i thought drag was gay B?
i aint b, but drag is gay, and that tC is SICK!
Could probably hit 6.3 if its perfect.
i always did like the tc's
i think drag racing is pretty lame. i'd never dump that kind of cash into a car to get to drive it for a whopping 6 seconds of my life a couple times a month.
but still, that car hauls ass.
AFter all that work, that car is as much a Scion as my Civic is a Renault Turbo5.
About 6 months ago, the car was bodied as a Celica.They must have gotten sponsership from Scion. I originally thought Christian Rado was gonna run that radical new FWD monster under the Scion bodywork. Haven't seen it yet.
Too bad, considering all the work was done by Bob Norwood Racing. Had a traditional-style Ford 9inch driving the rear wheels with an X-drive tranfercase, and huge ass front tires. NHRA tried phasing it out twice through rule changes - I wonder if they succeeded this time.
they have a celica also
Wow. That's really not a Scion though- RWD, custom chassis? C'mon.
well nero has a wealthy family so i guess you could say he didnt drop all that money. he was driving a gt3 porsche so he has the best of all worlds.
my friend works there so i get the scoop on things.
impressive, cant wait to see it run up in colorado next year
They prolly dropped the Celica because they have a Toyota factory sponsorship. And the Celica is no longer being sold in the US (And may not even be made)
Just like AEM's drag "Civic,"...rear-wheel drive, NSX motor...that's just the nature of the sport, the actual drag vehicles have little or nothing to do with the production cars they are modeleled after...
Kinda like NASCAR
all pro drag cars are tublular bodies anyway... so it doesnt really matter what sheel it is.
anybody remember that funny car ITR they made a few years ago? They took a v8 block and split it to make some 4000hp 4 cyl? It was in some magazine i cant remember which one.
