I just ran it down the street and back.....about 20 times

it was sooo funny... it was actually quiet... My engine got to about 230 and it was pretty fast on the low end.... but I am not sure about the top end since I can not open it up on the street (not paved yet). I have to make one mod to it tonight and it might be interesting to see it run this weekend.... If this legal by the way????

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?

Thanks NTC3NUT

I need to go to Home Depot and get some Copper Pipe to make the top stretch that conenctes to the Header a little longer... It fell out while driving it. Other then that I think this should work. The Race this weekend by me is ROAR Rules Apply.... I will probably have to put the other pipe on for it.

Did you guys see the crazy pipe this guys offering on Ebay? I know were not supposed to post Ebay links, but please make an exception in this case, it's for entertainment purposes only!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=1768211184

What do you guys think? Is it worth me wasting $20 just to see it in person?

It's definitely "outlaw" - it's not ROAR legal - the exhaust tube is way too big and in the wrong place. . .

I wonder what the pressure wave does with it. . .usually the shape is designed to work with the pressure waves that the motor creates.
