    How much does she weigh in at? Gotta be stoked with those results! My tonner is very similar spec, but you've got 0.4 seconds or so on me.

    I'm not sure what it weighs I'd only be guessing if I said around 3000lbs, your tonner
    sounds like a weapon though !

    Hey Justin , I had mates commenting on how quiet it was lol . You wouldn't have to strip
    much I'm missing the fuel tank , seats ,carpet and the heater . I'd like to get in there and
    strip that shitty black sound deadening crap off the floor it sticks to your shoes every time the
    floor gets hot .

    With the rear suspension I used a chain and twisted it to pull the top
    of the diff forward with one too arm unbolted from one side and took
    note of the measurement in relation to the pinion angle , marked it
    then cut it down to size and welded it back together .
    Chain was in place of the top arm .

    I'm not sure how much it helped but it felt better on the launch which was
    stalling to 3000rpm then flooring it .

    Before the last trip out to the drags I dropped the trans into get a new 1st gear ratio,
    350Lj on here is the trans builder so one arvo over some beers a 6cyl ratio was installed.
    The glide is also trans braked which I'm yet to use with this combo

    Pic just for the sake of a pic the plates still looked new after the abuse it copped

    Hahaha...it's not worthy of one mate, maybe when it runs that 10!

    Been trying to set up the adj' trailing arms I fitted, but without angle finding gear is hopeless.

    2° downward angle with a one piece driveshaft .
