Rear Engine Dragster

I sold my STW nova as rolling car and bought my first race car.  This dragster is known in finland name "rotta" -dragster (Rat dragster). I remember it in 80´s.  THere was slant six engine and it runs something 10-11sec ET.  RED has been before that in Sweden.



Here we are.  I have use same dragster engine which I had in my Nova, Antti kivinummi (Simunaglide) finnish race transmission specialist, made me short powerglide and he arranged me Mark Williams dragster driveshaft couplings etc.

All ready for lisencestarts (6pc) and my first Drag race competition.
