Although I put new leaf springs on, never liked the ride (soft), or the low in the back stance.
Thinking down the road, if I do get this thing to hook up, spring wrap causes tire hop.
4 link out of the question, traction bars maybe, put some spring helpers on.
It improved the ride-firmer and if the backs are stiff, hopefully the front wont wrap.
Not sure if I've got enough horse power to worry about it any way.
And my project for next week arrived. But reading the instructions- I probably got the wrong kit.
3.55 gears/posi made it come alive.
I pulled up to a stop light, in the left turn lane was a chevell.
Jacked up in the back w/ big tires. He was all over my car, giving me the thumbs up.
Racked his pipes, so I hit neutral and them new mufflers go.
He hit his clutch like he wanted to go.
So I jacked mine up against the foot brake.
He's a young kid with a shat eating grin, probably a 4 or 5 or 6 speed
and a big block. But he's jammed up in the left turn lane.
When the green hit I nailed it, she spun both tires about 4-5 feet
and hooked up. Woof, thats what I expected when I started this build.
It should launch harder than that at the track Sunday, I'm hoping to get under
2 second 60 ft. times. Pretty sure it will, and I can lower tire pressure if needed.
All the planning, reading, blood, sweat and tears but posi-traction and the right set of gears
woke it up. Now I'm thinking 4.56 are too low, haven't put that one together yet, see what happens this weekend.
Now I've got serious doubts about the 1.66 I got on that time slip.
pulled the 3.36 carrier out, pulled the posi
from that and put it in the 3.55, and back in car
tires on in am and test drive.
received 4.56 gears and posi, that should wake up my 60ft times.
Might be able to get that in before the track closes for winter.
