Hey trojan. I remember you talking about that diff cover that you are gonna use to tie a brace to to support you axle housings.

Well summit racing sells a pretty heavy duty looking diff cover for cheap(40$). It was an old book but maybe you could use this?. I may think about it, but not sure that I need it.

Thank you for thinking of me, but I already have the LPW Ultimate support.
It has extra holes on the outside of the two you see in your photo for the braces to tie into.
All I'm lacking are the braces and hardware, which I will probably fab up myself if possible to save a few dollars. Some tubing and rod ends are basically all I need.

Thanks for looking out, I appreciate it.

For your car:
It will help support your rearend bearings and keep the housing from flexing so much, especially when you launch with slicks.
Definitely worth the price and effort to install.

So I know its probably not as good as the lpw. But do you think that just those 2 holes would be enough to benifit making supports out of.

Oh btw after I ordered the panel meter and it didn't show up for a few days. I looked at the tracking and realized I ordered straight from China. Dohh! So know I have to wait for a lengthy shipping period. I only checked feedback before I purchased and not location. Oh and I'm gonna put on my loop today. So I will have some photos later hopefully.

The holes in that girdle are for bearing support only.
It has no provisions to mount braces and unless you plan on doing a lot of drag racing, you probably can get by without them.


Oh crap! I hate it when that happens. Made in China is always scary, but usually their small electronics work ok. Just keep those away from your kids, please. After all of the horror stories about their manufacturing processes using toxic chemicals, I'm a lot paranoid about letting my grandkids come into contact with their goods.


I will eagerly await your installation pics.

Since I have to pack for my camping trip tonight I'm not gonna be able to finish her up. But I got everything cut,drilled, and primered. And everything is bolted up. The carriage bolts suck tightening with the lock nuts. I made the hole a press fit for the square part to go into. It will work just a pita. And I decided to weld the bracket to the sfc's. I do have some pics. And they are only sitting on the exhaust cause they aren't tight yet and welded.

Have fun camping.

I love it also. It gives that "all business" type of feel to it. I also hate when people over chrome stuff to. I don't need bling.

Which is how you got the custom username description.

Like you, I am or was always fabbing up something. Either because I thought it was to expensive to buy, I was broke at the time, or just for the pure challenge and joy of doing it myself.

P.S. In the process of possibly buying a golf cart that looks like a Dodge of some sort in the front.
You know I'll have to fix that and I'm studying up on high torque electric motors and HD deep cycle batteries.......... another "project" I really can't do right now, but I just can't help it.

That's exactly the reasons I do what I do.

High hp electric golf cart. Nice! It would probably be good to help you get around though. One day you'll be able to get back on the horse. I have faith.

Eventually I will for sure, but man this recovery is sure agonizingly slow.


Things are finally looking up a bit though.


I still want to get a few more things for the SC addition.
Keep your eye open for a good deal on an Innovators West Damper.
After much research it is the one I would like to use, but they are sure expensive.

I may have to go with a less expensive option, but I at least will need a steel damper to better withstand the pressure/forces of driving the SC.

What determines the weight you need your HB to be? I see this one is 50oz.
