Explorer as a Bracket Racer!!
ok guys/gals, I finally found a cheap explorer to build my bracket racer out of. It was a victiam of the Katrina Hurricane. This explorer wasnt completely under water.....just the back half. In the next coming weeks I'll be stripping this thing down to AS LIGHT as i can get it and the outside still appear stock looking. Any help with information will be greatly apprciated. This explorer will be stripped of all wiring, engine, transmission, interior, console, dash, everything not nessary to drive it down a drag strip. I'll remove and rebuild the brakes, the rear end and reuse the driveshaft and steering stuff. The rest will all be low cost custom and may even include many mustang parts, including a mustang EFI 302 cu in engine, and old school C-4 transmission.
all suggestions are welcome, as well ALL SPONSORS are welcome. This truck could appear in NMRA's TRuck and Lightning class in 2007 as well as the FFW Tough Truck class. For more details join me at my website and sign up in the forums at
