  1. This was a t-top car. we removed the entire frame and rolled out a new roof pretty much. Our new car had a custom sunroof, we rolled and welded a section back in.
  2. they are only 25 points now. Speedway has the "do it yourself" kit
  3. I would think tire wear would be specific to the individual car, driver, racing surface, and about 100 other things. Some cars will take more tire outback.. So I guess you might get a longer life out of them.
  4. Just a hunch, I'd guess a tire designed for use on a FWD car might have a stiffer sidewall to distribute the weight???
  5. glad we run a SBC, they literally sell dozens of styles, with many options.
  6. we have a T-10, but it needs a rebuild, We do have the original intake and a non-electric Q-jet. It needs a rebuild I'm sure. I wish the E-Q-Jet would work, it is a good carb. We claim everything and still have 100 points. I wanted to run a small Holley DP carb, but one of our guys was a circle track guy and wants to try the 2bbl. I plan on brining a rebuilt Q-jet and a holley. I think the intake is spread bore thou. I don't fully understand the function of the electronic carb, I know it was for economy/emissions, I think it only operates under a certain RPM?? At tracks like NJMP we are in 3rd pretty much all the way around the track until we hit the straight. One teamate is an aerospace engineer that works for NASA, i'm sure he could figure something out
  7. we have a SBC circle track 350 that makes about 400hp with a 2bbl, would need a "refresh". Not sure what heads, they are a "spec" iron part. I'm guessing if we used stock 350 heads we could run it for the same amount of points as our 305. I liked our stock quadrobog, but we eliminated the computer so it won't work anymore. We are going to try a knock off air gap w/ a race Holley 2bbl.
  8. was that PintoDave? Black/Copper Gen IV Camaro?
  9. Oil pan for sure. We run one w/ no acusump or cooler. No issues. We shift at 5800. If your car stays cool don't waste the points on the rad. Once it is full of water there isn't much difference in weight. We are going to try and get to Daytona in the spring.
  10. ahhhhh I thought they were coil for some reason, or at least front strut.
  11. I was talking about front springs, not rear leaf.
  12. we run a 280/480 comp roller cam. The 84 engine had 9.5:1 the 88 is like 9.3:1 Not sure what the 350 get but we are burning about 10 gal/hr.
