Re: Snowmobile Dragster
I know of quite a few, can't say as I know exactly where they ALL are, but I do know there are lots. I know this because I used to fab them, everything from bare chasis to turn key. Little race car fab shop in N.D. We had cars we sent to all parts of the globe. If you do not know or are not aware, the clutches are a bomb waiting to go off everytime you run that thing. It is in my opinion that if you do not currently have a gaurd made of 1/4 steel plate or equivalant SURROUNDING the drive cluth, GET ONE OR MAKE ONE NOW. I have personaly witnessed to many of them things exploding on the starting line at launch and also know of a kid who was severely injured by one down there in Fl. so for everyone's sake cover that thing. And 6.50's in the eigth is ok, but I know they are capable of 8's in the qaurter mile, so keep tuning :-P I personaly liked our motorcycle powered versions much better. But thats just my opinion as a builder.
Oh and BTW, better drop the prototype name, yours isn't the prototype and you did not come up with the idea, they were being built in 95/96.
OMG, I just checked out the pics on that site, ARE U GUYS NUTS? It's bad enough that those clutches explode like bombs but you guys have yours set up so that when it explodes it will send shrapnel to the sides instead of in line with the race track! Your gonna get some one killed! Hope you have a VERY VERY good attorney.
