The Bogart's do. 100 thou clearance between caliper and rim. BIG $$$ for the rims though. Pumpkin will fly this year at Friday Night Street Legals.

Now I will have to knock those siily weights of the front calipers. That puts the second set of RS wheels and DR's up for sale. Just waht you need.

If you blow Pumpkin, be careful, don't burn the lips... SSOOCH may have some helpful hints...


I guess the RS wheels are 20 inch, what size are the drag radials..

Yep! It's not a contest. Just too good of a deal to pass up and besides they were on the wish list.

Off to the alignment shop

Today was the day to go to the alignment shop. As much as I hate driving Pumpkin in the rain, had to do it. Set a little different then stock spec's, should get in and out of corners a little better.

Do to wet roads the day I took Pumpkin to the alignment shop not much of a chance to get on it. That being said I did not notice any significant extra road noise while driving Pumpkin. The ride felt solid, but still smooth. All in all I am very happy with the overall ride and feel of the BMR suspension up-grade. Love the new stance, what a difference. Can't wait to get on it.

Next week one piece driveshaft install (Driveshaft Shop supplied) and BMR end links. As well clutch resivoir and catch can installation.

Do I remember correctly that you installed the solid sub frame bushings, or am I remembering someone else...

Looks like he has the Pedders sub frame bushings not the Pfadt solid bushings.

Some sharp folks on here... My question was going to be if you had the Pfadt solid bushings, did it make it much noisier...

Corey told me today that there is a pile of parts big enough to make a grown man cry... All he has left to order is the clutch...

Two friends of mine are going up there to have a set of cutouts put on one of the cars... They will get any pics if there are any worth taking...
