Ed,

You should put a parachute and wheelie bars on that thing!

Cool that your putting the CAM2 decals on it.

--Dave

I was actually looking at a junior dragster parachute but can't see spending $100 on something I wouldn't really use.Maybe if someone had just the pack,I'd stuff towels in it and run a rope underneath and tie it to the chassis. A dummy chute like some guys ran in Super Gas. '<img'>

Very cool, Ed. I'm already looking forward to seeing it at the FCR. Certainly does deserve a display.

You need this engine in it, puts out around 60+hp (out of 1 cylinder).



It will run around 6.90' or quicker at around 100+mph in the 1/8th mile with a car and driver weight package of 500+lbs

That puppy cost probably 5 times what I paid for this. Weight without driver was advertised at approx. 125#. To be truthful,I haven't even tried to fit my fat @ss in it yet. '<img'>

They also had Bud King and Blue Max EXPs but they were a bit smaller and made by a different company.In one of my old mags there is a shot of Goose and MT racing front engine style digger go carts. ':cool:'

Send me the chassi and I will blast and re powder coat it for you at no charge.
 I always liked those things.

Unfried,your a Bud Fan buy that and we'll match race. '<img'>
Beaver Bob will have us doing fire burnouts. ':p'  '<img'>
Never saw that one.It's cooler in that it has the injector hat. That's the one thing the Pepsi Challengers did not have.
Uh oh that add said it also had a Monza body.Gotta be a Jungle car. Gotta be !!  ':p'

FC fan1; That freakin Pepsi Challenger is the coolest thing.
I saw that MT front (Briggs)engine dragster last week hanging on the wall in a garage in North Jersey. Also a kiddie car powered by a chain saw engine.

One thing I have to change is the body mounting bolts.It has six of them and right now they are the typical nut and bolt.A real pain in the @ss to unfasten them all.I'm going to try a cotter pin approach.We have a sh*tload of them at work. I'll be like Johnny Cash, "One Piece At a Time",snek it out in my big lunch box. I can get any type of emery cloth and wire brush wheels,cleaner and especially those shop rags. '<img'>
You should see the brake.One skid plate against a wheel.Had a bad experience with one of them on a minibike when I was a kid.Don't work too good if the tire is wet.
