Like this?

The square tank is 1” x 1” x .25”. The fuel ports are .1” dia with a .0625” hole. Volume of the tank is .825”x .825”x .150”

Nylon is already loaded in the printer with a .25mm nozzle.

Yep. I can bridge the top gap without any support. I can manually add support to the bottom port.

There may be a hint here..

Cox Pinto Funny Car - Almost to easy - Page 2 _5710
Cox Pinto Funny Car - Almost to easy - Page 2 _57-b10

The manual will tell you for sure.. but it looks to me as though the parts called "bullets" are what close the throttle and deploy the drag-chute. I would guess that a single bullet is threaded-onto the guide-line (and maybe secured by a knot?)somewhere around 3/4 of the way down the track.  Huh...  Huh... ???

You may have also seen the below photos.. but I'll post em' because of their relevance..

Hey Chancey, I don't know the history behind the "Bill Schifsky" top-fuel car. The photos are ones that I sourced from the internet some time ago.. when searching "Google-Images" for Cox models. You'd be surprised at what comes-up.

Here's a full-scale Bill Schifsky "yellow-bodied" variant-photo..

Tanks are done. Support material on bottom port was a bit difficult to remove but got it without breaking it off.

Pic with the top sealed up and with them complete.

Thanks for those pictures roddie, helps a lot. I have never seen what those little "bullets" look like.

I did receive that manual bought on ebay for $13. + and near worthless. A reprint so light it's barely readable, cut at an angle and stapled together randomly. Gotta leave one of my very rare negative feedbacks.

And Jason. They look great. PM sent.

Cox Pinto Funny Car - Almost to easy - Page 2 Empty Cox Vega funny car vs Danny Ongais dragster race

Post  706jim Tue Jun 20, 2023 8:38 pm

Many years ago, we set up a drag race in the basement hallway of our local university. Vega funny car vs the "rail" dragster. No electric starters at the time....
We brought along wax for "burnouts" and set the two cars up to race down the guide strings.
Our biggest problem was getting both engines started at about the same time.
Actual results? (Honest would I lie to this group?)
The funny car beat the dragster off the line but the dragster caught up on the top end to pass the funny car.

Honest

I started this thread back in January 2019, an oldie.

Jason stepped in a helped get it running again. He built (3D printer) new front axles and a fuel tank, much appreciated as both work great.

@joeythefix ???

If you added anything, your message must not have gone through. It looks like you only quoted rsv1cox's message (who quoted roddie) above.
