Do you have all the leafs strapped together? We machine little steel clamshells and bolt all the ends of the spring down tight to the main spring.

These are the runs from a couple of weeks ago with a good track, also had the cut-down 6 cylinder front springs installed, which gives me a lot more extension in the front:



60' times were 1.75, 1.72 and 1.71, manages 1.68 on one of the other runs that wasn't in the film, which is a PB.

Awesome! Looks like your shifter is the same as the one in my Machine (console shift automatic).

That’s the that shifter was used in the Aussie Hornets, I did file the gate to make it work with the reverse pattern valve body. Had a lot of trouble with shifting straight from 1st to 3rd before that.
