It would be a 68 to 72 Chevelle lower control arm.

I like it alot. The only track that I've been on and not been fast at is a super slick flat 1/2 mile. Reason being 1.) Never ran a 1/2 mile before. 2.) Left rear shock came apart in the inside and was bound up so that didn't help. Every where else I've been fast with alot of BITE! This is the first IMCA style mod that I had to take bite out of. If you have any other questions PM me! Again thanks for the info

Ya, We might be buying one in the next few weeks if all goes well with the money thing. Everybody we talked to really liked them too. The 06' cars are really cool looking with some neat features.

If you get one or want to talk to Randy or Mike at JR Motorsports tell them you talked to Tom Eiklor from New York. They'll hook you up! Ya the new 06's are nice, if money allows I might update this winter but like Randy told me if it's not broke why fix it. This is one of the qualities that I liked about Randy he didn't try to get me to spend money and they took good care of me at Boone.
Washeduptoo, They don't have a web site except the JR motorsports site but if you want to get in touch with them 1-866-816-4702 and ask for Randy Havilick and tell him Tom from NY gave you the num.

Tom, Their was a Dale Caswell from New York that was bad fast down in Boone this last year and i think that was a Victory. That car was the most pist-off sounding car there. WOW.. LOUD!!!

Ya Dale is my team mate. I beleave that was a 100 over 327 turning almost 8000! Dale run's a completly different set-up then the rest of us Victory car's, really good on a tacky track. Plus he's surrounded by race smart people meaning his dad very good with set-up's. I had the light blue and flourecent red num 44. Had good run's for the starting spot's I had but just couldn't get past 2nd to qualify. Oh well maybe next year!

44NYMOD,
How do you have it setup, 4/z or something else?

I would be interested in hearing more about the car we are in the market since we tore up our DW. We want to run 4 link so if that is how you have it setup let me know and I can PM if you want.

Ya that was me! Car was really fast on the bottom because it was alittle tight and could have passed him easy but I thought I had to move up a groove to pass and pushed just enough to give him the edge to win. Still kicking myself in the @ss over that car really felt good that night because no one else was running the bottom and if they were they weren't fast there. Oh well! Beleave it or not I only ran the car 9 times before the Nats. Third night out I won by half a track and the rest were 2nd and 3rd's. I was trying differnet thing's trying to learn how the car was reacting to different changes. What I liked best of this mod is going through tech at the Nats didn't have to worry about a thing from the chassic to the body, Tom told me he wished other car's were that easy to tech.
