It has a panhard bar, it's just not in the pics.

This morning, I'm headed down to pick up the racing seat, HANS device, and harness.

Rich, when I built my Willys coupe back in 1989, I used leaf springs with the shackles on the front end of the springs and when I got it running it would weave very slowly from left to right. I put a panhard bar on it and that made it run better down the road, 140 MPH @ 9.75 ET on the drag strip. So when I built the Studebaker I used the same method of front suspension and has run 248 MPH with no problems.

My Vega has a cross leaf (Ford type) front suspension. As was common on dirt oval cars I have a shackle on one end only. The right side acts somewhat as a Panhard bar as it keeps the axle from moving side to side. The left side has the room for the spring to flex. In real life this might result in some bump steer. But on the salt or dirt it has worked fine for some time.

Haha!

I started building a '38 Lasalle hotrod, then decided to build a LSR car. I was going to use the '41 Chevy, but switched to the '38.

Clear as mud now?

Roy Dilley has been working on the aluminum blower intake, in Washinton, and sent me some update pics.

Pete finished the lifters, and started on the cam today. The first pic is Pete on the salt in 1954.

I'm headed home next week, and the plan is to get the seat and steering column in, and get the car bead blasted.

Roy has the intake all machined, and just has to weld it together.

Car is apart, to get bead blasted. Need to finish welding the rear up, get the frame blasted and  painted, and run brake and fuel lines.

Well, progress continues



Dale was trying to get the Donovan gear drive,angle drive, and mag fitted to the engine. The engine will have a motor plate on the front, and he was checking his measurements, before have in water jetted. Dale used a wooden cutting board, and damned if he didn't get it all mounted!
