Re: Motor in a SHORT car to drag fast !!!

remove some top weight as possiable , not for speed but to keep it  from tumbling in the shutdown Angila and Willys tend to become a little dancey at top end ( aerodynamics) and being as they are already setting high (Gasser style) have a tendancy to nose dive and tumble when they hit the shut down , mine stopped whan I ground out plastic from inside roof ,hood , body ..keep it light

Sounds like a problem with the center tilt cylinder... Thats all that holds the motor down when in reverse. Seals are pretty easy to install.
