    Jeg's Torque Arm

    I have been looking at the Jeg's Torque Arm. My car is primarily going to be a track car with occasional Saturday night street use. I was looking at the Jeg's kit because of it being shorter then stock which will help plant the tires. I was looking at the pictures and it looks like the saddle mounts to the top tunnel and the pivot points down which is opposite from some of the other tunnel mount TA I've been looking at. The Jeg's kit looks like it would free up space for true dual or even larger ehaust tube diam. Has anyone used it or know of anyone using it?

    I had one on my 82 blown berlinetta. It worked great and is still working great almost 11 years later. It was a bit of a pita to install but it was worth it. I have pulled the wheels about three inches off the ground several times with out a problem. Only thing is to keep the slide joint greased with good grease.
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust

    As long as it's adjustable for pinion angle and it mounts off of the back of the tranny (body mount) it'll be superior to the stocker...

    I cant remember if its adjustable or not but its about a foot or so short of the trans. It has a plate that goes up in the trans tunnel and bolts through the floor. < that was the hard part bolting it through the floor.

    I needed to have an adjustable TA as my car wheel hopped badly after the stall converter. You could feel the shudder in the drivers seat. Not good on the rear end. Right now it's set at a tad over -2 degrees and hooks great. AAMOF, it hooks so good (dead hook out of the hole - no wheel spin with the MT's after heating them up - get's me 1.7x 60's - I know there is a 1.6x in there somewhere) that I burned up the pinion bearing on the last set of gears.

    Bonus points if you know the origin of that quote...

    I think you can get the Jeg's arm adjustable or non-adjustable so defiantly make sure you go with an adjustable items.

    They seem to work well, the downfall is the installation like mentioned above. It requires 12-15 holes (can't remember exactly) to be drilled in the floor and installed from inside the car.
