Quick question for you Chris, how much weight will those jr. dragster wheels support? Also I am sure you made your own spindles for them, are they straight or tapered spindles? The reason I ask is I am building a limited pro stock diesel puller and taking a much different approach to it than most kind of like yourself and I love the look of those wheels.

Welcome to the forum whalen. You should be able to run the drag wheels just fine there's a few already in that class that run them.

The spindles are straight. I made them out of 4130 chrome moly. The front wheels would be fine, But I may just make some new ones that match the rears now. Welcome to the forum.

Today I sent hood out to have a mold made our of it. It got painted white just to have the mold made. I don't think I'll ever see that steel one back. I let the guy that makes the parts for me keep it. Chris rose is the guy that makes the carbon fiber hoods for me. Let me just say you can't find a better guy. He does amazing work.

That look pretty darn hot with that white on it. Looks like someone can shot a little pain as well as fab.

Your tractor looks amazing so far! I am curious why you have 3 engines all set up differently. Is it to be able to run in different classes or for different venues? I used to be into stock cars and lots of guys had a spare engine or two, but usually all set up pretty much the same, as we always raced at the same track.

Here are some pictures of the work that Chris Rose is doing to make the mold for the carbon fiber front ends. Chris is a pro when it come to making parts like this. When I get this back it will only need a light sanding ready for primer and paint.
