    Re: Laser XE coming back

    As I recall, Stephan aka Frenchy had motorcycle rear brakes on his charger.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    No,well maybe, cause I'll be adding more weight with the cage, chute and trans ballistic blanket. BUT, I can start cranking up the boost, so who knows?

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    Another farmboy engineering photo dump for the record.

    Decided to go ahead and make the car NHRA legal, turn the boost knob up, and see what the old 8V car can really do.
