Hey guys,,,Just wanted to let you now how well we did last night...Made one slight adjustment to your set up Wilson and went up to a 25 lb heavier spring on the R front and the car just took off...Started deep in the field(20th)got punted in the left front in the first lap and caved the cowl down onto the header...Looked like crud but our driver could go anywhere on the track and pass...finished 3rd.. I can tell you the we had some very surprised big dollar dudes shaking there heads

Thats awsome dbadley. I'm glad I could help. I when to Accord and the car was way too tight. Had used tires should have bought new tires. Engine was braking up also so the R&D may be done for this year if anything major with it.

not bad, does it come with radiator,motor plate,bell housing,torque plates,torsion arms. Make shure you get all the little things even if they are bent. This way you know what you need. All the little stuff ads up quick.

On Saturday night the flying coil-over got the front end totaled...pushed everything back into the radiator...running 4th at the time...so much for the top 10 in points unless we can put something together in a hurry...I think our driver will still be rookie of the year Looking for a good 1/4 mile flat with slightly progressive banked set-up for a 2000 or older Bicknell(1.groove is flat...2 groove @5-7%...3rd groove 7-10% with a berm usually...looking for both tacky and dry slick..

We are looking for one right now...the price must be right because we have to freshen our motor this winter also..We just lost a ton of bucks with the crash...can't sell much off the old one
