Sooo, I never got ready with my Pank restoration, not yet. That hurts to be honest. Intentions are very clearly that Pank must run on VW meeting or two prior to final retire. It will happen.
For now the focus is on Pank II.
Ola Malm and Stefan Kocken Allansson are good team members.

The dragster was purchased in USA in April.
It was built in the mid 90s in California. Then sold a couple of times and ending up in Alabama.
It had been stored since 1999.
Few real documented facts existed.
I have now updated the dragster and got it SFI tagged/approved two days ago.

Engine has been given an update and a lot of hoses, nipples and methanol damaged parts been replaced.
Transmission is tested.
A test run/shake-down is planned in few weeks.  
Next year a complete overhauled dragster will be run at several events but no competition is planned.
It is a Pauter Gen 1 Engine.
104 bore and 96 stroke i.e. 3311 cc
Roller cam and Hilborn injection running 100% methanol.
4 stage Pauter dry sump
The transmisison is PG with transbrake and to my surprise it has a 8" converter that is bolted together. Unheard of  in 1999 apart from in very few places.

Several updates and refreshments going on.
But two "feel good" ones are the new wheels and the safety cage update.

Not a beautiful sight but it worked really well on 24 psi boost.
I am still very positively surprised in finding this technology in a very old car.  A1 did the transmission so I guees the converter might be so too.

This feels so potent and I hope it will give me "brown stains" in a private area when releasing the transbrake.
The one way valve leaks a bit so the needle has dropped in the picture but the intake pressure quickly peaks to 25+ psi.
Test run on the track is pretty close now.

So she runs!
Pretty powerful too.

I have managed two testruns in Mosten Denmark.
Run #1 was 100% as per plan. It is more than 20 years since I sat  in a  dragster. Calm and controlled.
Run#2 was 90% as per plan.
Good burn out through both gears.
Good launch with at 5000 rpm and 25 psi boost (1.7 bar approx)
BUT I had intentionally set a very low MSD chip in the MSD /AL at 7400 rpm for the firts run and had intention to put in a 8500 chip for my second run. I forgot.
So with a 1.3 60 foot and through first in to second, all OK.
Then I hit the MSD chip, a backfire stopped all the fun on second gear.

6.0 on first gear (coasting to the finish line at 130 km/h) promises good potential for full runs.

Car is OK and if weather permits, I aim at one more test on the local Malmö track prior to Winter setting in.

Log data.

I did 175 km/h att 100 meter (330 ft) 3.6 seconds
Shift from first to second was at 7500 rpm at this same point the car bogged hitting the revlimiter and I coasted down to 135 km/h.
This means it would have been a clear low 5 second run at a bit over 210 km/h.

Next time proof will be in the pudding.  I am happy though. It felt good.
1.3s 60 foot should also be low as 1.1s when things are all in order. That will be a nice asskicker. :-)
