This part has my interest. Can you briefly explain what all makes up the car? Thatís an impressive weight if itís an iron bbc even with aluminum heads.

It is a full tube chassis car with very few is any stock corvette pieces in it. Lexon windows, tube chassis, lightweight body, 9 inch, powerglide, so forth and so on. Certified to run 7.50 or slower. It is a full out race car.

Some nice items in there. Iíve contemplated a lexan hatch. I donít know of a way to do lexan side windows without saying goodbye to ever having them go up or down again.

I was wondering about the C3 too. Will this car be slower than the C3? If so, what prompted the change? Goals?

I have to admit I'm curious about the body construction. Is it a C4 chassis? The transmission tunnel looks different. Plus...No side rails like a C4. That's why I wonder what frame is under it?

Since the hood/fenders are one-piece, where they grafted? Are the panels FROM a C4...CF...fiberglass?

For us drag-racing neophytes, how do you make a 516ci block? (In fact, I've never asked how any block over a 396 is acheived? If over 396, does that mean they're never a SBC? If so, then BBC?)

I thought this was supposed to be a joke....and I thought it was pretty funny.

I'm assuming no way a 36 would hold up in a [drag] race car. I've read 44's can handle 800-1000hp...so I thought it was possible....and a no-brainer.

It is a Ford nine inch with 4.29 gears. A dana 44 would self destruct on the first pass!
