NSRA Hot Rod Drags 2022

Recorded for posterity; our first six-second run, that we have been striving towards, for so long

2012 is coming to a close, we don’t have much of a racing season to reflect on but we have a lot to look forward to.

With 89 days until the season open at Santa Pod, The Festival Power, the chassis is back from powder coating and the engine is slowly going back in. The clutch is in, as is the the gearbox. Now to see to everything else!

At this time we’re aiming for at least The Festival of Power and Dragstalgia.

Just a short update today, to keep people in the loop that we are still here and we are still fighting a comeback!

Update April 22nd 2012

We’re at the stage now where there’s little to show for the hours that we continue to put in towards our return to the track.

  • The motor, flywheel/clutch, gearbox and rear end are ready to runĀ (including the clutch and throttle pedals, along with their respective linkages)
  • The braking system has been fitted.

Current projects include

  • Fabrication of the fuel tank and the seat
  • Body paneling
  • Body repairs
  • Installation of the fire extinguisher system
