    The 19” gm fan is an awesome piece for moving a TON of air. We didn’t notice any lack of power with our 358 limited motor (500ish hp) when switching to it from a 15” fan, but they sure are heavy!...

    Shhhhhhhhhhh! It’s all a secret! Lol. I’d say it’s a combination of things though. Though I’ve had good success wrenching on our late model, I consider myself pretty new (only graduated from stock...

    Driver new to late models? If so, that’s usually driver induced. There’s things you can do to help. What car, springs, bar locations, track configuration/surface conditions etc?

    Would I be correct in guessing this is probably what led to the first use of a LF travel limiter to keep it tied down? If not the first use, I’d say it would definitely be needed.

    Tri-Y headers are designed to be able to have the same, or better flow at high rpm due to more efficient design/scavenging, with the low end torque advantages of a smaller primary tube. Best of both...

    It probably depends a bit on the track, but we definitely had a very noticeable difference switching to tri-y headers on our 358 steel late model. Restarts are huge at our track, and I’d pay double...

    It just might be better. The new setups compromise some of the traction available through suspension as a trade-off for more aero traction. If we were allowed to go back to wedge bodies, (not that...

    Maybe I’m way behind on something, but what’s the theory on running the bars parallel? As the birdcage rotates they wouldn’t stay perfectly parallel anyway. Just trying to stay close?
