Iv been into building cars and other toys for a long time now. My family owns a custom conveyor and package handling equipment company (which I also work at). I had access to so many awesome fab tools over the years, it helps when being able to build these toys. Shears, breaks, welders, full machine shop, waterjet, most of any metal I would ever need and so much more. I do most of the engineering and Im very good with AutoCAD and Inventor, which also helps with designing parts for these toys.
I got into drag racing when I was in highschool and purchased a old 4cyl mustang and started dropping over cent i made into it.
Long story short, it got a V8 and became a full blown drag car.
Fastest pass was a 9.70 ET@ 143 MPH - That was on a small nitrous shot (125HP)
Few weeks after, we put a larger kit on it, and it stood on the bumper and leaned the motor bad and killed some of the pistons. I also over-revved the engine very bad on that pass.
Here is a picture of the final pass, on the bumper, passing a chevy!
