don't you need a panhard bar or something to locate the rear laterally?
It's not in place in the picture, since I don't have the fabrication facilities at home.
I'll cross-brace the Panhard mount to the other side of the chassis.
Using the stock rear shock mounts, and Integra rear calipers with cut-down Prelude rotors to use the 4x4.5 Metro bolt pattern on Dutchman Racing custom axle shafts (3/4" shorter per side than the original S10 axles, I had to use shortened seals to get the axles into the c-clips)
Speedway shock mounts and ebay G-body lower control arms and Samurai front shocks (the right length and ends and travel for this application...)
As far as the body crumbling under RWD forces, I'm going to build a roll bar in the back half and tie the original front leaf spring mount to it, as well as the spring perches and shock mounts.
I also have left a lot more of the original structure than the Hamsters, hopefully that'll help as well.
The J-Body IS BACK! A Cadillac-badged thumb in the eye of Roger Smith, look for the smoke at a track near you in 2014.
The 2013 redux: 13 races, 10+ different cars, 7 states: (CA, WA, TX, VA, NC, CO, WI). An even better year.
2007/2012/2013 Driver's Championship (what was I thinking!?) 44 races and counting...
