Something a little different

Post  4thHorseman on October 14th 2015, 12:06 pm

Hot Rod Rumble 2015 Albuquerque, NM

Ran 10.20 @ 132mph with a 1.48 short time - uncorrected at 6500' DA on the 7psi blower only. It was twisting up hard with the new ladder bar/straight axle setup so I'm planning to add an ARB before opening the bottle and letting it eat.  With the small nos shot I'd expect another .8  but with it leaving how it was I'd have risked bouncing off the jersey barriers.  Sorting it out.  Sure was fun.

Is there an anti roll bar on the rear axle?

Could hide a wolf racecraft assembly up in the rumble seat area, and kill a bunch of that twist.....

There used to be an ARB on the previous 9". I broke that 9" housing into 3 completely separate pieces (ripped off axle tubes at factory housing welds) earlier this year and the ARB died in the process. That was a fun night. clown Stood the car up straight and high. Then BOOM!

New 9" housing is properly braced and I'm fixing to put an ARB on it this week. It has to be differential housing mounted due to tight available space.
