    El who hit you mustang ( hoopty's old car)

    So it begins... I started to get this car ready and hopefully will be racing it in a couple of months.. Yes this is Hoopty's old car...

    Installed the following
    1. Baseline prolaunch upper arms and locator
    2. Girdle cover
    3. Strange adjustable rear coil overs ( will see how these do tire clearence was a little close LOL) I will relocate to more to the center if Issues arise.
    4. Lokar throttle cable
    5. Carb throttle bracket
    6. Scott rod firewall blanks
    7. Relocated the Coil
    8. UPR manual brake set up with Wilwood adjustable poportional valve.. Saved some weight
    9. Flamming river manual rack belows
    I also ordered a full spool 31 spline, and c clip eliminators will be installing when they come in.. Super excited..
    Also before I left offshore I left the car getting a chromoly cage and getting the Wolfe ARB welded. Should be done when I go back home in 2 weeks..
    Next plan will be some New adjustable front struts with the coil overs I have already , Bump steer, Tach and misc gauges.. Then off to Wideband tuning in the dyno.. And do suspension tuning and see if I can make it go straight..

    Is that a stock driveshaft? I have an aluminum driveshaft in my garage I'll sell for $180. I only need the 8.8 rear bracket off of it since I'm switching back to 8.8 from 9" with a u-joint mount.

    Good choice on the baseline stuff. I had their ARB and lower ctrl arms on my old White GT. Very well built and great support after the sale. What lower ctrl arms are on it?

    Remove the quad shock bracket from the rear frame rail, you no longer need that, its killing a little tire clearance and a couple lbs of weight.

    If you keep those rear shocks and coil-over setup like that, I would think about doing some kind of reinforcement to the factory upper shock mount. It wasn't meant to support the weight of the vehicle. Also, a suggested tire thats not as wide would be a 28x9 ET drag or 28x11.5 ET Street. They will hook good and fit well.

    Sounds very tempting Carl... I took a big hit buying all of this stuff and paying the chromoly 6pt and ARB in full this week,,, it left me broke LOL Let me get the adjustable struts and bump steer out of the way and hopefully you still have the driveshaft...

    The lowers look like hotchkis standard boxed non adjustable... Maybe Hoopty can chime in on this..

    I will remove those shock brackets... as soon as I get home....

    Thank you for the tip on bracing the upper shock mount,,, Do you think bracing them to the rear roll bar would be ok?? or a brace from side to side that some stores sell ok?? I read from people doing either or.. What do you think

    The car currently has 275-50-15 BFG drag on a 10'' rim they clear the coil over somewhat descent.. i will go to the speed shop when the day comes to get tires..

    Well, I haven't posted it up for sale yet until I pull the rear yoke/bracket off and make sure I have what I need, but u know the old saying, money talks. I still have some upgrades to buy and went broke myself as far as car money with a trip to TX Performance yesterday LOL.
