Restoration dragster of the 60s...

After talking to Ron Scholz this morning about magnets, I went to my local track to find out we could still zap the magnet in this old timer.
http://bracket500.com/links/howto/dragster.html
So I took everything apart and handed to motor to the owner of the track, before hand I ran the dragster to see what kinds of numbers I would get, it ran a 2:978 then we zapped the magnet, ohh was I ready to see this old timer fly,... it ran a whole 2:946..... OHH this is definitely not rocket science..........   

Hmmm now the trick to this old bombers is the rear axle and play... More coming next week....

Marty no, it's not this motor, it's some that Ron Scholz has.
I'm working on making the next pass a lot faster.... 
Maybe I'll get in the 28s.

DVan, hit up your R/C parts supplier and see if you can make the thrust bearing for a pan car work on the axle between the bushing and the lock nut, been meaning to try it myself on my edge test mule


I know more than I will ever admit to
