    Pull in right rear wheel, push out left rear wheel. Tricky part.... you can add stagger... How much? It's what the car needs and the radius of the turn. We push out the right front about 5/8's
    You have to hunt for the best line... Go slow to go fast, buzzing the tires to the moon isnt getting you moving any faster. USE the throttle. Sometimes we hit the tattle tale and it isn't over 6200 RPM when we normally run 72-7400.
    We do that and take out two rounds of wedge.

    We do this with a vintage car with metric chassis. Dry slick we're always up front. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6ZiOqlBPyA

    Hoosier A-40's The blue and yellow #12... we're getting closer. We have won a few features, when he either breaks or roasts an engine. He's got some pretty BIG engines.

    Vintage racing bodies Inc. Fiberglass... aluminum sides... tin inner panels.
    Good class to run hardly ::cough::: any beating and banging. Wheels take most of the abuse.
    Some nights it gets so rubbered down you hear the tires over the exhaust. That night it was dry slick with loose sand/clay on top. Like sliding down the hall with your socks on....

    sorry slightly off topic

    MoldyM - I prefer the looks of those bodies over the Speedway Motors vintage modified shell. Not finding much on a web search for Vintage racing bodies Inc., do you know if they have a website or any contact info? Thanks

    Thats my car that moldy helps me with. We have guys over in Panama City, Florida that makes these bodies. Their is a few different body styles that they make depending on what you like. The price for the bodies are around 600 dollars and include the nose piece, hood, and the main body. The doors are made from aluminum sheet metal. The bodies fit on metric chassis but the frame rails are cut out and replaced with 2 x 3 tubing and brought in closer to the centerline of the car. I tried to upload a pic of my chassis but the computers at work dont allow it.

    A contact number to call on the bodies are 850 785-1882

    Are they running V8's ? Those cars are cool looking. You say they're on a GM metric frame ?

    Yeap, we run 350s that are set back behind the front cross member. Pretty much just like a modified. We use the stock 4 link rearend with weight jacks and stock front syspension. We can replace the upper a-arms with tubular and run weight jacks and outboard shocks for a slight weight penalty. The wheel base is the same as a metric chassis with the exception of the width. The straight sections of the outer frames are cut off and replaced with squar tubing. Its a very fun class to race in.

    For a complete fiberglass body that fit the metric chassis checkout www.classicracingseries.com click on the "forms" look for body order form. They are available in 3 window, 5 window, and sedan style. They are bolt together for easy panel replacement.
