'69 Brazilian Dodge Dart back halved chassis

#1 Post by Jeff 4100 » Fri Feb 28, 2014 6:14 am

Hello All,

I was away from the forum so much time...and during this time we built a back halved chassis in a '69 Dodge Dart.
As this is an american car I want to share the pics with you guys!!!

Once more, a lot of Dave Morgan Seminar tips and advices were used during the construction. :thumb:

This car will run with a 408CID +250hp NOS, 15x18,5 MT tires, 15x15" Weld Racing Pro Star Wheels, 4 speed manual trans, ford 9" in 3300pounds...I've no idea how ET it will run...

But our job is chassis building...LOL...

If you don't mind Jeff, show us some of the other projects you're building as well as keep us informed on the drag racing scene in Brazil.

Nice work Jeff.

With the right trans and clutch combo it should go high 8's.

With the wrong trans/clutch.... will be picking up pieces off the track :oops:

Sure!!!!

Here we go with a '80 Dodge Polara...back halved chassis, 4 Link, Ford 9"...the engine will be an SRT-4 2.6 liters built by Darrell Cox Racing from Michigan...turbo, 4-speed manual trans...2200lbs with 800HP

Now the car has a wing and a wheelie bar is planned to be built.

The goal is to run in low 8 seconds...

This is a '92 Chevy Opala Diplomata to run at the RWD Turbo class (275 Drag Dot Radial Tires)!

We built a 3/4 back halved chassis with Ford 9", Ladder Bar (rulebook requirement), Moser spool and 35 splines axles, inline six 250CID filled with HardBlok and a lot of Turbo pressure + nitromethane....to get 1000HP for its 2700 pounds...4 speed trans...

We took care of the chassis building and all the car painting with a partner to get back the original look...I loved this car!!!!

We have cars but not tracks...unfortunately....

The track below was just the unique official track here...but anyone knows why they closed it this year... :attack:

Then, we are fighting to run in 1/8 mile tracks down here...horrible...
