    Can you lower the motor a touch to fit it?

    Air cleaner can just be cut off and re routed

    Am I the only one that started singing when I read the title?

    Is it just me or are the wrinkle walls the wrong way around

    You could to it with a solid axle using the front housing from a 4wd and modding it so the steering hubs affect the camber insted of the toe.

    Paying $35 to get a book to be 100% certain your car will meet the spec is a small price when building a 1:1 car.

    The Chevy belair 409 kit has the 409 in it. The only external difference on all the W motors is the dipstick location and inlet manifolds.

    You got 58% (28 right out of 48). The average score is 73%.

    Not bad for a 19 year old

    Well to be honest i did have a 1/24 John force funny car sitting on my bench aswell as the ANDRA rule book while i built it. Once you get started you can breaze through it.

    Well today i got bored so i created this

    Its an Alteres drag chassis that i built to ANDRA specs, Its not completly finished and im not sure what motor or drivetrain will go in but i just wanted to prove to myself that i could build a tube chassis from scratch.

    It took me around 3-4 hours and im already looking forward to my next chassis.

    To make it accurate just get a copy of your local drag racing spec.

    I have complete rules for australia and it includes the tubing type size and desgin requirements.

    This car is just awsome. It looks like a proper retro for a original car.

    Id recommend you use all the camaro driveline just to keep the retro feel, If not maybe the LS9 from a new ZR1 corvette kit for some extra punch.
    After all its a concept their all about grabing attention with new idea while still being relatable to a normal road car.
