Magnus Finnbjornsson from Iceland sent in these absolutely stunning pictures of the Slingshot dragster he built using pictures downloaded from FrontEngineDragsters.Org for inspiration.
Magnus built the chassis from mild steel. He used a shortened torsion bar from a Volkswagen, the steering box from a '66 Volvo, and a fuel tank made from a stainless steel accumulator. The car weighs 1760 lbs with Magnus at the wheel.
Magnus' digger sports 406 cubes of small-block Chevy power. Inside this mighty mouse hides a set of flat top pistons, and a solid flat-tappet cam. Up top, a Holley carb proudly perches atop an Edelbrock TR1X tunnel ram. A modified HEI lights off the mixture as collector headers dump the expended hydrocarbons overboard.
This striking Viking digger utilizes a Ford 9" with 5:43 gears to turn Mosier 33 spline axles attached to the uber-wide 32x16x15 slicks. A powerglide transmission puts the ponies to the pavement when Magnus slams the pedal to the metal.
