Here's my buddy Glen's '67 428 4speed doing its thing!

http://home.attbi.com/~mustangclassic66/glenrun2.avi

He runs it on the street and likes it to handle well, but it would be cool if there was a way to make the front end rise and still handle on the street. It's running leaf springs, cal-tracs, sway bars, gas shocks (I think). Please check it out and let him/us know. He's happy with the way it is, but I'll bet we can make it better.
Thanks!

TT,

That was a 12.33 pass at 113mph (I think).

Glen,

You're not letting US help you. Be open minded, think of it as the 12 step program.

The easiest way to do it would be to leave the sway bar on the car, but take the ends off. It's an easy job to hook it back up, 20 minutes tops, and that's taking your time. That's what I did on my '70 when I was racing it.

OK OK I will take the Sway Bar ends off, BUT not till March 5th on a WED night. I don't want to change things on points race.

i already asked you nicely to lose the caps. do you use them to make yourself noticed? if you want attention, good attention, dont call people like me stupid. i'll bet $50 i know a heluva lot more than you. because i listen and ask questions, not make retarted comments and try to put other people down.
