Red FD wrecked in NC

The wife saw a red one damaged in the front pretty badly at I-40 and I-540 this afternoon. Anyone we know?

There are only a handful of red FDs in the area - we know it's not Ashraf's - and I only know of about two others. Hopefully everyone involved was okay.

We have a couple of red FDs that come to the RRDIs. I've not seen a post from either of these guys yet, hopefully it wasn't one of them. Hopefully no one physically injured, however, with a lot of frontend damage I know the owner is going to need serious psychological counselling.

ya it must have been a different one, he has been working on several FD's lately. They sure are very expensive to repair if anything happens to them. Thats why Im looking for a FD roller that I can put a n/a big streetported 13B in it with a carb, would be very reliable, and make great HP.

Damn you HATE forced induction camocarl!!!

Hell, might as well go for an all out PP motor, you know you have one "laying around" somewhere.. hah. Who cares that you'd have to launch at 4K at a stop light....

(are they REALLY that bad, or just have a very low power band down low... I mean, there's GOT to be atleast 40 lbs of torque to get her moving at a normal pace... (periphial port that is)
