72 C20 Street/Strip project
I'm taking my original post from the "introduce yourself" forum and copying and pasting it here where it is more appropriate. Thanks.
I would love to run this truck on the track here and there, and depending on how things go, maybe do a little bracket racing. We have a track 40miles away. I have a one owner 1972 Chevy C20 with a fresh 454 >30 over running oval port 781's with valve work done to allow the 280 comp cam to work to its best potential. Flat top pistons running approx 9.5 to 9.75:1 compression. Performer intake, and freshly rebuilt 850 double pumper. Headers and dual Flowmaster 3" exhaust. It has the stock 12 bolt 4:11 rear end. I am in the process of installing a th400 tranny with a 2800+ stall. I am looking at installing the Caltracks brand traction system for less wheel hop. Open for options here too! I am flipping the axle, and have already takin out several load springs. Not much available for kits in the C20 for lowering the front suspension. May just do the old "heat the coil spring" trick. It needs to go about 1-2" lower max in the front. Would love to hear some tricks for making this a better street/strip truck!, or pointing me to a forum that may help. Thanks Guys.
