Default Looking to Join in 2011

I am going to be building my first Stock Eliminator car this winter and look to run in your Series next year.

I'm really exited to get back into Drag Racing. It's been since 2005 that I have made a pass down the track.

when you get it to the track come say hello. never a shortage of someone to talk to, or hear a story from at a Can Am race

I currently looking to run DF/S with either a Neon or a an 83 Charger.

I should be making my decision soon so I can get the engine to the machine shop.

It has been five years since I last made a pass. That was in the Big Block Aspen I used to run before I sold it. Time to get back to it..

Yikes, do we allow front wheel drive stock in Can Am? You know, you can rear wheel conversion those cars and run crate motor

WHAT? The rules just say legal stock or Super Stock cars... It doesn't say you have to run a certain speed.

You obviously have more money than I do.

So your telling me its cheaper to build a neon that will run the index and stay together for 2 qualifiers and 5-6 rounds of racing for 10 races than to build a 70's duster with a 300hp magnum crate engine? If your starting from scratch I would think a neon would be way more expensive to bulletproof than a duster/dart sport/ect. Stock eliminator with a crate engine is as cheap as it gets. The engine can come right out of a van and change the cam, valvetrain and intake manifold and it will run the index no problem because a dodge for some reason has a way conservative HP rating. Just my 2 cents.

I can answer your question a few ways.

I have a Neon, I do not have a Duster ( so I would have to buy one, and they are not cheap or plentiful)

To run the Duster I would also need:

Caltrac Bars, 8 3/4 Axle, a sure-grip unit, gears and a new driveshaft, Two headers insitead of one for the neon, 4 pistons instead of 8 in the crate motor, and an expensive converter and tranny in the Duster. Running low 15's will not require the same level of expensive parts as a 11 second crate motor car.

The Neon just needs to run the index, not set the record. So a good rebuild, headers and side gears will get it done and of course a set of slicks..

I'm not looking to build a $6000+ dollar race car here. I just want a legal car that can run the National Event at Grand Bend and so I can check off one on my bucket list.

Winning Indy in 1997 brings back a lot of memories and I want to do that again.
