The other day at my Club meeting, my club president Mark was giving me a hard time about tubbing everything I build. Of course I told him heck yeah I’ll tub anything. I don’ t care what it is. So the challenge was thrown out for me to bring a non tubbed car to the next meeting. So I told him I would do one better than that. I would build a non tubbed, non v-8 car.
So I am starting with an old MPC SVO mustang kit that I have had sitting around for awhile. I plan to build it stock suspension, small tired , 4 cyclinder, 2.3 liter turbo charged drag car. As you can see in the photos I have already completed the engine. It is set up with a set of dual weber carbs and a scratch built intake manifold and a scratch built exhaust manifold. It also has a big turbo that I purchased online from a place that does 3D printing.
So I hope that this will mess with their minds when I show up at the next meeting, especially Mark. As me and Mark are always harassing and teasing each other as we are very dear friends.
