    Listen to all these powerful cars being so polite. Makes me think my poor little 1.7 doesn't stand a chance.

    What I do need is a set of tires. Anyone got a good set I can make arrangements to use? I hate to have to buy a set just for the Shoot Out and last year I had a problem because my tires were worn through and I couldn't keep the car straight! Smitty wanted to burn them as he was taking them off the car lol

    You talking about the same tires that broke your transmission last summer? I thought they hooked pretty damn good actually.

    Maybe so, but every time I shifted all I saw was the wall. And they were bad enough that Smitty convinced the wife that they were unsafe and not to let me use them. He'll tell you how bad they were.

    Of course maybe it's because I was channeling John Force a little also

    Ira - I've got my old set of MT's you're welcome to try. I thought they had lost a good bit of grippiness being as old as they apparently are, but after comparing to a brand new set, they're not that bad after all..lol. As long as Danielle doesn't make me put them on the anniversary, I can bring them for you.

    Thanks Matt. Willing to accept any and all offers of assistance. I won't have any room in the car for extra tires or wheels or a jack or anything, so I am at the mercy of the good nature of others!

    May I ask what size they are?

    Great, thanks! I haven't run 26" tires in years. Be interesting to see how they perform. I really appreciate the offer.

    That is the SC motto... if you need anything just ask and it will be there. That goes for you guys from NY as well. So if you need anything just let me know and I will have it ready for your needs.....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    It's,

    The transmission is good. Shift beautiful everytime. It has a noise that it had since it was installed so i have a rebuild kit for it. I also ran it last year with only about 1.5 litres of oil and it took it though it was making noise until it was topped up. That is what happens when the trans is installed 1 year before it is driven. I though I had already topped it up. Oops!

    Matt are these my old ones, I can't remember who I sold them too. Early style SC wheels? MT ET Streets? If so I think they were 26 X 10.5 X 16

    Just curious
