Re: I needs me a sand rail
those are some big heavy engines if you want to build a rail! most rails have aircooled vw engines in them. do you just want to drag with it? if you want to play in the desert with it i think those engines will be waaaaay to heavy. check out the sand rail/dune buggy section here for some ideas. i have a chenowth frame myself. another problem with a large v-8 is if you want to build a typical sand rain they are rear or mid engine, you'll have to find a trans axle to hold that much torque, that's not easy or cheap.
