Re: Pro Street Trucks/Cars pics!!! im in love with the fatty tires!!

One of my favorites



but right now it sorta looks like this......


and


Just waiting on parts and the time to get this metamorphosis under way. Have been procrastinating on what to do about trans,,, If I change to a glide it adds a LOT of expense. I don't know if the Hughes TH350 is going to like what I'm doing,, and I have a pro-tree Hughes TH400 w/ shields all ready,, but will have to change driveshafts, and to use air will have to change shifters,,, bla bla,, every little detail justs keeps adding more and more $'s. Goal is to have it all ready before it get's hot so I don't have to wear a stinking firesuit to race this summer!!!

Marv is that the Holley pro Dominator? I Just picked one up for my 406. They must work well if you are running one.

Marv D,

I wanna see your Inner Fender Wells...
I have to do some Fabbing when I take the Engine out.
Did you buy or make yours?

Thanks,

68c10,,

yup

1bad62
Not really any good ones. This one from when it was a bottle baby, but it's not a great picture

I made them. There nothing but .065 aluminum I bought at a scrap place, Kept dinking with a template till I had it close, then went to a buddy's shop and borrowed his manual brake. Took them out back and sanded them in one direction with 600 grit sandpaper, then lightly with 1000, and shot them with clear. Over the years the poor ol truck has seen so many changes and reconfigurations that there pretty full of holes for mounting ignitions, fuel regulators and what not. I'll get some pictures when I pull the motor it will be a little clearer. But have to trim and fit the motor plate before I pull it, loose the side mounts, etc. Going to have to build my own headers it looks like. So this is going to be a slooooowwww build., to go no quicker than 11.5000001


Hottrucks,, those look to be MT Sportsmans. There a pretty stiff sidewall and depending oh how much the rear weight, 16-20 # might work. The hard compound is good for wear, but gave the WORST traction I ever saw in my truck. I went to a Hoosier Quick time 33x22.50-15 and picked up almost a 1/2 a second to the 60' cone over the Sportsman, ,,, same size and dropped psi to 12 at the track. Then moving to a Hoosier DOT QT Pro gave the best I've seen so far and I run 10.25# in them. All I can suggest is start HIGH and work down. Too low of a psi will cause the center of the tire to 'cup' and hurts traction, not help.

Re: Pro Street Trucks/Cars pics!!! im in love with the fatty tires!!

hey guys I was out working on E brake cable stuff (I need it for inspection) what are you guys doing to get around the large amout of back spacing on the wheels??

I'm thinking of moving the clip that holds the cable on the trailing arm to the frame or futher back on the arm making the cable dive into the trailing arm sooner??
