Hey Guys,

I gotta pinto, not sure what year. Anyways, I put a brand new AFCO racing radiator in it. and after every night of racing the radiator is bent a little more. I am sure body flex is causing it. How do I keep that from happening? Well now after 5 nights of races I think it is not going to bend anymore, it looks the same last weekend as after the weekend b4. Thanks guys

im gonna be in front someday

Do you run a front loop with down bars to the frame rails? This will help tie in the front and add streingth. You may want to plate by the motor mounts as well

BTW, since you are allowed other than stock, I would have saved the money on the rad and got a Taurus rad with the fan out of wrecking yard for less than half the price.
