    I keep the fronts both on 1,the left rear 6, and the right rear on 7. Due to launch twist. I also installed the anti roll bar that replaces the rear sway bar.

    Thank you. I don't have the anti roll yet but hopefully it won't be too bad. I don't think I'm going to be practically standing like you are

    Just take the fronts up to like 7 or 8... You'll be able to tell when driving on a dippy road. If you leave them soft ( #1 ) you will bottom out the front. That hurts the ol feelings !!! Are yours QA1 ro QA1R ???

    Sounds Excellent ! Do you have a set of drag tires for the back ? I run the M/T Drad Radials with 21 lbs of air presure & very pleased with them. Those QA1's are realy going to help your weight transfer !!!

    I have Centerline ConvoPros Front & Rear and Run 26" MT Slicks in back and 26" Mickey Sportsman 4" wide in Front. I've been running on these for about 9months. I really like them. The Convo Pros were a Valentines present from my Hubby last year. Gotta luv my Hubby for puttin up with me.

    I just found the speed shop photo of the car !!! Looks Good !!! I also run the convo pros & know how much grinding off the brake calipers you went through ! If you get a chance, try the radials. They are heavier, but your 60' will improve alot. I'm hitting mine with a 4600 stall & 4.10 gears. Stock cubic inch motor & 150 dry shot. Alot of bolt ons. High 10's!!!

    Yeah I really like the convo pros. I was runnin Weld's they sux. So you think the slicks are slowing me down? I have another Monkey on my back I gotta worry about. I've broken the rear 2+ times. Right now theres an Eaton Pro and Richmond 3.73's but it's not too much longer for this 10 bolt. Did you change the rear to a Moser?

    Thanks 4 the help.

    After the 4'th time I blew the rear, I did go with the moser with the spool. I kinda wish I went with the posi unit because the spool drags the tires around turns. If you go that rout, you will want to add the adjustable control arms. The moser didn't bolt up centered. I couldn't bolt my 28" tires on until I adjusted the rear end forward. But, It is bullit proof !!!

    Yeah already decided on the posi. I'll be running 26" so maybe I won't have that prob. I run mosly 1/8th mile 28" slow me down in that short a run.
