Date Tags Sand Car

Back when it was a booming business building sand cars I was trying to get on board. That was until the market crash of 2008 and everyone went bankrupt.

I designed the chassis in ProE and built the car off of those. Not sure where the ones went that had the full cage on it but these give the idea of the drawings. For the suspension I used specialized software to optimize the design and specs to build in to.

Here is the rear a-arm suspension. Car had 20" of wheel travel front and rear

I installed a Cadillac Northstar engine

Put some King bypass shocks in the rear

Trying to get an idea of how I want the headers ran

It's on all 4 wheels now

Back from being dyno tuned, tuning the Haltec computer and headers built

Son Dane wants to go for a ride again. Notice the small seat in the back seat for him.

Shot of how the headers came out. These things sounded amazing and had the best tone out of most the cars out there. It was very noticable over and LS engine.
