Hi all. I am Tim Kraushaar. I would like to start a build diarie so that as I progress I may have comment from those of you who know more than I do. The car is all 4130 with 1 3/4 and 1 1/4 tubing that is all .120 wall. The wb is 225" and the outside to outside of the main rails is 23 1/2". The engine is a 430" Rodeck using Hilborn's new rotary injectors. Much help on the frame came from good friends Steve Davis and Mike Chrisman. Richard Catton built the engine. As you can see I am well along and will be at B-Ville in 2010. I will be starting on the tanks and fire system this next week and should have that finished by months end. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your thoughts. Tim

Hope you have a huge pair of heads on that 430. We dynoed a 410 with the rotaries and his 18x Brodix heads won't let enough air through. Absolutley killed any hopes of big HP numbers. Those injectors are the coolest things since sliced bread though...........

The file won't open for me either on my MAC or my PC. Anyone else having the same problem? I'd rather have the pictures posted directly in the build diary if possible so everything's together for future reference. I'm really looking forward to following this build.

Hi Tim,

Glad to see you start a build diary. I could not bring the picture up also. How about posting some more.

Thanks,

Tom G.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Tim, thanks for posting your project but "no joy" on the pic.  What brand of fire system do you plan to use?
