Looks great. I can't get over how light his steering wheel is. I need to get one.

Who will be driving the truck down the hill when you leave?

Yes the steering wheel is light. It is also nice size and comfortable for a race wheel.

Got some new beadlocks for the rear. They were crazy cheap so I just got them instead of getting the ones I had done.

Tearing it down for paint. Dropping it off tomorrow the get the strut towers and firewall painted white. The bars will all be metallic silver like the inside. The 25.5 cage will be re-sprayed and the new seat brackets, steering column, fast dash bracket will be black.




Floors going to be sprayed too.

With the stock block, crank, heads motor 4.90's. With the dart block motor 4.60's. On e85 driving it to the track. I will be mostly on no prep tracks and the the local tracks are slick. So, 5.60's on the locals would be good.

What tires you gonna race on?

I might run 315s, if so, might make sense for me to run a 4.10...

29.5 TT5 stiff wall slick. They work great on a non prepped surface and can recover if you spin. I Will be running a 4.10 gear with a 1.4 second gear in the t400
