Tim,

Streamliner looks great, how about a picture of the rear of the car. Could not help but see a Coupe, Tub, and Roadster in the background. What years are they?

Tim, I hope you don't mind but I'll post a few for you that I took a couple months back.

Boy, this project is surrounded with some TALENT!

And we've also  got Hanna/Creitz/Moore and, of course, Hume's masterpiece for Mr. Treit under way.

Good to see all these old dragrace tin fabricators returning to the sport's roots.

I do believe you will want the 45 degree bars on the front half to lean the other way.

Tim, AKA Weed,
Looking at your front end is the A frame that locates the front axle side to side allowed to rotate around the axle? Can't tell from the pictures in Mike's E mail but I assume that it does as otherwise the front 4 link and the A frame will be "at odds" with each other during axle movement.

Just "kibitzing" as usual. Very neat car.

Rex. The answer is yes. Both front and rear. The receivers have a bushing that is honed. The sliders are ground with .003 clearance. Both are drilled for lube with a zerk in the rear of the slider. TWO

The primary forces on the 45 degree bars are “pulling” and not “pushing” and unless you have so much engine torque that you feel you will be able to do wheelies (like top fuel) this is not the strongest arrangement.
Hitting a bump at speed with limited suspension travel can generate massive forces, especially with additional weight often added needed to get traction. A simple broken weld at any of these 45's in this configuration could result in a catastrophic structure failure.....unlike bars that are pushing.  


I am not trying to tell you what to do, nor do I mean to speak disparaginly of your project but before you dismiss what I am saying I highly suggest you consider the outcome if I am correct.

Good luck to ya.

 HotNutz -Assuming you're referring to the triangular links- they are only to locate the axles SIDE TO SIDE -see "SLIDER" in Tim's reply to Rex. Watts linkage would do the same but this is much better for packaging.

Similar to Pro Stock dragrace rear end locators.

The people bulding the car have INCREDIBLE amounts of savvy.
