Re: Carlisle 2022 Feedback - Please read

1. Did you attend Carlisle this year? If not, why not? What would make you want to attend in 2023? Yup. Not sure if I’ll make 2023 to be honest. Been to the last 3 in a row. Might wait till 2025 for my next visit. 2. Overall, using your own criteria, how did you feel this year's Carlisle event compa...

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

Scorpio struts are different diameter than XR4ti. So, what if you want to put the Scorpio knuckle on the XR4ti for 5 lug, but you'll also need struts too. just a shim is needed. I'm curious about the shim, is it an off the shelf part someone has, or something we have to make? Or shim such as using ...

Re: Carbon Fiber driveshafts?

My only concern with a carbon fiber driveshaft would be the OD where the shaft goes past the parking brake mounts.

I’m running a one piece shaft with my 302 swapped ‘87. Runs just fine in excess of 120 mph, back straight of Road Atlanta FWIW.

Re: Tires rubbing

If the wheels are sticking out past the fender, you probably have Scorpio lower control arms.

In a weird coincidence, I had a XR LCA on one side and a Scorpio on the other. The Scorpio one stuck out farther.

Re: So, that XR4Ti on BaT.

Eh, do you want a piece of art or get out and drive the car? I choose to drive my car, if I wad it up, I’ll be pissed but it could happen. It could also happen by some idiot texting on their phone and crashing into your car on the street. On the track, everyone is focused on the job at hand. Can $#!...

Re: Yanking engine & tranny without a hoist

Ported Edelbrock heads, port matched GT40 lower, 306.

The balance bar is from Harbor Freight and yeah, we just cranked the body high enough to slide it in underneath. Also you do have some room to move the struts around.
