Nice work, love the Funky workshop, some good looking artworks around.

Don't particularly like the idea on sitting on a diff centre over 200mph.

I think you need bigger balls to drive one of these as opposed to the new style rear engined rail.

Wonderful work, thanks for all the pics, Silvio...

Coincidentally, I just got the current issue (#69) of The Rodder's Journal, and there's an article on Ron Covell, the article spends a lot of time covering his early FE dragster body builds.

speaking of Dzus fasteners one thing for future projects, try to minimize the dzus fasteners behind rear tires. That way you do not have to remove tires to pull body panels. Ask me how I know
