Re: Taking a Beretta shell and building a chassis

For a drag car there front end setup would be great (didnt see it listed anymore tho). Looked like it would be a very limited for front tire room to me, just going off the pictures I saw when I was looking into front suspension.

Re: Taking a Beretta shell and building a chassis

Yeah im just doing a standard t56 setup, factory looking body panels for a "stock look". Only advice I have is set a time frame goal. Expect to tripple it. But.. if you can dream it, and want it bad enough, it can happen. Takes a ton of planning, work, and thought. Drag cars have different...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Decided to only get the front and rear sections bent up. Worked on it all weekend and have the passenger side frame rail tacked in (center section). Ran out of steel or the other side would be in also! Im having issues getting my bends made up tho. Send in my final drawing, tell them im ready, the g...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Well yeah, But now that I have measurements of exactly where the frame is going, and im starting over.. why not have some pieces bent for a much better end result? Its looking like It will be bent in 3 sections, then Ill weld those together and make it all work. But.. I am undecided on one bend.. I ...

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Bored waiting from class to start so I thought I'd update real quick. I'll post pictures at some point, but it's all changing. I got one frame rail done and ready to go inside the passenger compartment. The other side is ready, but the car isn't cut to accept it yet. Going through the firewall, I fo...

Re: New strut - b.o.o.b.

I was fairly worried, but going on 3 or so years with them and zero issues. Different application, but thought id share. Kybs did always seemed to have some good pressure be...
