yeah last week, you can look at his feed backs when he started selling them he was averaging one good feedback a day.

everyones happy.

more power to him.

I thought of buying it, since its surely not copyrited, and he just emails it to you. then listing it for sale for .01 on ebay.

I went the Nova lower route on a metric Malibu-------big waste of time and $! I never was able to get camber gain and toe change even close.

I agree with the first post. If all parts were listed by # and gave instructions for bumpsteer corrections, well then!
I know you mod guys have some of this down pat but most of us are still workin it out.
And even though there are 1000 post, I haven't seen any two with the same parts and
set up recommendations. then when you start withbump, ackerman, moment center and c.g. etc, it do get hairy! By the way why doesn't someone with
this specific knowledge go ahead and post it
here: basic metric chassis required, no frame mods allowed/metric spindles, nova lowers
I THINK ITS A GOOD DARE, HUH!

I don't like building metric cars without the nova lowers. Cars have won 2 sportsman championships, 1 modified championship and a couple rookie of the year honors. Don't have any of the problems others post on here. The sportsman cars use metric spindles and the mod uses pinto. The way I see it, if you can get every last bit of speed out of your car use it, if not don't spend the extra money it will cost because it does add up. Was the amount of time it took to figure it all out worth it? You tell me, the 6 cars that I built with nova lowers have won over 60 features with 6 different drivers in the last 5 years.

Nova lowers on metrics arent legal in IMCA stocks or hobbys.

6 cars and 60 wins in 5 years, is only 2 per car per year!!!!

Whats a IMCA stock? we don't have those around here. LOL Besides didn't know we were restricted to just discussing IMCA stuff. Maybe I should have been more exact on the number. I'll add em up and post em on my web site www.extremeracecars.com just for you dirtrace

well nova lowers and hub adapters will pretty much do that close, but then the bump steer is really bad and the only way to fix it is to get a gauge and mess with it on your car.
but i can not remember right but the nova lowres give you 1.5 inch per side and the 1 inch longer wheelbase, then the spindle savers are 1 inch think i think so that gives you 4 inches other than that a different spindle might be able to sqeeze some more out. i dont know what else you could really do.
but i would not waste my money it would be a waste of time probally and never work right.

How does a spindle saver, that is 1/8th of an inch and goes from the top of the lower ball joint to the top of the steering arm on the spindle to prevent a metric arm from bending, add any width to a car????

Hey I don't like hearing this is a big waste of time, I am in the process now. However What is the reason for using the pinto spindles instead of metrics? What about big metrics impala,etc???

What you mean illegal???
