Nice for a dirty bird

Ugh, all that time and effort to make a car go really fast in a perfectly straight line over a very short distance...
 
2013-08-24 09:44:38 AM
1/8 mile?

What kind of driveline can eat that much torque???

How much air can pass through the manifold to absorb how much CFM in 4 seconds?

Enough to inflate 17 bouncy-castles.

Has to be an 1/8th.

Looked like real glass in the windows. Seems like that wouldn't be too safe.

449 cu.in. is not a small block.
 
2013-08-24 11:01:40 AM
So roughly a low-7-second 1/4 mile, give or take?

DAMN.

Why not? People invest time and effort into highly specialized tasks all the time. He chose a specific hobby and went with it. I don't suppose you have any hobbies besides trolling Fark.

AbiNormal: 449 cu.in. is not a small block.


While 449 cubes is not small in terms of displacement, the external size of the engine is what determines the designation of small or big. In this case, I have no doubt the engine is a small block. Here is a  link, you can buy large displacement small blocks off the shelf nowadays. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mll-ps4540ctc

How much does a set up like this generally cost?

Hollie Maea: How much does a set up like this generally cost?


My neighbor runs a street/strip drag car.

The upper intake manifold costs 20k alone.

Cylinder heads are like 15k each.

Or you can get a 1750hp "crate motor" from someone like Shafiiroff for 27,500

I was wondering about that. Doesn't make a lick of sense. But the windshield and more importantly the side windows really, really look like standard automotive glass.

It would be fun to see if you could make as fast of an electric dragster for the same budget.

I'm no expert, but my guess is: Lenco 4 speed, Ford 9 inch and 2.5-4.5 cfm
 
2013-08-24 12:24:59 PM
2.5-4.5k cfm

The one thing I dig about that car, those turbo intakes blend in with the front grill.  Other than that rear spoiler, parachute, and slicks, that thing almost looks stock.
 
2013-08-24 02:14:19 PM
Car go fast! Too fast and too furious! Wow.

When your car's intake is susceptible to FOD, you have gone too far...

I know, that's awesome.  I might have to do that

Looking at the scratch/mar pattern on the driver's side window at about 1:50, it seems more like polycarb or something similar.

thats got to be one hell of an adrenaline rush when you hit the pedal

Agreed...that thing should be running moonshine through the hills of Tennessee.

Good call, clever farker. How's that working out for you?

1/8 of a mile, that track is the Texas Raceway in Kennedale, Tx.

Don't see too many setups like that in kennedale.

Would almost have to be.  I can't imagine a track with any sort of safety inspections allowing a car that fast run stock glass.

/CSB cousin showed up SIR (now Pacific Raceways) in a Ford Lightning that he had put a few bucks into, broke into the thirteens and they told him to go home and don't come back unless he put a shaitton more safety equipment into it.

Since Max also drives a Ford Falcon - I'd say well played :)

Yes, but can it do the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs?
