Yeah same guy, he only wants 125 for the shaft that was put in right before that video. He's dropping a 3v motor in it right now so he's selling all of his pushrod stuff.
Wonder why he went 3v 4.6? Can't you guys get more HP outta the pushrod 302's?

The limits of each are pretty close, buts he's going after drivability and a little uniqueness.

That's cool. Does he get on Mustang Evolution? It would be cool to follow along with his progress.

Makes you wonder that on a real hard launch, the axle tube is getting more down force than back. But either way it looks sexy

Probably, but not the cover. I'm sure if I'm gonna beef up the housing or not yet. Those covers are 150$. But I know trojan already has the cover and is gonna fab his own bracing.

I bought this one at BestBuy for 20$. It's pretty sturdy and the suction cup seems strong. It's kinda bulky, but it's also made for mp3 players too. It also has a mount for a bike. I wanted this one for the clamp for the bike to possibly make my own setup down the road.

He's actually mostly stock like me. I know he has shorties, x-pipe, flows, gt40 upper lower intake and heads, don't think he has a cam other than stock. He actually ran it at the track with 3.55s and was told by a couple people it ran a 13.00 flat with slicks.

Oooo, that's why slicks and drag radials scare the hot biscuits out of me.

Don't be scared. Just be preventive, these things are easily avoidable with regular visual maintenance and good bracing... But without you will expierience a lot of detonation.

What they are trying to prevent is axle tube twisting. I'm thinking that, coupled with the braces off the LPW Ultimate cover and welding the tubes to the center section should provide a pretty stout 8.8 rear end.

That energy transfers somewhere. I wonder if how it's constructed takes the energy to a stronger area or dissipates it over a large area. I haven't had a beer yet.

It keeps it more rigid and transfers the power through the tires to the ground.

i forgot to ask this earlier. my tire guy (father inlaw p) says his boss wont let them mount tubes. but anyways no biggie. i called discount tire which is a very large tire place, told me that you shouldnt mount tubes in slicks. i told him that everyone does this. then he was like well as long as the tire says for tubes. so my question is:

my tires dont say tubes or tubeless on them. are they ok. from everything i have read during lots of tire/slicks research. many people are running tubes. i also have ran into many forum where people recomended tubes to others with worrying what the tire said. i recieved my tubes today and will be mounting them soon. am i ok?

Do ppl generally do this for a little extra insurance or because they run their slicks a little past their "good by" date?

I'm going for insurance. I have a damaged one ,but they are brand new.

It just sparked my curiousity of what's the difference in the tire for it to accept tubes or not. I just want to make sure I can even run tubes in these slicks. And I'm having trouble finding more info on my tires online to verify.

You know, the only thing I could think of is if someone were to over-inflate the tube, maybe this could make some slick tend to dis-mount...? That's a guess though.

I would run them, especially since you have a damaged tire, but the choice is ultimately yours.

I would think an issue might be spinnin the rim in the tire would probably rip the valve stem out..but I would still want a tube in this situation.

Yes, that is an issue and you should always screw the tires to the rims to prevent that and even without a tube it's a good idea.

Thanx for the link.

And thanx everyone else for the small chat. It helps me feel better about what I'm doing.

One more thing. I'm thinking I should drill my rim for the screws before I mount the slick. I still have the other slicks on the rims. But I can go get those dismounted, take rims home and drill then, take back to tire shop to mount. Because I want to predrill the rim so I don't go to deep into the tire. And I'm thinking the little bit that the screws will go into the tire will not require predrilling.

Also, I'm thinking just some standard sheet metal screws will suffice?

Yes pre-drill and chamfer the holes in the rim on both sides.


No, standard sheet metal screws are not suitable, as they are considerably weaker than the screws intended for the purpose. However it's your choice.
Wheel Rim Screws


You should pre-drill the tire beads too so you don't "force" the screw through the bead possibly separating the layers of rubber, nylon and/or steel cords.


Set up a drill bit with a "stop" such as a layer of tape wrapped around the bit so you do not drill to deep.
