Brand new car. This belongs to a good friend of mine. He's used the name "Heartbeat of America" on another car for more than 20 years. Years ago he was sponsored by GM.




It's 2,447lbs with a 210 driver in it and no fuel. (Rules is 2,450lbs)

We know your lying Rabbit! First thing you would do is put them bigass paddle tires on the back and go play in the dirt :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:
Seriously, my boys are bustin' my chops to take them down to Ga. and go for a ride in the dirt!

The motor, clutch, front and rear axle are where all the weight comes from. Even running light weight aluminum brakes / rotors and hubs the front axle (Dana 30) is still pretty heavy. + a 200 lb driver. Not sure what this bare frame weights, but it's pretty light.


It's not easy to build a Big Block (aluminum block) 4 wheel drive rail SAFELY and get it under 2,450 lbs. Most new rides like this one are chrome moly so you can use smaller tubing and make them lighter.
BTW those paddle tires we get from ya'll. They're worn out slicks that have the paddles vulcanized to them. You put the # of paddles to the amount of HP you have. Less hp power will have less paddles. Some guys stagger them too.

We're having our final points race in West Virgina next weekend. (September 12, 2009. Kanawha County, West Virginia. Fair Grounds)

We're also going to have a Quick 16 door slammer race at Neeses, Sc. on October 24.
