Taller tires front and back is the quickest and probably easiest/cheapest.
How close are you to Rocky Mount ? Send me a pm

Happy New Year to you as well.
May this be the year of living in the straight lane not all over the place like a bad pass, as 2020 was.

As Jeff said things are slow on the boards lately. I personally would like to get to next year already. The last 13 months has really been a struggle after losing our 22 year old Son while serving this country as a Marine. He was also an important member of our race team and a large void is in our  daily lives.
Enough of my problems now back to yours.
I use a black press on hose (XRP) for my vacuum lines. It has a flex steel core that will not crush but is flexible.
We use it for all our fuel, Oil and vacuum hose needs. XRP push on hoses.
Let me know if that is what you need.

Bring some good cardboard and tape with you. Make a mockup while you are at the car. Make it the same size as the maximum size it could be. That way you will know what you have to work with.

What size is the space you have to put the tank in? How many gallons does it need to be?

I drive mine at the track. After the run I quick pack the chute into the seat hop back in on tip of the chute hit the starter and go get my slip and drive back to my pit.
Low 7  192mph injected alcohol, iron 462 FED.
I like the self reliance as generally it is just my wife and I and sometimes just me.
I have transported many Cen-Pen dragster kits for John.  We even had one (180") for a while. We sold it as we had to many projects at that time.
Good luck with your search

Ted is still doing things for smaller orders. He just wants some flexibility with the orders as he will do the smaller run stuff between the big orders.
He let me know today, which is great, as we have another engine to do zoomies on. I will get my info to him in the next few days. His pipes were spot on with what I sent him for measurements. Great person to deal with also.....

John I got mine here on the board. Awsome service.
I got the tubes bent to what I needed by Ted's Fabrication  (225 digger on this forum).

Matt Shaff's Engine Shop / Piston questions
« on: May 07, 2020, 06:39:44 PM »
I need to order pistons soon for my next engine.
The specs  solid cast aluminum Buick block no water jackets.
Heads flow 490 cfm. at our cam specs and rocker ratio.
Crank is a 3.750 stroke 7.0" rods
Bore is 4.500
Gasket range .040 to .100
6:71 to start and may move up to an 8:71 later.
Enderle injector and port nozzles on alky.
We are shooting for about 11.5 to 1 compression with the .040 gasket.
This is going in our Supercat FED.
Questions are;
1 how far down for the piston?
2 how far down should the top ring be?
3 what style top dished,  flat, ?
4 should the pistons be coated?

Let me know your thoughts folks.

There should be plenty as teams really aren't using any.
NHRA (big show) won't be racing until July or August so that will help supply issues.

Thanks for the info on the picture.
Keep having fun.
I'll update the 2 new engines being built for the Supercat soon.

That shot is funny you posted as I am in Maine but have known the guy in the GS shirt since the 80's. He is in NC.
His name is Alan. Where/when is the picture from?

My mag and power kill is on my small dash.
Clearly says flaming river kill switch.
I have only had one tech person (young kid) helping at tech say it was an issue.  He was overruled by the tech official.
I sit well behind the tires so it is easy to reach from anywhere at the rear of the car.
