Little Update On My 6 Cylinder SDRA dragster
« on: May 10, 2014, 06:50:37 PM »

Thought I might post an update on the car as I have not been on the thread much this year. I have not been able to run the car since last Oct. Medical problems have kept me out of the seat for a while. All is looking good and mending well and hope to run the car at our June ANRA Nostalgia race in Bakersfield, CA.

Made some improvements to front end setup by adding some friction shocks and having the front tires skin cut to get a better roll out. The tire/wheel roll out was .155 & .125" out of round when we started and now the roll out on the tire/wheel are .015 & .018".  Should roll a lot smoother with very little wheel hop.

Pulled my 194 Small Chamber head and cleaned up the ports, installed 1.84 Int & 1.60 Ex valves and milled .060 off the head.

Built a pair of 3 into 1 collectors to replace the zooms, They are a little shorter than I would like but should work fine.

Glad to see you are back at it. Medical stuff is no fun. Glad you are on the mend. Headers look nice especially the nice long collector extensions.
SR Dragster, because old people need to have fun too!
