multi-tasking today... Corvette got latches






shocks came last week, waiting on the springs.edited PF1 had 450 lb springs, these will be 550


this is going away - it's funny, I spent a great deal of time trying to find this gear set (3.36s), now I've no need for it


this is what happens when you don't tighten the spring correctly

to whomever buys it, I'm sure it does.... I'm still working on the why-not-just make my own control arms.... I swear it's not going to happen (which pretty much guarantees it will) pull the body off the frame. it would make it a lot easier to simply make a new cradle, put the wheel face where I want it, solve the offset differential issue.... to that end, I'm likely buying some .120 wall 1" tube next week.

I've been messing with that suspension program that someone on here suggested - in my playing, I really like long arms because it keeps the tires more perpendicular to the road through suspension travel - not to mention less movement means less trouble controlling rebound (since everything stays close to the frame)... might end up being a bust, but it keeps me out of bars and I learn stuff - picture having indy-car-length control arms....
