You forgot another thing. He barely turns any of them on! Thats what kills me! I'd LOVE to hear that corvette idle and maybe do one pass (even slow would be nice!)

Yea, but its not like running a weed eater enging. You have to do a lot of prep and then after you need to do a LOT of work to store it or the piston rings and cylinder walls will rust together from the nitro fuel. Its a handful to fix that situation. Then comes the next problem, VALUE. Breaking a rear end is gonna run $700, breaking the engine will cost $500-$4,000 damaging the body would cost hundreds and a total loss would be devistating. Maybe the rich could drive these things, but guys like me that have no business even owning them... definately cant afford to run them. It is fun to fire the engine up once in a while, but its something you can go without for years.

Here is a Cobra i have been working on for some time. Its finally getting to what i want it to be.

why not set them up for gas so the rings don't rust? is the cooling not up to the task? the walbro carbs can be set up to take only a negative pulse if set up right (spring on the fuel pump diaphragm, that's how the 4 stroke weed eaters work) but I don't know if it would pulse enough with a multi cylinder engine...just thinking out loud

The older V8s run on Nitro. Correct me if Im wrong but I think the newer ones run on gas.

If Im correct that is the car I borowed from Frank and entered into the Tri State Auto show in Denver one year. The car won second place in the replica car category if I remember correctly. I displayed the car on 184 scale jackstands with mirrors under the frame so the rear end was clearly visable.
Glad you ended up with the car.
