    That car is 100 kinds of cool!Are you planning to run C or D gas with it?It looks like a perfect weapon for one of those classes.
    Stay in close touch with Quain throughout your build,as he is a great guy who is super quick to help when you need a hand,and he will do everything he can to help you finish the car and soon as possible,and spend more time racin',and less time wrenchin'.:)

    Sorry for the delayed response... Yes Quain is probably getting tired of my questions to be honest lol.. I'm asking something different at least once a week.. I'm thinking d/gas starting off and to see how the car performs I'm running a standard bore small journal 327 so my cubes are small and car big lol

    Be sure to check your axle bearing ends to make sure they line up with the carrier bearings / spool after all the ladder bar brackets and welding is done. They usually have to be cut back off and re squared after all the welding.

    I don't ever have any luck with then staying in place. I have learned to just tack them the housing ends on until the final assembly then re square them.
