Well after some work and newer parts we returned to run the car again.
wind kept us from 1/4 mile racing
So we ran 1/8 mile

4:74@155 MPH.
So we made some improvements from last time 5:01@146

engine is happier now to get clutch to match engine.

Looks Good!!
The front wing helps.
Driving a Front Engine Dragster builds character and keeps you awake for a 1/4 mile at a time.
