This will work for sure.... The arm has to be shorter then the ones I have. or they will hit the wheel... Even on them... If you draw the lines through the king pins... You will see you can get it closer,, But not dead on...

It is one of the most interesting threads ever on any site! I wish he could have kept on it right to the end without stopping it would have been mind blowing to see how fast this car could have been created from NOTHING. I have shown this thread to many people and it always gets the same jaw dropped response. Honestly, one of the most enteresting and educational threads ever.

Just for the records for the ones here that was thinking the car was so heavy.... Me and speedydeedy went weigh the c-cab today....

The c-cab weighed in at 2240.lbs with the big block and trans just like you see it in this picture... That should put a end to the weight Question..A good closure..

I'd say that horsepower to weight ratio should work out well.

Frankly Randy, I don't understand all the drama. It's a great car, built by a talented man, from a pile of not much. I like the car and I'm just waiting to see how it turns out in the end. More power to you.
