FNG


Hi guys, my name is Tom and I'm looking at building a car for F.A.S.T. As Greg could tell you, I've been trying to get through on the other site like everyone else, except that it wouldn't even register me. I'm glad to see the new site.

While I have a copy of the rules and I find they are self explanatory, I'll probably have a few questions as my build goes along. I'm probably going the long route of building a car from the frame up, so it may take awhile to get on the track. But hopefully by 2009 I'll have a car I can pound on with everyone else.

Oh yeah, it's a Studebaker emoticon .

Thanks!

Tom

Tom,
WELCOME ABOARD, finally!

If you have questions, feel free to ask, most all are more than willing to help another F.A.S.T. racer out anyway they can.

Re: FNG


Thanks guys! Yes, this will car will have a supercharger. I haven't decided whether to go R2 or the harder to find R3. I'm initially thinking I may try and see what I can do with the R2.

I'm working on a street car project, but I'm probably going to start with a frame and start from the ground up until I can find a nice 2-dr body. One benefit of a Studebaker is that they put R2 engines in everything including station wagons. Having been a Mopar guy for many years, I'm still learning about these cars, but the learning curve hasn't been that steep. It should be a lot of fun.

Dave, you're in Sterling Heights, right? Do I get a tour of the shop over Thanksgiving weekend? I'm visiting my parents in the area. That and I need to visit Phoenix Coney Island.

Re: FNG


I think a blower Stude would be killer!
I know that the stude blocks are nearly indestructible. You can overbore it what, .125+, then toss in a big stroker, port the snot out of everything, go into the blower and tweek it for about 15 pounds boost, drop it into a light little Stude with a 4 speed... look out! :holy:
