I'm on the edge of my seat looking forward to updates. You are a lucky sob to get your hands on an original P38 tank. I am just starting on a Rod-n-Race tank, also flathead powered. What axles are you running in the rear, originals or did you convert to a 9" type axle?

they are 9" axles.   and yea the car is being built mainly for maxton so the rear suspension was a must have.

Did you use Flat-o-matic for the adapter? I have talked with them and they seem to have a pretty good product. I plan on using their shorty kit for the c4 and am just curious to see what people think about the adapter. Thanks!
