So my brother in law Lenny wanted to race. He had been to the sand drags for a couple years, and had to participate. We bought a $600 Bronco, and dragged it home. Spring of 2014 we brought it in the shop and stripped it. No interior, top, tailgate, doors, and bumpers. It had a 5.8L motor and an EAOD transmission. So we got some wheels and paddles and went to the track. It ran much slower then we had expected. In low range the trans wouldn't shift, in high range the motor wouldn't rev. 7 second passes were not going to be acceptable. By the end of the season we regrouped and found a big block Mustang on craigs list. Bought that for short money and removed the 460 and all the speed parts. Now we are assembling the parts in an effort to build a budget friendly bracket race truck for our Street / Middle Eliminator class. I hope to be able to keep updating this thread with progress this season.
someone go back and get a shit load of dimes
