That chassis set with the enclosed pics and estimated speeds, looks to be a very well sorted out package. up

Car to share any of your set-up specs?

Careful, your face may freeze with that smile on it. Looks like it handles pretty well.
What size rear tire are you running?

Setup is pretty simple and cheap. Stock front suspension with Hotchkis 1.1 torsions and a Summit brand 1 1/8 sway bar. I did get a proper alignment with -1.0 Camber / 3.5 Caster / and toe'd in just a bit. Rear is HD springs, 1.0" blocks, and a 7/8" Summit rear sway set in the middle. I did swap to disc's in the front with EBC Yellows, but the rear still has the 11" drums. Added brake cooling too. The ride height is down from stock but I don't remeber the exact drop. Its super predictable and well manered.

Here's my tire wheel setup

Front Rim: 15x8, 4.5 bs

Front Tire: 245/60R15

Rear Rim: 15x10, 5.5 bs

Rear Tire: 295/50R15

These tires are roughly 26.5 in diameter front and rear for balance. I studied tire sizes over and over again and compromised with this setup to be safe. The tires are Mickey Thompson's Sportsman S/T's which have a treadwear rating of 440.




.......And Yes, I'm still smiling grin

Well that is as well balanced as the car looks. thumbs

Might as well ask what your drive train is.

Thanks, It really is a happy car. Nice thing is the car can go back to stock if I ever want to go back down that road.

Motor is a low compression 440 with a 6 pack. No bogging in the corners. 727 trans that unfortunately gets hot on very hot days but I’m working that out. 8 3/4 rear with 3:23’s. Typically gets into the mid 4K RPMs in the main straight. Best part of the car....still has the bench seat and factory seat belts. up

Looks like a lot of fun MoparMike23! And on a bench seat no less.
