The Strange Bird goes to Eagle Field, and breaks a crank.

I took the car to the Eagle Field Drags yesterday for its first trip down the strip.....

I was too busy to get any pics, but my buddy mike got a couple clips....one is the Birds first run, and second, is the unfortunate crank snout breaking last run.

Took it real easy off the start, but then had some fun with it. Very little traction at all....I need more weight in back. The Hemi next to me was a good match until I got too excited and bounced it off the rev limiter forgetting to shift into 3rd. The announcer called it a "lean misfire" hahaha. Good times. The crank snout broke in the second video....overtightend pulley tensioner by a crew member. BUMMER.

Ouch.........

40hp of AWESOME



27 T Modified on a 30 A chassis, banger powered.
My buddy Casey came and helped me bang this thing out in 3 days. He's a ruler. All the body blocks, floors, woodwork etc are by him. I did the rest. Probably the easiest thing I've ever put together, almost no fab work. The column drop and hood latches aren't done in the pics, but you get the idea....
