    You have to weld about 20#'s of steel to those before they work.

    I actually got a die set from Eastwood too. In fact, I bead rolled some 16 gauge stainless for my fuel cell top.

    I'm going to be roughing in my alignment to make it driveable today what kind of toe in or out do you guys usually do in the rear? also since the front suspension is at an angle do you still want caster?

    ok that makes more sense, we just did a quick toe alignment to get through the weekend its mostly straight line stuff.

    I'll be pulling the engine back out of it as I'm making to much power for the clutch to hold so now I get to spend more money, but this thing is crazy fast when i can get it to hold for a short time, once I find pics and videos from people ill post them
