Actually it's a 16" to 20" mike. I was able to resize a photo taken before Sparky told me how to use my camera. This is what we started with.

... it's a 16" to 20" mike...
The micrometer barrel sure doesn't appear to have 4" of travel. Are there removal anvil extensions?

You have a bunch of wedge in the car. It may tend to pull to one side. It won't be a good oval car because the wedge is the wrong way!  grin grin evil

lol 
   682                       1116
-  510                     -   952
= 172/2=86            =  164/2= 82


PJ   this is just a SWAG on my part  at trying to offset the eng torque &  pinion trying to lift the right rear.  Hopefully underway it has a better chance of going straight .  This thing is seems to be pretty responsive to changing tire pressures.  It seems to be fairly torsionally ridged.

  LF              RF
  636            506      1142
  953          1081      2034

205" wb 
cg 131" aft of the front axle

CG with driver on board is at the frt motor plate without driver 6" rear ward  hard to believe this car is 75 lbs lighter than the old car  but right now I only have 180# of ballast the old car had almost 300 and 2 batteries that sat right in front of the rear axle.  I could get another 180# in without turbos.
