Date 10/09/16  Been a while since the last update  so here is a brief summery of the last few years

20012/ 2013 season run the car with the old flathead  motor using small % of nitro with varying results

For the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons we installed the Thompson and Hogan  sb chev  which Pete and Garth kindly loaned to us till we finished our new flathead engine  best time on 20% nitro was 7.7  @180 mph

In December 2015 we lost almost everything in a shed fire including our flathead race motors. We have repaired the fire damage to the dragster (which was mostly from the fire wall back) and  purchased the Thompson and Hogan sb Chev  The Nitro content will be stepped up to 60%  First race will be The Central Nationals at Masterton Motorplex december 10 & 11

The Dragster is is now finished and assembled for the final time less engine. We are currently working on the engine making cylinder heads and oil pan. The short block needs one more trial fit of all parts then will be ready for final wash and final assembly. All going well we will be racing this season (2011 / 2012).
