Bill suggested I start a thread over here. Thanks for the warm welcome !! A little history / video of our car >>

This video covers the first 8 years with our rear engine funny car. From no body at all, to the one run disaster of the black roadster body (RIP) From no handling at all, to going straight. From doggedly slow, to decent performance, BUT the best is yet to come, a new NITRO motor is nearing completion, we will be running an A/Fuel combo, later this year !! We have truly found a home with the AHRA, Rod Saint and the entire crew have been awesome to us, watch for us to hit a few of their events too 8) Video >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUq1LHaqMmc

Team BackMotor wishes to thank our sponsors: Kathleen Tax / Arias Pistons / R & R Connecting Rods !!
