I see you have a problem with sarcasim too..
Based on my observations, and Jayson's response, it seemed to me that folks here with a lot of tenure were ganging up on him, a new member, with only a couple of posts.

These new fellas need advice, but also need some positive reinforcement.

Thank you for your post above to Jayson.

And for folks that spell Camaro with an E.... sorry, that's a pet peeve.

you guys have me at a disadvantage, I am not good with cars or this web site. still trying to figure both out.
But let me be clear, I am not here to disrespect anyone. I'm only looking for advice and perhaps find a few friends in the process. Thanks again for all the advice...negative or possative. I'll take what I can get! I thank all who have taken sometime out of their day to talk to me.
Once again, Thanks and God Bless! Jayson

I built a few of these, felt the same exact way you did about not wanting a front brake setup. Got in a car accident because of it and totalled the car. Believe me its worth it to have it, not only will you be able to drive safely everywhere but it will be much more fun to drive because you wont have to worry about stopping.

Whether you go with drum drum or disc drum or disc disc we can help you get it setup. I went with disc drum and switched to disc disc and LOVE IT!

If you can afford it go with a disc disc power brake setup, it will feel like a new car, PM me anytime you need help. Im doing a disc disc conversion on a 59 chevy truck right now and have run into EVERY problem imaginable so I can help you prevent this from happening to you. I finally got it dialed in and its SO MUCH better to drive, feels safe, easy to slow down, and when I need to I can stop instantly....like thay say "better to be safe than sorry"
