Not at all. If I stop by the shop and take a picture of that area since my car is in the air.

I am looking at a set of four straps with the built in axle wrap from Mac's. Will it be ok to wrap around the front lca? Or should I go around the sub frame?

Sub frame. In general it's not a good idea to wrap straps around the suspension parts. They move which will looses the strap plus you can bend them.

Like this?

The picture of the door open with the Blue SS is before I built raised rails for the tires, now I can open the door.

In the fall spring and winter it is Negative in Virginia and other places on east coast. You would really stab someone then. I have been racing in -370 at about 45-50*, sometimes even at 60-70*

Ha, well, my motor isn't blown anymore!! It just came back from being balanced and torque honed. My bitch is almost back.

How does your car 60' so good? I'd stab someone for that 1.39. Hopefully that'll happen soon!

That's par for the course for your car in August though. 10.3 is nothing to be ashamed of.

haha, I could show you one that is 1.38 with a 10.200 pass earlier this year. If I could get it to hook a little better that 60ft. would improve, Maybe I need slicks. I have Farks upper control arm bushings and Pfadt trailing arms and rear tie rods. Pfadt diff bushings, LPW cover, JRE posi mod,3.45 gear and FTI 9.5 billet converter. And i guess the rest is technique. Allot different than Mud Racing with 36in tall bigger digger paddles, if only my Camaro hooked as good as my rail car, but I would most likely break my stock axles/diff.

Yeah yeah. I guess I'm stuck with these lousy 9 second time slips then.

I just changed out my entire suspension. I hoping for some 1.3's of my own.
