    Cool pics.Gotta ? ,everything i've read and seen says that style sway bar is better suited for drag racing not handling.I would like some insight on your choice . I've installed a couple of these on mustangs and they were straight line cars ,and thought about installing one on my monte and its geared towards the PT style .Shoot it will even have A.C.

    John Bulba is doing the fabrication on my car. He also does Lou Gigliotti's cars (the three-time SCCA SPEED World Challenge Champion).

    This is the same set up as the SCCA TA cars. Check out David Pozzi's tread in suspensions. I just posted in it to move it to the top of that section.

    I'm going to pull my car from Wade's. He has not worked on my car since the beginning of November '04. Everytime I visited the shop there was a new car he was working on instead of mine. He also decided to build his own car as well. He has been sitting on a large sum of my money for almost 6 months. I delivered my car on February 7, 2004 ( almost 16 months ago ) and there my be, at the most, 4 weeks of work put into the car. To put it very mildly, I'm pretty unhappy about the whole situation.

    Damn sorry to hear about that Kirt, what did he say when you asked him about your car? Thats why i never pay upfront. But you know sometimes projects go on longer than you expect. good luck with your car. I hope you find a good shop.
