I went down to jerrys at eagle fabracation
just got back.I have to say after looking
at and DRIVING the eagle 3 house car that
they have done their home work on this car.
The car is well built and light weight,lots
of trianglation.I hot laped the eagle 3
after the races it was pretty dry,i was amazed at the front end bite in this car
it was like i was on pavement.But the best part was the rear bite the whole car must
have raised up under power about 6 to 8 inches and would rocket down the straits.
Needless to say my new eagle 3 should be ready in 3 or 4 weeks.I would like to thank
jerry and the rest of the eagle crew for
making our visit very pleasent and informed.

We were glad to have Mike come join us this past weekend. It only took Mike a few laps to get used to the house car. Once he got used to that little Ford motor and the car, everything smoothed out and his lap times dropped dramatically.

Mike ran about 25-30 laps. After about 10 laps, you would have thought he had been driving the car all season. Great job Mike.

Mike,

A race car cannot go fast all by itself. It takes a driver, too.

I am still deciding on what rear suspension to run on my new car. Sounds like maybe the z-link is the way to go. I really think Jerry will help 100% no matter what rear I go with. The more I talk to Jerry the more confident I get with the upcoming next season. I think he really knows his stuff!

All,

We have cars running 3-links, Z-links, 4-Links, 4-link/Z-link combos, etc. We prefer the Z-link due to it's ease of adjustment and it seems to be the best of all worlds.

ANY suspension is adjustable to some degree. When you set down and really think about how a suspension affects the car, understanding it become easier. You just have to picture how it works in your mind.

I guess it's time to mount a mini-cam on the rear suspension of our cars to watch the dynamics of it. LOL I guess if NASCAR can do it, so can we. It's a thought.

Peddler,

I have a handle on a mini-cam that I am going to buy and use to test with in the off season. We are planning to build a special car in December that is TOTALLY universal. We have several projects in the works and the mini-cam will be a valuable asset to have.

I intend to study the dynamics of the car in every place I can mount the camera. I am always doing something "off the wall" like this. Seeing is believing.

Jerry
