Titanium throws white sparks.......ALL over the place........I wouldn't use copper, but more power to you if you did.

Titanium......

Drag blocks are actually manufactured for this and bolt on your ride, when they wear down, buy more......check on E-bay. I think a set goes for around $50

I always thought about bolting a trailer hitch ball upside down to your frame. Dont know if it would spark a lot or not, but it would be cheap, and easy to replace. ;) :biggrin:

Since price is an issue, why don't you get fish string and tie 10 soda cans, and drag the shit out of them. First thing I would do is change that Avator :uh:

Don't use fish string, the brake cables are better, and I like to mix in a few beer cans.

Titanium kicks ass.Dont bother with expensive blocks though. Go to a swap meet and get used race titanium valves from an engne. Cheep and lots of em. The drag blocks are good for about 40 good drags . Used up 4 blocks in one weekend at slamfest in tampa

Nah my 63 doesn't need a skid plate. I think those went out in 1973. Since you have lawnmower blades on your Cutlass, maybe you could get a job cutting grass at the parks. Change your signature too, unless you really are that hard of a G. :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:
