Default ANYBODY REMEMBER THIS OLD WHEELIE TRICK ?

I dont know why i thought about it today but there use to be a trick to help u pull the front tires off the ground,

had somthing to do with bolting a loose chain to the frame and then to the bottom controll arm (a frame),

anybody remember that trick or how they did it.

just a thought...lol

sounds like what off roaders do with limiting straps but they dont do it for wheels they do it to limit droop over rocks ect

Default limiter

I have a 1" nut welded into the top arms with a long 1" bolt . I can fine tune my front end travel to the track and car. Works great.!!!!If you have a race track that will not hook well,i can raise the limiters and get a little more weight transfer to the rear,or if the track is hooking great,i can bring it down a little for a better 60 foot time.
