MPac wrote:Drop your psi to 21 and see how it does. I would seriously consider getting slicks or at the very least drag radials. You said your rear had coil springs. Is it a coil spring with trailing arms setup? Are you getting any wheel hop when it spins? I know 21 sounds pretty low but when I dropped my f100 down to 21 it really made a differance with traction. But if you get slicks a little trick to go low on the psi is since you run tubes in them you can go lower but get 16 self tapping screws and run the through the rim into the slick 4 on each side of the rim. It makes for a cheap bead lock. You can then go down low like 10 psi. But beware if you do take them down to 10 or lower you'll get some ass end wiggle at the top end.
I'm curious what kind of times are you putting down at the track?
MPac wrote:Sounds like you have an axle wrap situation going on. Which if I'm thinking correct would have cause the frame to twist. With the power your putting down have you considered ladder bars?

they would be towards the front of it, but even lowered i have looked at it i got plenty of space, but again with shock mounts and torsion bar it is easier to do the right way in the end

Friend of mine's '68 with a 572- frame has been reinforced and since I shot this video it has a cage in it now. Stock rear suspension with airbag I think he may have even added a second coil spring IIRC.
