Race Experiance, at Michigan International Speedway. In real life I have a 2008 Subaru Legacy Spec B (2.5lt Turbo boxer) that I autocross and have ran a best of 13.2@103mph on the 1/4.
