    The big thing I notice is no wiggle at the top end....it seems very stable. I've got a couple of passes at 12 psi so I've had the tires pretty soft.

    I dont know if it still pulls the tires....no good video from outside the car but it's been launched hard 4 or 5 times. It doesn't squat the way it used to....I know that.

    What length ladder bars did you use? From what I read a 36" bar should work best for our cars but I don't know lol.

    Were did you get your axle tube braces from? I seen Strange has a set but there is only 1 link per tube.

    I made them myself

    They are just short pieces of 3/4" tube with rod ends.

    Nice work! Any reason you did not just weld 3/4 pipe in and not use the rod ends?
