Just found your site, looks great. I ran dragsters from 1974 till 2002. My wife got tired of "pushing me around" so I built a door car. Came to this site to learn more about setting up the rearend. Just read the tech article for Tiny Tires I and need to find the second article.


1980 Malibu, Viper Red, 3340# with driver. Originally 467 BBC that ran 10.44 at 7000 da. Just finished a 540 Dart install and have traction problems. Only have room for MT 29.5 X 10.5 tires. Did run 10.06 @ 127 and it felt GREAT!!! I have the stock style rear suspension: solid lowers, adjustable uppers, anti-roll bar and 50/50 shocks. I have ordered some QA1 adjustable shocks and ten inch 2 1/2" dia., 125# springs to get the back down a little more. Any help is appreciated. Ron
