Wheels/Slicks

Hey, that looks awesome. What size rubber are you running and what size wheel, offset, etc? I like how the rubber fills out the wheel well. Is your rear axle stock width? I bet your neighbors will go nuts when you break in the cam!:D

my current wheel is a 15x8 with 6" back space, slick is 29.5 x 10.5 (you will need a mini tub) I will be installing a 10" wheel real soon.

Now you could run a shorter tire say 26x10.5 on an 8 or 10" wheel with the right offset without a problem and without having to mini tub yours. I know several guys that run the short tire all you have to do to race it is have the right gear / converter and you can fly

Good to see you're back working on it again Phil!
Hey John when are you going to break that 8.99 mark

Well I have to many projects going and none of them are getting done, my 67 chassis car is almost ready for paint, Im going to Hutch's Transmission in canada tomorrow to pick up my glide for the 67.

I started restoring a 1971 Cutlass Supreme SX, 455

Been working on a mini chopper for my son with epilepsy in some spare time, actually teaching him how to bend and notch tube.

desided to pull the 72 out and try to get some races in this year

Looks like I may be going to Bowling Green next week with kevin to run NPS in the Pro Series.


Thanks a lot guys, everybody here has some great stuff, Im just glad to be a small part of a good group of people

It should run well into the 8's next time out, which would have been tonight if it wasn't for this pesky thing called RAIN... Arghh... Oh well, I'll have some new shocks to test now that I'll have another week to mess with it.

Sounds like you've got a lot of irons in the fire Phil! Hope you and Kevin have some good luck down in BG.

That thing is totally rad looking, can't wait to see the pics of the trunk. Keep up the good work. Also cool about your son and the chopper, bender and notcher thing. Started to teach my son how to weld last night. He did an absoulte killer job on some scrap, now all he want to do is weld/ fabricate.

bowtie0069 Are you aware there is no break-in required with a roller cam?
I'll second that. Your neighbours will love you because of the roller cam.
