Yeah I don't know how functional it would be to race but it sure looks the part. Actually the 4-link geometry looks good so...

I'll bet it would be a handful! I'd sure love to find out...LOL.

Go here and sign up for an account, then it will ask you if you want to upload pics or movies. You have to have the oics stored to you computer, after you upload the pics save to libary, it will then give you severl codes to pick from, copy the image code and copy and paste the RJ and the pic will pop up.

On the vette subject, they look good but i'll guatentee they won't handle. When i first built my 56 T'bird with a blown 365" chevy in 1964, i put a straight monoleaf axle front end in it. The car in those days only ran 10.60/10.70 @131 MPH. It skated so bad i was off of it more than on it, over the winther it 1965 i built a VW front end and put it under the car. It immediately went almost 4 ths faster and as fast as [email protected] MPH and ran straigh as a bullit, and set a National record in Aug. 1966, with 10.50 X 30" M&H slicks.

Those cars are pretty but ill handlers down the qtr. mile.

Zip.

Maybe in 1964 but not today. I just finished a '66 Chevy II with a straight axle & it drove, handled and raced just fine. Actually it drove a whole lot better than the original '66 front suspension did (I know that's not saying a lot). The technology available today is very much advanced over what was available in 1964. I'm still considering a straight axle for my Corvette. :lol:
