If your video is already hosted somewhere, just supply the link (easiest option)

May need to make another one as the sound level over loaded the mic on my phone and its not as crisp as it sounds in person ,but it does give you an idea .
Some of the neihbors not keen on starting it in the driveway , and others are all for it !

Car getting closer to completion , got front end cut out and on this weekend !

WOW!

Niiiiice! :o :2thumbsup:

Can you post some better side view and rear 3/4 shots to get a better overall profile of the car?

Is that a full tube chassis with a fiberglass drag body like the one on Steve King's car?

How much power?

How much does it weigh?

What kind of 1/4 mile #'s are you expecting out of it?

You post it on www.youtube.com and then post the url link here. 

Looks like my Arrow frame.  I built it as a 4 link with a 9" using  a Spool, Strange 8 3/4" axles and housing ends (for the brakes).  18" OD of the frame rails.  That Arrow was a 9 sec street car when I ran it then the ex-wifey sold it in the divorce and the car has the streetable stuff stripped out.  With a Brodex engine and blown Alcohol it runs 7s now.  Quick 8 at Mission Raceway.  I expected him to run plastic windows and glass bumpers ... but it's all glass and steel.  All same chassis etc that I built.

You need to go fast with that chassis because it makes the car much more secure and safe than a slowerstreet suspensioned car.  It's gonna be fun.  You're expecting low 7s or 6 sec?

Thanks ,

 I will get some better pics as soon as it warms up again , its too long to get a good shot in the shop .

 The car is built around Promod double tube Chrome moly chassis , I have only seen pics of Steve Kings car but from what I can tell it looks like more of a stock body with mods , mine is stretched and streamlined and has a 16 inch longer wheel base than stock  .

Power wise should be 2400 hp with mild " street " tune and around 3000 Hp if we lean it out a bit .
race weight with driver should be 2200 lbs , I have scales but haven't put it on yet . Transmission is a Lenco with crowerglide clutch and Trick Titanium scatter shield ,  magnesium Dana 60 differential out back.
