I hope you have C-Clip eliminators on those rear axles . It would be a shame to mess up that beautiful body on the 65 :shock:

Yeah, I have c-clips on her....so do you know the wheel offset I can use to get that 9X28.5 to fit?

I believe i had 5" offsets 8" weld wheels and they cleared the drum brakes, it's been a long time ago, over 20 yrs. ago.

Hey Carl,
Now that's awesome I'll bet with some decent weather and some more dialing in you'll be in the low to mid 12's. You'll pick up the 60 ft times when you get it to hook. Sounds like you were focused on bracket racing. You did good Carl. Glad to see you having fun.
