The current GSTA Dragster

 

New Paint for 2011

GSTA’s current car was built in 2004 by GSTA with a chassis by Stubby Abraham. It was modified in 2010 by Creative Metalworks to a more nostalgia look with a new roll cage and full body. The car used an injected nitro/alcohol Rodeck 350 tall block from 2006 to 2009. It currently is running a Dart 440 cid engine with Enderle alcohol injection.
