And that car has probably both for sure LOL.
Wayne Gapp and his crew moved the firewall back several inches. Motor setback is 10" using a motor plate setup. The car has never been on an NHRA track, since its never had a harness, legal fuel lines, open lug nuts, etc for a car this fast. It wasn't originally built with a cage at all. Somewhere along the way, it had a 6 pt piece installed. It was never intended for the strip, and spent its entire life street racing.
