  • RAPID FIRE redo...

    The only parts that exist from the original RAPID FIRE are the heart and soul of the car, and a few misc. mounting brackets. Major salt corrosion ended the life of that frame after inspection following Speedweek 2017. So here are a few pictures of the old set up not seen before and some of the new build.

            neat-o. the side shots had me thinking it was a V8 in that tiny body...

            I can remeber a rag from back in the early 80's, Car Craft or maybe HRM....featured 4 or 5 little motors, 4 cyl and V6's that were hopped up with blowers and all sorts of speed parts from the era....I never see anything like that around here and thought it would be cool to build something with a roots blown 4 popper.

              Love it! Any details and/or pictures of the transaxle?
              Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

                Come to a LSR meet. You'll see any strange combo of parts you can dream up - that's what we DO!

                  No transaxle is this little beast, it wouldn't hold up. Power glide with a quick change.

                    Driveshaft must be very short unless direct powerglide to quick change coupling?
