    Default So We Bought a Dragstar

    I hope these Rogers hulls work well. Drug this one home from Arkansas today. Snatched the engine out immediately. Will pull a valve cover off tomorrow. What heads it has will determine if we build a 451 Chrysler to sit back in or a 540 BBC. We have plenty of pieces for each lying around. Will have to add it up either way and see which way it goes. Would definately have to buy more parts and pieces for the BBC.

    Gonna let Info Jr. race it. Best we could do on a tight $$ budget.

    Already did thanks. He hooked me up with Roger Weiman. I called him and he gave me the basic hardware setup. What a great head start.

    LOL he wants to race the Cougar. The Cougar is so heavy it takes a ton of HP to make it go. It's either marginally fast or way too fast. Not much in between.

    That's the KEY To setting up that boat. A little different than any normal jet boat.

    Let us know if you need any other help, Or when you wanna step up to a 300# hull, whatever color Gel you want!!

    Info we have a freind who succesfully campained one of these for several years , spoke to him recently because another friend bought one as well . He (Clint) is more than willing to Chat about his experience and the diffent set ups if your so inclined. Nice "find" I would have bought it myself if it had been closer Good luck to you and your son Tom
