Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. 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.
