    Has anyone built a circuit inspired rod ?

    In Britain ????????????

    Most rods are built in a traditional manner, using mainly very similar parts and to a similar formula, which is V8, big n littles, etc. I know the reasons for this, and it's probably how I'd build my own, but was just wondering if anyone had built a rod to actually handle and go like a race car.

    I'm sure I remember a Pop bulit in the 90's that had a well 1700 built x-flow and big alloys, and cage, etc, but can't find anything on it.

    Can't remember exactly how long ago but Bernie Chodosh and Simon Lane built a '34 for circuit racing. Some one must have a pic......Timetravel??.
    Cars still around but in a different guise.

    Although that was a circuit racer that became a rod so probably doesn't count

    If Berpop is a consideration I don't know if you'd count something like the Beadmore's lowlight Minor hillclimb/sprint car?

    Not from Britain, but saw this one in Sweden (you might recognise it from this month's CC, but here's some more detailed shots).

    Wasn't Phil Rutherford's blue 34 roadster built in a track style many moons ago with lots of attention paid to the suspension set up/brakes etc? Anyone remember much about it?
