Thumbs Up Marcus & Trevor's Driveway Built Drag Car! (Build Journal)

I'm not done with the six speed cookie monster.. that will still be running 9's at next years mfest.. but I felt it was time that I built something that directly competed with Chris(HPF)'s drag car.

So I bring you the new build thread for Marcus's gutted drag car.

Chris and I ran into each other every 15 minutes at MFest. But I think my favorite time was when it was me and a few of the ProEFI guys walking down the center of the casino directly towards Chris and his crew and we met directly in the center of the casino.. meeting face to face for the first time since the car pickup. Something straight out of a movie.. we met and were professional.. we later met again at the drag strip as my car was running, things got a little heated but all in all we worked it out and Chris has agreed to provide me with a block, rods and pistons. I truly appreciate it Chris, at this point in the game I realize there was little benefit for you to do this other than to help a fellow enthusiast out. I declined the free offer in trade for a bet.. and with a crowd of about 30 people surrounding us we shook on the following bet.

Chris will provide a block, rods and pistons for free, and if I beat him next year at mfest in an 'unlimited' class all out drag race.. anything goes match that will be that. If he beats me, I will fork out the dough and pay for the block, rods and pistons he provided me.

Trevor and I will be building this drag car in my driveway.. not in my garage.. not at my buddies shop.. not at Saads, or ProEFI.. but in my driveway... with my shitty craftsman tools and jack stands. Laugh now.. but I'll get it done.. trust me!

Saad and ProEFI will obviously be helping me select parts, tune the car and build the engine. But all the heavy lifting will be done by me.

I have a year to do it.

Start right......... now.
