Mike, Here's a copy of an earlier post of mine reguarding the rear toe mods:
They are running Nitro Shoes, 40 front/40 rear, 28mm front/30mm rear. Travis's car was the only one with a set-up similar to the books, the rest of the cars where set-up like they where for the Nat's. The toe-links where newly made. Bill Easton gave me this info:
-tie rods longer than stock (did not specify), with freshly cut threads, they did not roll the threads to make them smoother like the stock/factory team tie rods, more bite this way
-not lock nuts, just standard nuts, but all 4 also freshly
drilled and tapped, 2 with reverse threads of course
-drilled and tapped all 4 of the 6/32 ballends to accept
2/56 buttonhead screws, then slotted the stock ball cups
to allow proper up/down travel
I know it seems like alot of work, but if they where all using it
that must be the way to go (I guess we'll see, right?). I'll drop you a quick note tomorrow on the dual chamber mod.
I think you could easily duplicate it with a set of longer Lunsford tie rods, and a good set of captured ball ends. If the tie rods where just long enough to "bottom out" you may not even need the nuts. What do you think? I'll go out and get the different length tie rods, but my LHS is out of quality captured ends (I've already been checking into this). Anyone have a preferance for their captured ends? I've heard Serpents are good, what about Ofna or GS?
