Seems the Earth's gravitational pull is quite a bit more on the drivers side than the passenger!!

I fullfilled the last installment of the story of the CBR front suspension, for an upcoming story. Test driver Jason Scudilari really knows how to drive a car to the point of its threshhold. You'd think it unnerving to watch from the sidelines, but it was actually quite exciting to see the car running the slalom course.

cool pics, in the second one you can see the gash in the drivers door.
when we bought our 70 c10 it had almost the same exact gash.

Well I could not hold out till the magazine tech article so here are the results from the before and after testing of the Church Boys Racing r/p conversion.

Before: 7.59 = 37.73mph
After: 7.09 = 40.39mph
+ 2.66mph

I myself have never been involved with this type of testing so I wasn't sure how those numbers stacked up, so I asked and this was the reply that I received from Super Chevy............

"............On my 83 Camaro, I installed new Hotchkis control arms, sway bars, springs and Tokico adjustable shocks as well as 17" X 10" Nitto 555 tires (upgraded from 8" X 15") and it picked up just a taste over 2 mph......."

The kit in which we installed consisted of the Church Boys Racing tubular lower control arms, tubular crossmember with manual rack/pinion, the "Church Bar" (sway bar), our billet steel steering arms and an Ididit steering column.
So hopfully sooner than later we will get to read all about this in Super Chevy magazine.

............not sure where the photos went?
