Thumbs up Art Morrison Drag Ifs In A 60 Pontiac

ART MORRISON Ent. drag IFS is a versatile kit that I have recently modified in order to work with my stock chassis (1960 Pontiac Bonneville), the motor for this project produces 966 HP/860 torque @ WOT, one of many reasons to get rid of the stock front chassis. Prep work and how it all came together can be seen in my album. I e-mailed the pics to Art, since it was in fact the first 60 P project using his drag IFS.

How to get to my album: click on 'gallery'. This will take you to my album. Click on album title.

Pretty cool. Somewhere I have shots of my Grandfathers twin '62 Bonnevilles. One of my favorite cars. I can't wait to see more shots.

Cool MORE PICS

Thanks, Bh.

Unfortunatley, pics showing the body are still way off, since I'm still working on the chassis, engine etc. I did encounter some unforseen problems with the A.M. stainless Mustang II spindles, which I polished, then, however, found out, that Wilwood had supplied a Super BSL6 kit that is too strong for this spindle... luckily tec support at Art Morrison Ent. is outstanding and we managed to solve some of the problems. Stuff like that sets you back to square one and it can be quite frustrating at times. next thing I found out was that the Wilwood rotors supplied with the kit wasted 1/7th of the brake pads?? A.M. again got this sorted out and now I have the correct rotor size. This, however, was not the end of it, finally I found out that this particular hub has a different bolt pattern than my rim, again, not what I had ordered from Wilwood. A.M. rang up Wilwood and queried the different bolt pattern The answer was, it's OK to drill a separate pattern into the hub since it's strong enough. A.M. asked, would Wilwood do it? Of course, the answer was, NO.

There's the UPs as well, like the motor Matt Grillo from Lizzard Racing put together for me - super guy, super job.
