I went through all my cars last night looking for a hauler. No luck. Going to have to order one once I see what's allowed and whats not.

Okay, I am in way over my head. I tried making a hauler out of two perfectly good haulers.  Bad mistake. I cut the base of the HH and decided to JB Weld a couple of pieces of metal in to extend the frame. I cut the pieces of metal off of the frame of a paint roller.


Next I will attempt to fit the back end of the piece I cut to the other end of these pieces of metal and then I will try and stick it under this.


Yeah, I don't think it will work either but it was a fun way to kill 30 minutes this evening. The weird thing is when I opened the Hiway Hauler, it had 3 of the same wheels and one of them was completely different. Probably could have sold it for a couple of bucks to a collector that is into mistakes. 


  • Look for a casting called back slider....most of mine started as this... — Traction-Event

That Fast Bed Hauler looks like just the ticket. Looks like it already has FTEs on it also.


  • nope, chrome wheels but plastic base makes for an easy wheel swap... — model40fan

I think height is the hard issue to overcome on Dragtracks smittys dead on 1.30in is safe. I'm concerned anything higher may contact the finish line. So....

If you guys want I'll update the rules with all dimensions tomorrow and see who wants in on this. And a date...maybe after the before and after series wraps up...?

40th class reunion, family reunion and our street rod club's annual event are on the 16th... pencil me in any other weekend, the one that fits the series best !

 was I too quick?  as I built "Bandit Towing"  to best handle the "Burnout Track II" with a low center of gravity, I don't see the BURNOUT disclaimer in the new rules...? ... edited

Smitty,

What rule or lack thereof are you referencing with my hauler pic and your "Bandit Towing" car disclaimer?


  • 1st rules said burnout track, they need low C G. — model40fan
  • if at the end of the track - could be a factor! — Milton-Fox
  • Yes I mentioned it in the original post, not yet knowing who might host. No infraction...build on. — Traction-Event
  • thought it was fishtail hosting, begining or end the burnouts get your attention. — model40fan

Still need to convince Fishtail...

 

I picked up a prize for this series today...in first post.

and I started working in the shop today...sometines the cars make themselves...here is a mock up of my plan.

sitting at 66g in pieces, Fire Eater chassis and cab, Fast Bed Hauler bed, and an all metal Miata...wish the wheelbase was longer...but that can be adjusted.
