yes but...they wouldn`t race in the same class/group this car or mine would race in, the BFG T/A radial cars yes, the wide-bodies no. they would be racing against the ex SCCA tube frame cars, turbo Porsches and the GTP cars. I see the point of that centerlink on a NASCAR style stock car, they are on different degree banking tracks each week but whats the point of a bumpsteer adjustable centerlink on a vintage road racer?

all that fabrication looks kinda heavy. also noticing no reverse drive starter, so some of the benefit of the mini clutch is lost on a big flywheel, do I see a grease fitting on the LR inner camber bar heim? it also doesn`t have the trick clevis for the rear spring bolts...

It weights 2900 or 3000 depending on if it's a 427 or 454.

Was he racing SVRA? He has the cage going in front of the front suspension and his bird cage is mounted to the frame.

"supposed to weight".....first add #150 for the trans and now consider that the SVRA rarely weights anyone anymore and the HSR never did.
