Mock up body from davemotohead coming soon.

This will be entire back half job...removable body.

Drive train will roll out rather than drop out.

Phil,

There is a big differance. Lighter, most guys start smart then go for the steel and you know the rest.

Had everything in play 12 years ago from Renagade L.V. at $10,000.00 and they were talking steel for a mostly comlete kit for corvair. 930 4 speed was for me then went to Reno Tom.

If you have Mr. Evens and his pals fab Aluminum brackets? you could get your car lighter go faster sooner.

2 cents.

JIM: Thanks but I dont care about weight.

My car weighs about 4000 pounds...momentum is everything in landspeed.

I will be fabricating everything ground up for my car.

I may use Arch's 4 link set-up modified for my solid rear suspension.

Phil, I'm on your side and like that set-up, you can pull it off maybe under 3,000 LB's for sure. Can't wait to see someone doing something.

Thanks jim

Will you have a spare drivetrain you can swap in when you blow this one up?
What's another $20k or so? ;-}

I'm actually more interested in the roll-in/out drive train. I've seen them done in photos of course but I couldn't find any discussions about the merits, drawbacks, procedures, etc. Maybe I'm searching the wrong terms?

RE: Your comment/pics in this thread is one of the few references I found.

Has this been discussed here before in detail?

Interesting Phil!

I'd like to see your car again. Last time was years ago at the PSFBT. Never hooked up with you as you were away from your car everytime my daughter and I visited.

Pushed my car out of the weeds and into the shop over the weekend. What a mess! Spent all day cleaning out 8-9 years worth of crud/crap. I'ts looking up though.

Tried to send some pics on this site last evening, but they're too big and I'm too ignorant to do anything about it. I'll try to send something to your email address if you like.
