On the rearend, you could use the little sherpa set up, stock axles are easilly shortened without resplining.

    I know you want the old timey look, but I hope your planning more of a cage than the roll over bar in the pic, that offers little to no protection, you'll be surprised how quick it'll be, my slingshot was running 112mph with the V6, plenty quick in a small car.
    just depends on his cash dont it, im giving him the cheapest route i know possible, due to knowing where bits and bobs are that could potentially give him a basic dragster. thanks for the reply mate..it will deffo be safe!

I can get hold of bits that will give him a rolling chassis, wont be the pretiest thing, but it wont be bad either, it may not be in proper slingshot fashion, but if its built for the drag purpose, its a dragster. If a beam set up comes along when he has the cash and hes happy to get it, thats all good!...Thanks for the link btw
