    I made some changes to the car before the CHRR. The front wheels are American Racing magnesium LeMans 15x4's. The rears are single drilled Halibrand magnesium 16x13 Sprints with M&H Racemaster 13.00-16 slicks.

    The slicks are made for the Nostalgia Top Fuel guys, so the sidewall may not be ideal for a heavier door car. The car hooked pretty well on Saturday, but the 60ft's were off. I think it spun when the front wheels came down. It went 9.77 @ 133MPH.

    I also added the blue windows and a Superior blue metal flake steering wheel.

    That looks very wicked. Has the paperwork to backup the look too.
    Don't You have like a shit ton of mags? I'm kinda surprised you didn't have some halibrands on it before now. It looks great.

    I've always dug your car Jim and it just keeps getting better. The straight axle tech was right on and now the blue plexi with M&H's is just sick. Great car!!
