Its Alive

Over the winter of 2007/2008, Big Red Ram was torn down and rebuilt. The three year old 540 came out in favor of a pretty radical 580CI. The transmission was freshen -- and the clutch was just redone prior to the last race of last season. A new rear chunk, spool, and gears were bought and set up, and the old one put in the trailer as a spare. Actually there's a new transmission and shifter on order -- but it isn't in yet. We'll swap that in and and make some bigger headers mid season.

This is the video of the motor getting fired up after put in the car. Tomorrow, some loose ends will get finished and the car put on the ground to get aligned and the wheelie bars installed. The day after we'll take it to the track.
