I don't know if you already know or not but here is a trick I learned from a friend. If you go to the yard and look for a 69'nova, they have aluminum drums. There were also some older monte's that came with them and Im sure more. Check with the people at the yard to see what will fit or bring along a magnet. The aluminum will save you a lot of rotating weight in the rear end, thus increasing your speed.
