    $1500 give or take unless you can wait for deals like I did. I saved about $300 on the belt drive and $250 on the Distributor

    After watching this clip a few times I believe the dizzy is at the rear of the motor so I don't know how it is driven - intrigued much. Makes sense in a dirt car to avoid debris.

    Front drive setups became popular on rodents big & small with radical cam profiles / heavy springs causing cam cores to twist causing spark scatter - erratic timing as different lobes came into play.

    True racer right there.
    Build it
    Race it
    Break it
    Learn
    Repeat
    Then find the next weak link '-)
