I think that is the first time I have seen a rear engined flattie dragster and the damn thing has 2 of them! Great idea but I feel the flathead, more so than all other engines, really needs to be in the right place (i.e. in front of the driver).

+What about you getting another jag motor and then we design a 4 - wheel drive dragster with 2 engines??
One engine in the normal position driving the back wheels with the other turned round driving the front wheels.Put one of your whitewall piecrusts on each corner and you would smoke the whole quarter!!! :shock:
you would be a star --- T.V. SID. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've got a twin flattie powered FED.... Well, I have most of the ingrediants to build one, I just need to focus my attention and find some more free time.
It'll be just for fun of course but it's inspired by Flathead jack.

I hope you get the focus and time - even a single Flathead FED would be good to see, I hear the odd rumour about them now and then and of course there is Charles Bang. A twin flattie powered FED would be great.
