    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    Hector for critical bolts you may want to look into Nordloc washers. I’ve been wrenching for 50 years and am genuinely impressed by how effective they are. One spot that was always a sore point on the Dirt late model I was crew chief for was the header bolts. These were the only things that...

    SLC 001 Build

    I like how Mason threw in the ground reflection. How about topping it off with gold wheels?

    Front tire poke at zero toe and zero camber

    Back in 2009 I attended a World Class Driving 200mph Extreme challenge in Uvalde Texas. The event was at the Continental/General tire tire test track. If you Google earth Uvalde Texas you'll notice a large oval outside of town. It is an eight mile concrete oval surrounded by various other tire...

    Ken's SLC build thread

    I’m also at this point and was wondering about the cutouts. I’m going to make similar plates but because I have power openers the lower portions are cut out. In order to strengthen the door in that area I’m going to fiberglass the inner section filling the void and use that to bond the plates in...

    SLC Bump Steer Spacers

    Thanks Howard. I already have a string set up and a straight edge for under the car to square the set up. I purchased a digital angle meter that is very helpful. I was able to at least get the basic alignment close. I’ll spend this weekend fine tuning it. (At least when I’m not watching the...

    SLC Bump Steer Spacers

    Thanks Howard. I will check it this way. My question is about what size upper and lower spacers did you end up with. I am puzzled at the way the car was shipped with seemingly custom made spacers that when the rear tie rod was compared to the lower control arm angle was way off. Does the about...

    SLC Bump Steer Spacers

    I recently aligned my car including successfully setting the frt bump steer. Using a 1 inch steel spacer as I have read in some posts got me within .05 of a degree in the frt. The rear is a different story. My car does have the the double shear set up. The car came with a longer lower spacer and...

    Lubricating Control Arm Rod Ends

    That is correct. The ball should never move or rotate. Google grade 8 bolts torques and get a chart to properly torque to spec.

    Need some help calculating serpentine belt length

    Sometimes I've seen quite a bit of bounce at the tensioner from the combined out of roundness of the driven pulleys ( there are no perfect circles or straight lines in the universe, but we come damn close). Other engines I've witnessed had virtually no tensioner ocillation ( almost perfect...

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    Welcome to the SLC family. One thing you may want to take into consideration is I was advised by Fran not to go over 500 hp with the G96-01 transaxle. I have one behind an LS 3 376/480.

    I am also using those mufflers , but I have them coming out the sides. I'm pleasantly surprised that they aren't excessively loud in that configuration. Apparently the cases are insulated and they don't get as hot as you would think.
