Wait till the motor is in it, I went a bit overboard on the chrome for it also.

Merry Christmas everyone !!

I've seen a lot of cars with the chrome dash, I dont think it'll shine to much, if it does I have a pitch black visor on my helmet.

It'll be home in a week.. wired in the next month..motor will be back around march, it'll be in shortly after.

Wait till the motor comes home, alt bracket and pulleys, fuel pump bracket an pulleys, valve covers, scoop tray, scoop tray mount, dial board, dial board mount, timing cover are all chrome.

The intake is going to be nitro plates in a chrome look. The tranny case is on its way to dedenbear for re-tag, and then either to the chromer or powdercoater.

This is my best car by far and I've had a few nice ones. Heck should be one of the best around !

Thanks !!!

Brian its going to have a big block chevy 548ci, conventional headed, 14.5:1 comp, dart 355's, apd alky dominator. The same motor in my last car with 10:1 comp ( :shock: ) ran 7.7's/4.9's. This car is 100lbs lighter, and the motor got a some upgrades, dyno will tell me more here in the next 2 months, hoping for high 7.4's but will settle for 7.5's.
Oh and this one has a 300 shot nitrous kit on it also :D I'd like to see 7.0's on the spray. Which would be ver impressive for this size motor and conventional heads I think.

Again thanks !! The paint is nearly done, the wiring job is 1/2 done. I will have pictures soon !!

01-09-2007, 04:58 PM
No need to Number them, everything is a different color wire, such as nitrous selnoids is all brown, fuel pump stuff is all pea green, and so on. They are either solid color, or have some kind of stripe on them. Other then grounds and power.

I do have a drawing of all wires to where it goes though. I will have that in the trailer for easy problem solving if something ever did happen.

I was going to buy a heatshrink label deal but they are kind of pricey. :P

Ok, first off, how does the rear suspension work vs. the single shock swing style? Does it control shake better??? better 60ft's? And, after looking at your wiring job, if it was mine, I would have tripped over the frame from being tangled in the wires from the glow of all the bling, bling :D and hit my head, broke both legs and would have had to watch my buddy drive it this year :oops:

Bitchin, this is all I can say to your buildup on this digger, the paint on the frame is unparelled, and the body will match with the clearcote I am sure. Man, would a 632cuin do you justice with this awesome piece, no punn on your currently bullet mind you, but this just pants for cubic inch man, and change that single bottle rack to a twin rack, 6's in no time :D

Very nice job again, and, do you do wiring on slow cars :) but mine is kind of cool looking, just a lot slower :( I would like to talk to you some time about your project, really about your wiring, it is just great work also and it makes YOU appreciate it mayyyy more too :D
Funny, I won at Martin in 2004 with my old colored Elky, (white pearl) but now with the new Corvette Yellow, I may have to hit the 131 facility again in 07 :D wanna race???? you can have a burger, fries and pop before you leave after me :lol: :lol:

Seriously, very nice work hammertime and what class will you run? and did you hear about the new NHRA diaper rule for 08??? yep, everybody running 9.99 and faster gets to wear depends around their bullet, blows if you ask me :x but then again, I need to go 9's first huh??? :P
Shoot me your # sometime, I would love to yap with ya about your ride. Good luck this year.

Sincerely
Elkymann

ps, my elky finally made the chevelle show off section in the forums, go check it ok when time permits....

The dual shock is what you'd normally see on most dragster, I personally am not a fan of a single shock for a few reason, main reason is when your on and off the throttle at the big end it will rock back and forth, where the duals will not do that. As for the 632" I looked at one, but for what I do bracket race 90% of the time, and the other 10 is either top dragster or quick 8, the motor I have with the spray I have will still run very low 7's, possibly into high 6's.

The wiring job is really my first ever one, I figured out a few things I will do different on the next car, but thats something everyone does when doing their first car. It has turned out very well for a first timer. I am glad you like it !
Where do you race at most the time ?
my email is [email protected] email me sometime

Looking good!!!

Why not go with a digital box??? The programable type?? I have one and love it!!

hammertime
01-16-2007, 10:33 AM
I am always looking towards the future :lol: Likely at the end of the season this car will be sold and another will be on the way, I've got to many lookers and wanters of it already not to get rid of it. Normally every 2 years a new one is in the trailer, dragsters are easy to lose money on every 2 years is a good safe deal to sell them at.

SG I had a digital for it at one point, They do tune a lot of things, but several people I race with dislike them for a few reasons, you have to have the programmer or a computer to hook into, and they seem so go bad quicker then they should. I've always normally ran 6al stuff and its worked fine, but figured with the nitrous i'd better jump up for a bit better spark.

01-16-2007, 01:22 PM
Now that really makes sense, and I didn't think a digger at the big end would move around that much... :shock: so I can see why you use two vs. one, thanks, just curious. and yeah, you should do well with the 500+ inch engine and spray. 8)

I try to tour with the NMCA/FSC guys and they hit Martin in 2004, but not lately and I won the brkt II their, hotter than hell too, but I won and the track was much better than years ago, although I miss the big events that used to show their, POP ROD Nationals, and so on. But, i usually race at Milan, Dragway, but will hit more tracks and I love Norwalk, one of the best parts braking tracks around in my book, although again, Chitown will bust a part or two also at night :lol: my current schedule is Columbus, in June 1-3, then on to Rt 66 in Chicago, for the largest street car gathering in the United States, so far!!! :D , plus, it is my wedding anniversary also their :D and that is in July, 19-22, then on to Milan in my back yard, then off to Memphis maybe, depending on finances and time off. Other than that, I may race at some tracks in Ohio, and maybe Ind., I used to race in Manistee, or Kaleva, Northern Michigan Dragway, but that was years ago, only 1000 ft their to race on also. But I would love to hit 131 again for sure. Ok, enough coffee for me today, I will send you a mail soon, and again, very nice work hammer, can't wait to see it in full trim, and I think a driveway burnout is in the makings, don't you think guys???? :D :D

01-30-2007, 04:07 PM
Great looking job and to be your first one too, I am impressed..There is one point I will ask about though..Where your wiring goes into the frame it is making a pretty good bend and of course rubbing againt the metal....Is the metal real smooth and even so that looks like a spot that will get vibration and could cause a problem in my mind, so please fill me in...Again though, great looking job...

hammertime
01-30-2007, 04:27 PM
thanks guys,
There is circuit breakers on all the switches and everything is switched so no need for fuses.

Where it goes into the frame is pretty smooth it wont rub through the coating. I ran my last car for 2 years this sameway and never had an issue, it just makes for a better/cleaner look then outside the chassis.

hey guys thanks !!
It is 235 long, I will know more on very close #'s in a few weeks the motor is being put together right now off to the dyno soon, looking to make 950hp +/- 15 with a 548, which should put this car is the low 7.50 range if not high 7.4 range, but I will not get my hopes up untill I see some dyno #'s. I also have a 50 to 300hp NX plate system on it, with a 150 jet in it right now for top end driving, but do plan to run it on the spray for a few races, that should make it run low 7.2's for 4 seconds of spray.

Thanks again for the comments !!

Got it on the scales yesterday

1890lb with me in it and everything on it.
1710lb without me
1687 without the full nitrous bottle on it.
front half of the car was 440lbs 25.7% of the weight
back half of car was 1270lbs 74.3% of the weight
front left was 224
front right was 217
left rear was 628
right rear 641

This includes everything but a few fittings for the vacuum pump. Complete NX system, air compressor, horn,12v fan, napa gel battery, all chrome, body panels, paint, everything you can think of is on the car. Fuel cell 3/4 full also.

Not to bad for everything on there I thought, @ 960hp it still should run 4.7's

mph-169.83


Now onto the problems. I thought it was driving through the convertor all day and I thought the car was not making any power through the middle.
I also thought I could hear what seemed to be a header gasket leaking making what sounded to be a miss. After further inspection after I got it home the # 2 plug was not firing at all causing the miss I was hearing.. I took my convertor out and put my spare in, the sprag is likely out of the one that was in there.

I put new plugs, wires, cap, rotor and coil on along with the conv change.
New conv is a 5800 stall and the old one was 6200. Both are 9" convs.
I also have another spare to try if I feel this is no better, its a TSI super 8 9" spragless 6000 stall. I feel the power I was losing was from the spark plug bug no way to tell untill I go to the track. This weekend was a freeze out, 25 and snow here. Hopefully next weekend I can get it back out and find out if what I changed helps.

Plus side, the car drives awesome, my lights were very good and consistent. If you notice the 60ft's on the first 2 passes on brand new tires on a cold cold track were identical, these were the only 2 passes I wasnt changing anything.

David,
The Car [email protected]@KS Great!I would be Happy if Mine ends up [email protected]@king half as Nice as Yours?The Only thing that is out of Place,is your Motor!LOL.
My Altered is on the Jig and should be Finished,as far as the Chassis in another week or so?Just added 16"to the W/B.It will be 141"when it comes off the Jig.
I'm also here in Mi.but alot farther North,Fountain.
I have a somewhat similiar Combo 520BBC Alky Injected,but do NOT want to Spray mine?
I'm hoping that the #'s fall in the 7.60's 1/4 and 4.90's 1/8?All New Combo this Season for me,so TIME will tell?But,with the FOOT and Half on Snow that we have,it will be awhile?
I'm headed for S.C.next week to pick up my New Trailer.So,a few Warm Days are in the Future?Maybe hit N.Wilksburo for the Classic Gassers on Saturday?
Hopefully,we will see you at the Races?Looks like my Local Track has went IHRA.I assume you run at Martin?

Hey hammer,

Elkyman here again and it's been awhile since the new info on your digger, very very nice setup and the numbers are looking real good so far. Shouldn't this engine make a few more ponies though for the cubes???? Seems like it would be in the 1000hp+ range real easy on motor alone, but then again, I don't know your cam specs either..... :o

Got my elky running finally and so far 10:[email protected] 134mph and the rear suspension is eating up the 9 sec. et as it spins a little off the line, more work is done to the rear susp. and now I have a elect. problem, hence this e-mail to you.

I need some help and info on what you used in your wiring setup and names and part #'s if possible and where you got your spools of wire from, heat shrink and connectors and eyelets and so on, my elky is getting a elect. makeover this winter as I keep running into elec. problems and it is making me sick of this pig, so before I sell it to the scrap yard, I want to run 9's with it first :) I contacted Wires & Pliers and Michael helped me a bunch so far, but he is expensive but he does some of the best wiring around this state on drag cars, your 2nd to him :D nice wiring also by you, you did a reat job of it all. So when you get this and read it, can you reply to [email protected] for me? Then we can go from there. Thanks and keep up the great work, ps, don't sell it, make it work for YOU :D Thanks hammertime.

Hey Brian,

No excuse dude, I have been working on my hotrod so much and have been having problems like everybody else. I made it on the PINKS show in Detroit, but lost 1st round, went to the runner up spot in some brackets at Norwalk, and saw a deer in headlights when the green came on, I just sat there :evil: and I just didn't have enough to cover a .439 light :( but it was the best door to door racing I have ever done, I played the catcher and caught them all and well, we know how to win put it that way :D
Then off to Chicago for the Superbowl of Street car drag racing and I went 3 rounds there, and up in smoke in the 3rd run off the line. Then some testing at Milan Dragway here in the Detroit area and it went 10:07 off the trailer after some rear suspension work, and up in smoke again, then, 10:02 on the third pass :D :D so, I am on the edge of 9's if I can just get this elky to hook just a little bit more, and I have two plans to make it happen in Norwalk this weekend at the Inaugural All Chevy drags for 3 days, testing on Fri. and this is MY day, so it should hit 9's maybe, and I have all my paper work filled out and ready for the license, and the doctor info also. But I am going bracket racing there on Sat. & Sund and try to take some cash home so I can make it to Memphis in Oct. for my NMCA series finals, I could get top ten if I win one of these events :lol: More racing to come also, so this is why I have been invisiable for a while.

Did you hear that Michael Browne from Wires & Pliers wiring in Brighton, Mi. was killed on Sat. afternoon going to Milan Dragway???? this really sucks as he was just about the best wiring guy on the Eastern seaboard, he did Billy Gliddens stang, many Pro mod cars, IHRA pro stock cars, and many , many more cars, he loved racing but loved wiring cars more and took a hugh passion to it. Go to www.wiresandpliers.com and check out some of his work if the site is still active. I was just about to get my elky done over the winter and we were just getting things setup to get ready, and I was supposed to go see him this week :x people in the Detroit area really needed this guy, he just knew it all, all of it!!!!!!! I now have to find someone 2nd in command to do my wiring, I am so bummed out, one of the greatest guys you could ever meet, check out also www.NMCADIGITAL.com and read some posts, also, www.yellowbullet.com also, many people loved him and needed his knowledge, and he helped many for free and had no life insurance!!! :(

Anyway, sorry about that, he will be surely missed by thousands of people. So, my little 505 bbc is trying to hit 9's in a 3360# elky and ballast is next, wish me luck :D

Hey Bjuice,

Well, the Norwalk experience was NOT like the normal Experience Norwalk provides, :( lots of rain and I broke my throttle linkage from the floor to my foot, I twisted the 35 plus year old lever to the max and when going for max et, I really have stong legs from bodybuilding years ago, and it shows still to this day :D so, after not getting full throttle, rolling thru the beams on the first race in the first round got me no good data to work with, got it welded by a local guy, but it broke again, I told him how to weld it and it held for the 2nd race, but still no full throttle, and I had no dial for the weekend at all to work with, so I thru a 10:50 on the lexan and went for it, I raced a 7.92 Camaro, chassis car of course, and I left wheels up but still not full throttle, went all the way down, looked for him at the 3/4 mark until the finish line and nothing, so I dumped at the line, crossed the line and almost hit the mph line and there he was and he got the win light :? I waited for him at the finish line :) and when I got the et slip, oooopppsssss 8) I went a 10:38 :shock: funny though, when I went to shake his hand a chat about it, he said, "man I didn't mean to dick you at the line", he doubled bulbed me right away, and it didn't even bother me knowing I had my own problems, so I just beamed in and nailed the throttle and it came up but not quite full again, and I caught a better light than him, .113 to his .234, but he was no where to be found at the finish. Oh'well, that's racing, and I fixed the pedal today to get max throttle and made a throttle stop on the floor as to not brake the linkage again. I also added some weight to the rear of the camino to aid in traction as I seem to spin about 2-4 times before I get anywhere and can still run 10"0's :D so look out when I get traction, and I have all my NHRA paper ready for the track licensing routine when needed. So, that is almost two weekend in a row that got rained out, and Labor day may provide some cash for me if I can keep the pedal in one piece.! :)

And as far as the do'er's, hell, why build a drag car and not beat the heck out of it? if you plan and build it right, it will last right? capeesh...
Yeah, big bummer with Michale B. I can't get this guy out of my mind and I am married even :shock: so don't tell my wife ok? :D I sometimes wonder what plan god has for people, take the good ones and leave the rottin one's to live forever, I just don't get it some days :shock: :shock: he will be missed by many people, godspeed Michael, may we meet in the white strip of heaven some day, nuff said.

So, Norwalk has a $10,000. race this weekend and some of the best racers in the country go to this race, so I am not sure if I want to loose $100. entry in the first round for all three days, but I may do it, need to see what the wife wants to do, she will want to go, but weather will dictate this weekend.

Does hammertime ever read this forum anymore??? I need some wiring done and I need some of the parts he used in his digger for my elky when I re-wire it(with Michale's help) in spirit, and I need to know where he baught his parts and wire from. Cna you let me know if you can get a hold of him and have him send me a mail????? I am at ;
[email protected], or on here from time to time,(when I have time) :D

What's up with your hot rod life Brian, got any projects going on, or racing anything lately????,, your turn :D

Hey Brian,

Well, I found out what the elky wants per the setup I have in it now, and due to the small tire configuration(29 x 11 x 15) it needs lower rpm's on the launch, all I can say. I was trying to get a big tire launch with a small tire and looked like a fuel car, it even shook and spun the tires :shock: I felt like a fuel driver 8) but stunck for racing the brackets completely.

So, plan is to leave lower until I can get another gearset in the rear end as I am out of tire space and Hoosier does not make a 30 x 11 wide slick, so I will have to tame it down for the remainder of the year. I went to a race at Stanton, Mich. last weekend during the holiday and did lousy, except on the final 1st rnd, I dialed a 10:30 with out having two back to back passes to dial from that were close to et's, and well we were heads up, the stang got out first and I ran him down and he dumped right at the strip and I ran her thru and went a 10:299 on a 10:30 dial, so If I had of dumped also with him, I may have won the round, but good raceing nonetheless. More later after I hit another event. I finally got the gloves, pants and the chassis certified to run 9's, now it just needs to run 9's so I can get the runs completed. Keep your fingers crossed. :)

Hey Brian,

Well, after a 10:02 off the trailer on Fri. this past weekend in Kalamazoo, Mi. at US 131/Evan Knoll Motorsports park, in 56 degrees of temp, and 1200ft DA and 48% hum. the elky went 9:95 @ 135, then it went 9:93, and finally on the redlight 1st round a 9:92 at 134 so it is in the 9's, but not legally :shock: but the track owner ok'd that I could run the 9's if I hit the # so it was a good weekend even though I lost first round, and I got to see some old nostalgia funny cars and front engine diggers and boy do I miss them days, and the Chi Town Hustler hit the wall in the left lane & scraped some paint off but a 41 willy's was not so lucky, after the 2-3 gear change(stick car) it got out of control and danced side to side and tagged the wall in the right lane, I was so bummed, it was the owners original car fro way back in the fifty's and he tossed his gloves in form at the car, and not the helmet, but he wil have some work to do later, but a great show, and weekend for my wife & I.

Norwalk again this weekend to try and get my license signed and make the 6 passes required to get the license thru NHRA, then I am legal all the way, and, the elky wants more fuel and I am out of cash to try an 1150 on the engine right now, so, I will read the plugs on the first pass and adj. as needed I guess, but hotter weather this weekend so I will see how it goes. Updates when i get back.

Hope th emove went ok, and $3000. for a trans, double ouch :x :x you guys that gotta go fast, I tell ya :) , you never quit huh? :D

This past weekend also caused the elky to come right off the ground in the front and really use them slicks also, and the photo guy got a great shot of it also, so I will see what I can do to add it to my space pics.

Ok, off for now, I need to watch the weather, eat and try to sell my 1050 and buy a 1150 or trade up with some cash, either way, it wants more fuel and air. 8)

Thanks for your reply Brian and I hope you get everything sorted out and get back to the cars stuff. Until then

Hey Brian, more things happening, I got my sportsman license this past weekend at Norwalk, and even had Bill BaderJr. sign it off :D :D , and a father & son team both signed off also and the 65+ year old dad has his adv. et license trying to run 5's in his altered, blown Oddy 540 (TURD) as he called it, nice piece also, so I made some new friends and went 9.98, 9.95 & 9.91 to finish the runs off. Great weekend for me also, even going red in the first round, but who cares, it runs 9's now :D. More updates later, and do you know anyone who has a Richmond 12 bolt PRO GEARSET of 4:56 ratio????? my 4:88 just goes thru the traps way too high for my likin, let me know if you find a set by chance, oh, and the new HP 1150 helped out also with the 9's, even in the hot weather 8)

Yeah, but when you could use some return on the investment, it sure would help out :) yeah, go ahead and LYAO, and you can send that check to help me go 8's any time now :D It is fun trying to go faster & faster, but the money seems to run out from time to time, so, if I can get a few bucks back once in a while, it will keep my wife happy and she will want to keep going to the track :D she diggs the crap out of it, and when I hit 9's, heck, I thought it was no big deal, but she went crazy, jumping all over me and wanting sex then :shock: LMAO now :D couple of Mike's hard lemonaid and in the tent we go 8) 8)
Anyway, the cooler weather is a comin up here in Michigan and I can't wait to run again, we are going to Memphis for the NMCA finals and can't wait to go, about 3 weeks from now, so I will throw some new rubber on the rear axle and hope for cooler temps, "and NO rain"! Yeah, I could also use a win or two to upgrade to an aftermarket trans case, either TCI or BES?, is that the company I am thinking of, no BTE that's it, and transfer my guts to the new case, maybe get a better convertor, who knows....
So I have a few weeks off and it will kill me I know it, but, hopefully it will pay off in Memphis, or later in a bracket race local here.

Good talking with you again Brian, stay cool 8)

ps, got an e-mail I can send a pic of my car to you?, it was on PINKS here in Detroit in July????? and when I get another picture scanned, I can send that one also, it does small wheelies, but more weight is in the making as I want higher and longer wheelies for the camera shots :D
