Picked up the car from Dick Guldstrand today with the following completed: Tremec TKO600 5 Speed SPC Adjustable Upper Control Arms Rear lowering blocks to bring the back down a little Tow Hook and bracket to subframe Custom Headers to fit Lee Manufacturing quick ratio power steering Wilwood Manual Brakes on all 4 corners. Dick Guldstrands signature and approval to drive it like its stolen. Watching Dick pull the car around and the smile on his face I knew it brought back a lot of memories. He said it'll really step out on you if you stomp on it. He said he really loved the car, and the gas tank was empty. Always a pleasure speaking with guys like Guldstrand. I asked him to sign the dash, it should be good for about 50 horsepower I think. For those who don't know who he is: http://www.corvettemuseum.com/library-archives/hof/guldstrand.shtml He drove camaros back when they were new in the Trans Am Race series and tuned the original Penske Camaros suspension. Badass guy. This is his original 1968 racecar from Dana Chevrolet. http://www.trans-amseries.com/Drivers/TomyDrissi.htm Dick pulling the car around. It finally sits even with the blocks in the rear. Fillin up on some much needed petrol The new shifter location is taller and farther back which helps because I'm so tall I sit real far back. Shifting is now a breeze and the 5th gear makes it a whole different car. Maybe I'll be able to manage 14mpg on the highway now. Cal speedway soon to see how fast I can get her up to on the main straight. Also Dick's Signature which cuts down lap time. New Steering wheel Front Tow hook. I have the DSE shock plate tow hooks for the rear. Custom driver side header. 3 pipes had to be reworked. and new wilwood master and clutch reservoir. Header Clearance is finally good proper. The Lee manufacturing power steering reservoir Lee steering box. 12:1 ratio. Had to try 3 different headers, nothing worked. SPC control arms will help with camber adjustments Front 6 Piston wilwoods. No crossdrilled or slotted. I wanted track reliability not show-touring. I've cracked 4 drilled rotors already with the car. Rear wilwoods... So for the next track outing I have power steering, a 5 speed with a lot more top end, proper brakes that won't fade and proper camber for more contact patch. Should be a lot more fun and a whole new experience. I struggled with the car before. It was like trying to wrestle an elefant around the track. Just driving it around town, it drives like a modern car now. The manual brakes feel great, and its nice to have one less thing to go wrong out at the track. I'm waiting on my Jake's Rod shop aluminum spoiler and then I'll get that mounted. I also need to get an induction setup for the front spoiler so I can mount brake ducting to cool down the front brakes. Then its off to Cal Speedway if I can get it all finished in time. Will be REAL interesting to see what the cars capable on the main straight and turn 1 and 2. Last time I was out there I was topped out in 4th way before the finish line/pits. The proof is in the pudding I suppose.
