One of the roller cars we bought and sold was a E/A.We ran it s a 9.90 car.It was a shortly,I think it was a 96" car.The only 9.90 car in a whole bunch that was very close to a serious crash in a oil down that happened in front of us.Slid in the oil and got upon two wheels,but came back down.At 96" it was a handful on the top end until the following yr where we stretched it to 125". It would hook on ice.A 1.27 to 1.25 60'er.Had guys wondering how we got it from 1800lbs to 2350lbs.LOL.They kept scaling it.LOL.But a consistent winner that ran the number.

Ya know you think back to the old time Alters Like"Pure Hell" and "Pure Heaven",those did have a very high crank center line."Wild Willy" winged express was also a very high crank center line too.

Couple more questions.Is this a front straight axle car??. What does is it's wt??. R & P steering??. It is cert'ed??. A moly frame??. Good shocks??. Tight 4 link ends or are those going to need to be replaced??. Four wheel brakes??. Who's brakes?? Got a chute and is that in date??. Any electronics come with it??.

This is in part a check list we use when buying rollers.
