Thanks,
they look kind of goofy don't they?
I like the low look myself, I guess that's why I seem to be drawn to the big block cars.

So are you going for the Dragon Snake drag car stance? Because they had the front way up like that for weight transfer at launch.

Tom

I am not.
The wheel has 2" travel with 1/2" to spare.
This is normal.

Maybe I should have stayed with 427.

Thanks for the link Nick. A Readers Digest version of an amazing build.

It really looks more extreme in photos. Just as the cars are a lot smaller, in person. Most of these photos look to be shot from a few inches off the ground.
The 427 cars are a little more "refined", sure. However, it's the little raw, Grunty 289 cars the zipped through the corners & ate up those Ferraris, so that you could have your mantle piece. Respect due... ;-).

Hyde
I agree that those that have not experienced a 289 first hand think pictured stance is off. I get it as most 99% of reps are 427.

Car is now in storage. Dropped off today.
April 1st it comes home.

Found Girling rear calipers. Will post pics once cleaned up.

Winter is here.

Found some nice rebuildable "Girling" rear calipers with ebrake mechanism and pads.

These are steel 3-piston type which were used on the 289 cars.
If I can get the right disc formy wheel hat may add in the spring 2015

They are not difficult to rebuild. Stainless steel pistons, seal & boot kits and cadmium plating.
