Drive by radar? How the h--- do you see where your going?
Look out the front. It only needs to go straight.
And it doesn't look like the pipes really block any viewing, given they're at the pillars, that you can't see through anyway, and you don't really have to worry so much about it when the car is only going through pits or down the 1/4 mile. I am a little surprised that the track would let him run it with that configuration though, or why he didn't just throw a set of zoomies on it.
Originally posted by Patrick: Yeah, that's the weirdest looking scoop I've ever seen. Normally you'd want the front opening as large as possible.
Can't really tell what the diameter of the opening is, from the photo, but it probably is more than enough to fill the needs of the engine. And most scoops have an opening that isn't as large as the base of the scoop. Nothing particularly abnormal about the air flow design of this one. It meets the needs and is slightly hilarious, looking like an extinguisher bottle.
That scoop should also make tons of turbulence going into the carb by the way its placed too. Why would you not just put fenderwell headers in that ? I got them in a 426 Hemi in a 63 Valiant Signet unibody.
Nice exhaust placement! No need to cut the trunk in this situation, bolt it to the roof!
Where did you get this photo? This was taken at rock falls raceway in Wisconsin. I took some photos myself just a month or so ago - looks like he changed his scoop recently and ditched the old predator carb. I talked to the owners friend & he told me it was a stroked chrysler motor. It was running bad that day (sputtering upon takeoff) and ran 15's if I recall. The cage, rear end and 4 link all actually look like a top notch install - nice welds etc. I think it has potential to hit 10's if he gets it running right.
