Go from a mild 502 chevy bowtie crate motor sporting 502 horse power or a 565ci dart/pontiac combination making 825 hp on pump gas. If that's not enough go for the pro series 582ci- 632ci drag crate engines making 1200-1600 hp. Your diecast will fly off the table with one of these( maybe that's not a good idea). All engines start with new blocks race prepped. Bored, torque plate honed, splayed main caps, decked, line bored, One piece cam bearings and brass freeze plugs. Either single carb or dule carb sheet metal fabricated intkes available w/Holley dominator carbs. All engines also dyno tested in house on our SF902 engine dyno.



Ok. I have so many parts all over the place I figured I may as well open a speed shop.  :lol

That's some collection of heavy artillery there, Brian!

Nice work.  Reminds of when we used to go over to the Rehr-Morrison shop in Arlington, Texas to pick up our puny little road racer small blocks, and there would be all these fire-breathing big block drag motors all over the place.

Happy Holidays and keep up the great work!

:cheers

I don't even know. I bought the body only, on ebay. Then I built the tube chassis for it. I have another nova like it ,but it's grey and arange, and has kind of a yucky chassis. I like it though.

I have a question for members. Are the parts I've made something that you would be interested in if they were for sale. I am already getting some parts ready for a few people, but I don't know what they should cost. I guess what I'm asking is what does everyone think a fair price would be for the parts I make. Here is a list:

Complete engines-
dual carb intakes-
single carb intakes-
dominator carbs-
reg holley carbs-
electric fuel pumps-
fuel cells w/sumps-
optima style batteries-
automatic transmissions-
B&M prostick shifters-
nos bottles-
nos kits w/bottle,brackets,gauge(plate system)-
Also they could be painted or not painted.

I'd sell resin engine long blocks, but I did not make them I only made resin copies. I don't want to step on the toes of the original maker of the engine blocks. Anyway, All feedback is welcome and needed. I'd like to get some parts out there and see what other modders create with them. I think they add a bit of realism to the cars. I'm not an expert resin maker so they are not perfect, but I believe they look real enough for the scale. Thanks.

Superb work, Brian ! :3tens:
You're obviously a perfectionist and nothing wrong with that but I do feel you're not giving yourself due credit for these beauties.
Darn awesome in my book ! :tongue

Thanks Bug. What do you think a fair price would be for them? I have no idea.They were time consuming to make, but now that the molds are made it's pretty easy to duplicate them.

i listed fair prices for them seeing as i was in the bussiness the idea is to return the price of your materials then profit. you dont want to copy another resin makers parts thats bad JUJU

Thanks. That is a good start. Are you still in the bussiness? It's just a hobby for me. The engines I made out of resin came out of cars that I took apart so I didn't get them from another resin maker. Yeah, that would be bad. I did have to modify the engine blocks to be able to make the mold. Thanks again.

A twin turbo V12 out of a Mercedes S Class AMG would be a better fit in my opinion.

Now that's an engine. I'd make those too, but I don't think there's much call for a top fuel funnycar motor in a street car or a door slammer. Although that would be really cool. :giggle

Actually there is quite a market for these motors. I know quite a few guys that used the supercharged hemi engines for their promod style custom models. You have quite a collection, really nice stuff.

Any chance you could craft me a Sledgehammer Callaway Corvette - now that is a project I would be more than happy for you to commence for me. For reference see: http://www.fastcoolc...ledgehammer.htm

Wow I didn't even know this post still existed,LOL. Simondc07 I'll look at the site. I'm sure I can do it. I have a lot more engines now with sooo many different options.
I'm glad you like your engine. I'm on the fence with the valve covers. I made those a long time ago. I have some new ones if you're interested. Here's a pic of some new engines.
