The Adjustable 8 ¾” rear-end is narrowed and sports 4.88:1 Spooled gears and Moiser 35 splined axles for nice launch power. It is Tubbed in the rear to make room. The Disc front brakes with drum rear brakes do a good job of stopping. It has 90-10 front shocks with torsion bar suspension and manual steering.

The interior has black bucket seats with a custom kids seat in the back with a roll bar. The gauges are Auto-Meter and the windows are powered. Fuel is delivered from a 15 gallon Fuel Cell with NOS for that extra kick! My quarter mile average times are between 11:90 to 12 seconds.
