    Wonder how he spun the tires that much, yet got almost no smoke? They must be Hurst slicks!

    I considered red, but didn't want two red gassers, even if they were different reds, or shades of red.
    I think the competition orange has more of a no nonsense race car, or gasser theme to it. I...

    With the 5 speed T45 you should get pretty good mileage when cruising at highway speeds. But of course you need to be steady cruising, vs. hot footing it to get the mileage. The T45 is just about at...

    Were the original door latches bad Mike, or do you just prefer the bear claw type? Nice work on them, and the bumper!

    Playing around with the car today, to see if I could squeeze the Hilborn stacks enough to fit on the top of my existing air cleaner. I made a new top out of 1/4" aluminum plate I had, so I wouldn't...

    My Chevy is 4.5" pattern and likely the same as your setup. But I'm pretty happy with the Torq Thrusts, so I'll pass Mike! Thanks anyway!

    If I was making this repair to the frame I'd start by reinforcing the top of the rail first. The top is likely the most solid part of the frame, so I'd tack a piece of 1.5"-2" box tubing across the...

    With those RWHP figures that's a very good flywheel HP number for a SBC. I'd guess it's getting up in the 450 hp range or maybe a bit more at the flywheel, which is darn good.

    I wasn't taking any chances Lash! I put it in the bottom of the box with the other base and sent it back. Didn't want to give them any reason not to fully refund my money.

    Wow! I didn't realize that anyone sold generic panels that type? That's a nice option for those of us without a bead roller!

    If you plan to drive it a lot, it's currently not set up to do so with ladder bars and leaf springs, and no floater brackets at the axle tubes. The springs will be in a bind with the ladder bars,...

    I'm down to two leafs on the Speedway axle front springs on my Austin gasser with SBC, and I could still remove one more and make it a single leaf. It's plenty firm with just two leafs.
