    Count me in for one... Also when asking about price, be sure to include a question of Delivery time.. Those people that went with March pullies waited forever and had nothing but problems.... If time frames are met & issues started to arrise, I'd pull out. But if they do what they say, I'll take at least 3~!

    Thanks,

    What a huge undertaking.

    I would love to cut 125 lbs off of the front of my car but I know I would never take the time to do this. I thought pulling my engine was tough. I can imagine what it would be like taking the whole front of my car off, not quite but still.

    I think there is a guy down here that makes one, along with some other chassis pieces. I think his name is Johnny Lang or something like that. I'll check around and see.

    Uh well I hope I'm not giving away somebody's secret here, but it only took a quick search on Google to find it. You can check out this thread on another Tbird site. The company is AJE Racing, apparently their member costs around $1000 because you need to use their adjustable A-arms as well. Seems like an expensive way to shave 100lb and gain maybe a tenth. But maybe it's more for people interested in handling and suspension mods.

    Big thing is that you take 125lbs off of the front of the car, Traction would be much better so you may gain .2. But handling would be much better, that would probably put the front/rear balance at 50/50 easily and the suspension you could put in it then would be awesome. Add some coil over mounts for the rear and 1G on the pad would be simple at that point.

    I thought I was just about finished, and then you wave 1G in my face!

    Yeah, yeah - I'm drooling at the thought.

    You'll never be finished, accept it now and the days to come will be easier. If you can do it yourself, and want to, it can probably be done for around $2,000. Coil overs are they way to go for a true road race suspension. Infinately adjustable, and easily adjustable at that.

    The thought of that (1G) is what is keeping me interested in this topic also. I would be very interested if this were somewhat affordable.

    You can probably get coil overs put on all around for about $1500, saves you $500 bucks at least.

    I will talk to the fabricator about making these for use with stock arms, and see about having tubular arms made as well, we'll see what he thinks.
