When you need new (quality) axles, how do you measure for them? While it sounds simple enough, more than one person has made a critical error when it came to axle dimensions. And in most cases, once you have them, you have them. But we have a foolproof method for measuring for axles.
Part III of this series on axles looks at at the flange, housing ends and lightweight options for better racing and peformance.
Axles? What’s the big deal? Once you see a racecar that just pitched a wheel (most often with a chunk of the axle attached), you get a far better understanding of why axles are critical. Learn more about them in the first of this four part series.
Getting a handle on exhaust speed is extremely important (exhaust speed is the determined by the diameter and length of the primary pipe). But it’s the not only critical component in a header.
Drag Race 101: Headers, Part II. We look at the effect of wave scavenging on header configuration.
To come full circle as we build our LS engine, we run the engine through a computer simulated dyno to test its effectiveness on the strip.
In the last segment of our hypothetical LS motor build; we picked the parts for the top end. This time we have to “contain” the carnage with the bottom end of the motor.
