  • September 20 2017, 06:13:03 PM TexasT: no posts in the waiting room for the last sixty days, that was a bad investment for the buyer
  • September 20 2017, 06:33:53 PM Be4u: That place is just a museum now. I just spent 'how long' reading old threads. Im over here busting a gut. Good stuff!
  • September 20 2017, 07:14:30 PM Be4u: [link]
  • September 20 2017, 09:19:23 PM Steve Wood: I need to get Brad come down and sort out the suspension so I can get into the gas hard   [link]
  • September 20 2017, 09:24:50 PM nocooler: Looks like fun Steve!
  • September 20 2017, 09:38:48 PM Scoobum: That thing sounds sweet!
  • September 20 2017, 10:25:40 PM Steve Wood: sound better if I ever get some tail pipes out the back, I think.  I need some wide, smooth pavement so I can try to figure out why it kicks hard to the left.  That was mostly about 1/2-3/4 throttle in low.  Looks like both tires are spinning...I don't know if the limited slip is giving up the ghost when the torque comes on, or what
  • September 20 2017, 10:27:04 PM Steve Wood: The back end is starting to come around just before letting off for a second
  • September 20 2017, 10:38:56 PM Scoobum: Freeze it at 6 seconds. Smoke's coming off the right. Black streak from the right tire...nothing on the left. Clutvh pack fukd?
  • September 20 2017, 10:51:51 PM Steve Wood: Maybe, but I am thinking the torque is taking load of the right rear and adding load to the left rear...you can see the left wheel was leaving rubber at launch but the road is not smooth so the mark is not as obvious as i was standing on the edge of the road
  • September 20 2017, 10:53:37 PM Steve Wood: later, I did a light leave on a smoother road and then came back to look at it...two stripes of rubber, but that does not mean the clutches are getting overwhelmed as the torque gets up there
  • September 20 2017, 11:05:22 PM Steve Wood: I'm sure it does not help that I have such big torsion bars and sway bar on the front.  It is not gonna move much weight to the back on launch.
  • Today at 02:06:27 AM Be4u: I don't see a problem, that was Badass!
  • Today at 08:50:36 AM Scoobum: Adjust the ride height...set 'er up like a Gasser! It'll hook...lol!
  • Today at 09:07:27 AM Steve Wood: LOL, I put a Hotchkiss road course suspension on it which lowered it quite a bit, then I cranked the torsion bars up as high as the front would go because the deep oil pan was plowing gravel at times.  I have not installed the rear sway bar yet because I need a good welder to install the brackets and the only good welder I know here will take two years to do it.  Don't know if I ever posted it but here is some of the stuff that I have done to it.  [link]
  • Today at 09:27:19 AM Scoobum: Didn't realize the rust it had in it. Looked like an Ontario car from the outset...dayum!
  • Today at 09:29:18 AM Steve Wood: yep, that was really discouraging
  • Today at 09:30:17 AM Scoobum: Was it an Original Texas car...spent its whole life there? Trying to wrap my head around how it could rust in such a dry climate.
  • Today at 09:33:42 AM Scoobum: Have my vehicles sprayed once a year. Not a mark on them. The stuff 'creeps'.............. .............. ........[link]
  • Today at 09:35:20 AM Be4u: Is that your boyfriend in pic 16?
  • Today at 09:43:16 AM Steve Wood: I don't know about the prior life of the car before the prior owner.  She bought it in Dallas.  Mopars were known for rust but this one looked like a northern car.  that's not my BF, I don't date married guys
  • Today at 09:44:11 AM Be4u: Oh, I thought you put the ring on it.
  • Today at 10:12:03 AM Steve Wood: gonna put one in your nose and hook a chain on it.  Deal with that!
  • Today at 10:50:10 AM daveismissing: Steve's moral compass takes another spin?
  • Today at 11:48:12 AM Steve Wood: The poles are shifting and I am the trendy type
  • Today at 04:53:28 PM Be4u: SWs going all Antifa on us, watch!
  • Today at 05:54:09 PM Steve Wood: You can get paid for that!
  • Today at 06:22:23 PM Be4u: Don't get me started, trying not no be assassinated over here.
