    slc sway bars

    Thanks for the picture Scott. my intent is to mount it further away [forward from the foot box] so I can get a better angle to the control arm. We have always used speedways arms and bars and the rating of the bars is pretty simple with twist of the bar to length of the arm from the axis in...

    slc sway bars

    Howard it seems you have put a lot of time with yours on the track, are you suspension alignment specs in your build log? I followed it but don't remember. I remember you talking about increasing your spring rates due to compression at higher speeds but don't remember if you scaled the car or...

    slc sway bars

    Thanks for your responses, I am on the right track [no pun intended] I will be using speedway engineering bars like I normally do and will start on the soft side for fine tuning.

    Camber advice please ( RCR40 ).

    I have cut more threads on the chevy tie rod / upper ball joint to allow it to seat completely in the upper control arm this will give you more depth, I have seen quite a difference depending on manufacture on the threads. The set up goes negative camber very quickly from that level set up with...

    Fire Extinguisher Plumbed Into Cockpit

    I am not sure that Halon is illegal to use or have, I don't think so as we still use it in the fire service.
