I tore the panhard rod and support out of my car. Eric repaired the frame rail and installed a new custom wishbone, looks KILLER!!!! He also replaced my anti roll bar that was letting the car twist like a pretzel!!
He installed a custom ARB that he makes.
I'll get the car out this weekend and see what it will do!! Forgot my phone at work I'll post some pics tomorrow.
Eric is the man!!!:)

Now just a little tune-up on that boost, spread the wings, and we will have lift-off!
We are happy to be of assistance on the Murder Bird... LSX Drag Radial is gonna be a good time :burn:

Eric do you have pics handy?
08-10-2012, 01:34 PM
here ya go...
comparing the bar that was on the car and the material we used for the new setup. Huge difference here- no wonder the car was rolling over when the boost was coming on! Anti-roll and wishbone are both custom parts. ARB features a bolt-in design and uses sealed needle bearings for bind-free operation. Wishbone is fully adjustable and uses high-misalignment FK brand heim joints with teflon liners... and weighs less than the panhard bar!
pics from under the car showing the custom wishbone replacing the panhard bar and new ARB installed
Andy's car was already going sub 1.2 60's with it hurt... This is gonna get interesting now!

Looks great and MWC is top notch.
08-10-2012, 04:15 PM
Hell yeah! Looks fucking killer!!! That car is already a beast, cant wait to see what it does when its not injured!

Looks great. Is that's old ARB the bolt on one the puts the PHR behind the stock spot
08-10-2012, 05:20 PM

Going to Byon tomorrow with slicks on. Haven't been on slicks in yrs, lol. The next race won't let me run the drag radials so I'm on a 29.5". Hopefully I have my boost controller issue figured out (losing boost). I really want to find out what this car is made of!!!
I'm finishing up the car today and loading it up.

Ran my fastest 1/8th mile time yesterday. Can't give times until Sunday. Racing in a grudge event Saturday. I will update Sunday. It only took four hits with brand new slicks, which my car hasn't been on in over two years, to run my best et ever! Chassis feels great!! Can't wait to put the radials back on!!!!!!

Congrats! I just got off the phone with Eric and he is a stand up guy and makes top notch parts and is ALWAYS willing to help.
Better 60 as well?

Just another reason why MWC is always your best choice. Not just a person grabbing parts off a shelf and mailing them out. Eric designs, builds, and tests these components for a complete 360 degree customer service experience.

Ran another new best last Saturday. 4.75 @ 160 in the 1/8th.the more MWC parts I get on the car the faster it goes! I can't wait to get all of his suspension components on the car, that will be over the winter.
We have one more race to win first!
We need a few repairs on body afer running at 3 am with dew on the track at 43 deg!
But that's another story.

Some great performance for sure, and now with a few tricks coming we will get you contending for that top spot every race. Glad to be associated with the LASTLS1 race team!
Andy will be needing ballast now to make race weight so if anyone has some extra laying around send it his way!
