2001 Undercover Rear Engine Dragster

2001 Undercover rear egine dragster. This dragster has the current National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) chassis certification on it that does not expire until 2013. NHRA chassis certifications are good for 3 years. Everything else on the car that has SFI (safety) requirements are up to date with the exception of the seat belts. They expired this past April and will need to be replaced if someone wants to race it in a NHRA sanctioned drag race. Most all the tracks around here such as I-57 in Benton do not look at these requirements. The car itself is a 2001 Undercover slip joint dragster on a 230 wheelbase. It has a hardtail (non suspended) rear end. It has a Ford 9 inch aluminum differential that has 4.11 gear ratio on a spool. There are around 400 passes on the rear end since it was rebuilt using a new ring and pinion gear with all new bearings and axles. The transmission is a Powerglide 2 speed that has been heavily modified for racing. It has the very desirable 1:80 ratio straight cut, hardened planetary gearset, Kevlar clutch packs, and manual valve body with a transbrake. It has a custom built 9 torque convertor that was built to work with this engine combination. There are about 250 passes on the trans since it was overhauled. The engine is a 468 cubic inch Chevrolet big block on alcohol. It is a tall deck cast iron block with 4 bolt mains. It has a 4340 crankshaft. The 4340 is a metal hardness designation, which makes this a desirable crank for this application. It has steel H-beam rods and forged pop up pistons. The cam is a comp solid roller. I have the spec card which I will give to the buyer. The cylinder heads are brand new Brodix BB-3 RaceRite CNC aluminum heads with new valves and new springs which match the cam. I have the receipt showing I bought these heads this winter. I also installed new roller lifters, $500.00 reservoir style water pump and starter when I replaced the heads. The short block itself has approx 225 runs on it since being overhauled. The new heads have 9 passes on them at I-57 and I can show the timeslips. The carburetor is a heavily modified Holley 4150 that has been built by Jim Evans Racing in Rolla, Mo. The engine was also built by Jim at his shop at Rolla Competition Engines. The ignition is all MSD using a crank trigger distributer. It has Borla downswept dragster style stainless headers with cone style header mufflers. As far as the rest of the car, any repair needed was always done with the best parts available. I always kept up on any maintenance. The car is very competitive. It has a Biondo Mega 450 delay box in the dash and a Biondo LED dial in board. The car was repainted in 2009 230" wheelbase. Slip joint dragster. Chevrolet 468CID on alcohol pulling 775hp. Powerglide automatic tranmission. 9" rear end. 4.11 gears. NHRA certified until 2013. New Brodix cylinder heads. Engine professionally built bu Rolla Competition Engines.
