Past engine builder was developing a cheap dragster concept using a V-10 Chrysler engine. It could come from a Viper or truck.

Use the H.A.M.B. dragster rules as core.
Let them use automatics and EFI.
Have a list of accepted donor vehicles for the drivetrain.
Keep a reasonable e.t. limit. 10 flat for the quarter and 6 for the eight.

This will either end up as a pack of rat rod, steampunk, MadMax looking machines, or it will end up as any other cookie cutter high dollar class.

Where is a picture of the 750 pound aluminum Olds engine dragster? "Underdog"......

The little flyweight that ran upwards to 195 mph in the quarter and gave the big boys with their hemi's fits?

I found it!

Underdog", and to think at one time I had an Olds as well as a Buick 215" aluminum V-8's.

More fun than a bunch a monkeys!!
