Three Deuces Made Right

My swap meet purchase of three rebuilt Rochester 2GC carbs, an Edelbrock manifold, Speedway progressive linkage, and a Mallory dual-point distributor is not cutting it. The lead and rear carbs, although refurbished, still have the chokes in place. What mods need to be done to make the carbs pure dumpers, and is this a job a novice could tackle I have very little money to pay a rebuilder, and the wife and kids were hocked to buy the setup to begin with. I feel confident the upgraded 32...

The Materfamilias

This months issue has a story about Leah Pruett-Leduc, the amazing young Nostalgia Funny Car champ. It's difficult for any form of media to cover today's many females in drag racing without drawing lines back to Shirley Muldowney. While that connection may grow tiresome for the women in question, there's no doubt that Shirley blazed their trail. And so here goes with a little more retrospective to add to HOT ROD's revealing interview with Shirley in the Apr. '09 issue. The inset photo on the...

Jesse says, Twin variable...

Ashley Force Funny Car Destruction

Funny Ashley Force

Ashley Force must hate Maple Grove Raceway Reading, Pennsylvania . She crashed hard there in 2009 and lost two bodies in 2010, one from this big engine explosion. Spectator and HOT ROD reader Charley Powell caught the photo with his Canon Tli and a 250mm lens from the cheap seats. Check out how the violence lifted the rear tires off the ground. Charley said, The concussion made me forget to hold down the shutter for a shot sequence because I wanted to see it firsthand, not through the lens. For...
