The Funny Car Kit is modeled similar to a Funny Car dragster. Underbody weight pockets place the weight at the back of the car so that your car can be fast and will look good.
The Funny Car Kit includes a pre-cut pine block with weight pockets, steelbars, plastic car parts, and tungsten cubes, and instructions. Wheels and axles are not included, so use the wheels and axles supplied by your club or order them separately.
Two types of standard wheel base versions are available:
- 5652 - Standard Wheel Base - Axle Slots: Precision-cut axle slots that match BSA specifications in placement, depth, and width.
- 5653 - Standard Wheel Base - Axle Holes: Precision-drilled axle holes that match BSA specifications for placement. The holes are drilled with a #44 bit (fits BSA axles).
The following standard options are available:
- 5653 - Drilled axle holes, 4 wheels on the ground - add $1.00.
- 5653 - Drilled axle holes for Awana axles (3/32" bit) - add $1.00.
Notes on Car Parts
A full compliment of plastic car parts is included with the bundle. You can use as many of the parts as you choose. For the model shown, the blower was attached to the hood and the pipes we glued under the car. To make the pipes fit and meet clearance, the pipes were epoxied together and, after the epoxy dried, the base of the pipes were cut off with a fine toothed saw (a hacksaw blade will work). The pipes were then epoxied to the bottom of the car.
