I was looking underneath the '66 today thinking and prepping for my next session at the track and noticed that the snubbers on my traction bars are resting against the spring eyes. The fat snubbers are about 1.5" tall and can be trimmed off if needed. Should I give them some clearance or leave them loaded? I was getting 1.80 60' times my last time out with 2500 rpm launch. This time I'll be trying 3500 rpm launch and shooting for 11s.

Why the difference and is that for street cars to? While on the subject anyone use the South Side Life Bars that were soo popular in my neck of the woods on the Fox bodies about a decade ago?
