I've been thinking of putting anchor chains on both sides of the block on the front to the sub frame, that way you would have the best of both worlds. Would that be legal?

The Glen is a must do track, did it in 2014, its a cross between Mid-O and RA. ( have yet to go to VIR ) Elevation changes are challenging and better know your braking zones too, excellent brakes are a must. Its a high RPM track. Well worth the drive, beautiful area to bring and explore with your si...

The car looks flawless, and how do you ever keep the garage so clean? You must have lost track of the hours invested so far. Personally, I would save the Camaro and drive the Audi on track :-) Nice job John.

Dave says, Again the whole point of the class is to keep it simple and cost effective. This closes a loop hole for spending big money to gain an advantage. In a way, cost is relative. I do 99% of all work myself as someone else may elect to farm it out driving up their costs that way. Do you put you...

Sure is a lot of theory and not a lot of facts here. And I could care less about the suspension - this is about the contact situation. You were far back - not in my car with my view point. Some more of the facts, being directly behind the incident in one of the 'much slower' cars, 2nd car carrying t...

I AGREE THAT HELPING NEW COMERS WOULD BE THE BIGGEST HELP TO KEEP THEM FROM LEAVING AS SOON AS THEY START, IF ITS TECH HELP OR LOCATING EQUIPMENT. IM SURE NEW PROSPECTS MANY THINK THE CARS ARE GETTING TOO OLD AND DATED, CONVEYING TO OTHERS THAT PARTS ARE CHEAP AND PLENTIFUL MIGHT BE A PRIORITY, CRAT...

Technical Question

Going over the car (89 bird) with 1998-2002 front brakes and 1/2" wheel spacers there is still fender/wheel rub at the bottom of the fender and tire. Using the stock GTA wheels I loose no less than 25% of turning radius because of the rub. The stock A-arms are on the car as is the cross member ...

Todd, actually over the last 20 years I've owned more Fords then anything else so, I was not 'ragging' on them, I'm not that insensitive. :lol: Thanks for the heads up where you will be, I'll keep an eye out.
