Re: Clifford the Big Red Truck~~The Build

Having a good time with the truck. Last two events were LS Fest in Kentucky and an SCCA event at the old Blytheville AFB here in Arkansas. We were racing in standing water 1/2 to 1 inch deep, and the truck def performed well.

The truck is a real beast and is a blast to drive. After LS Fest we decided to get a set of the "Attack" style wheels from Rocket Racing Wheels. 18x9 and 18x10's. Also, put on a set of Bridgestone RE-71R tires. Adjusted on the front alignment as well. 1.5 inches of neg camber, 6 degrees of neg caster and 1/16th of an inch toe out. The ole truck really handles now.

Absolutely love the 6-speed with the LS. The truck is an absolute beast. Will most likely put a different shifter arm on it. To bring it more towards the driver.

Rearend is a 3.42 ratio. I have a rear tire just under 26 inches tall, so at 75 Im doing just about 2K rpm's.

Driveshaft and slip yoke work as advertised my friend. The whole system works great. I did have to switch to a 3/4 bore master cylinder to be able to move the slave cylinder.

Re: Clifford the Big Red Truck~~The Build

Just read this whole thread after seeing your post in the LSX swapper thread. This thing is awesome! I have a black ‘77 that I need to do this to!

My mom’s entire family is from the Beebe/Garner area. My uncle is Roger Lynch, he’s a senator there...a gun toting senator
