Re: high speed problem 70 Cuda

90/10 shocks always let the front end stay lifted in my personal experience. Putting a front air dam/spoiler while the fornt end is that high in the air is going to do nothing but cause additional aerodynamic drag. Does the car still have torsion bar front suspension? Start tightening the front susp...

Re: Finally Broke into the 4's

4.80's of course! "Frank" is the nickname Mike gave the engine in Ol' Blue. I'm not sure if it was because it was big, ugly, or made up of a mix of parts that didn't quite fit together?

Re: It's comming along nicely!

Wings do a great job of pushing the air past the rear of the vehicle to eliminate the merge point of the air flowing over the top of the car and the air flowing underneath the car. This helps the car be more stable at speed. Very rarely are wings used to create downforce. Pro Stock cars have rules t...

Next you'll be telling him to put orange hockey stripes on it. Danged hockey players. Hope removing part of that colon brought out some sense of style that's been repressed.

Re: On hold again.....

I guess if John says that's brother Mikey, I'll have to believe him. Besides, I don't want to argue with the site owner, that wouldn't look good.....LOL I'm still working on my secret weapon for this season, but it's starting to worry me. I told Mikey this, but I went from 274 lbs. to my current we...

What are the specific rules that limit you to a 200 shot? I assume it's jet size probably in a single stage plate. Is there a spec nitrous system you have to run?
