What class are you planning on running?

NSCA,NMRA,?? I see that the car is a 10.5" car. Your worrk on the car looks great. You guys are ballsy running that fast on that size tire. I know a guy running a F3 procharger SBC on a 10" tire at 7.9'[email protected] No spoiler or anything to help the top end stability. I love watching them run but give me my big ole meats,wing & whatever else will help me!! LOL!! How do you like your Billet Fab oil pan & Titan oil pump? I am putting a Billet Fab 2 piece pan withbaffle balls and a Titan Pro pump on as we speak. Hope they work as good as they cost. Good luck with your car.

Alright Gerry,

Fess up. How did you get the engine to sit that low in the chassis. One pic makes it look as though the carb is the same height as the cowl. Is it?

Does the AJE k-member allow it to sit that much lower? Did one of those pics show the k-member you sold me with some spacers? If so, did you ever install the engine to see how low you could get it?

At any rate, it looks good. You're making progress. I'm not. Still haven't installed the k-member yet. Waiting to get the Strage struts and coil over kit then I'll swap it over one day.

Were you using spacers with the K-member I got from you? Just curious if I should buy or make some......

Just curious. One of your pics in the slideshow showed the D&D k-member in your car with some aluminum spacers.

I'll have a Victor on top of my 466. Just wondering if you needed the spacers with the D&D k-member to get the engine to sit low enough.
