in no way am I craticking anything you are doing or your ideas, just leaning on my experience with these cars. The rear shocks you will find will go away quick with that size shock and that small resivour., for nearly 4 decades we were required to run the stock shock mounts and use to burn the shocks bad. I raced a swing axle 67 that I still own to get over the problem takes some serius schock work and still stay in the stock shocks. We ended up with 3 inch resivours that went door post to door post with 2 lines per shock with 1 way check valves holding nearly 3 gallons of oil or a bit more. Life changed after that, seals lasted forever oil didnt boil and lasted. The best way these days is to get a 12in shock get a 2in bump can mount mount a eye to the bump can mount at 18in and instantly you have much more oil to keep the shock cool.FranzParticipantFebruary 5, 2021 at 6:09 pmPost count: 5403
Hey Dave, what do you think about door bars?Dave-coParticipantFebruary 5, 2021 at 11:43 pmPost count: 78
to be honest I dont run door bars in my class 11 or my 51600, never been a issue and in my opinion not needed as the body itself and doors offer a lot of protection plus they make it a hasle getting in and out of the car. Nothing more will be added to the cage in the picture except seat mounts that have not been done yet. My cage goes right under the stock gas tank mount which I run and weld to the gas tank mount. My cars last, I have built 37 class 11 cars over the years and a lot are still running today and I am proud to say every single one has won at least 1 time over the yearsFranzParticipantFebruary 6, 2021 at 7:28 amPost count: 5403
Cool. We’d rather do without also. I wasn’t sure about the rules. They said an opening of 370 square inches required a door bar, but also said that a steel body steel door vehicle doesn’t require door bars.
It seems like most class 11 do have door bars. But like you said, kind of hard to get in and out of.Dave-coParticipantFebruary 6, 2021 at 2:16 pmPost count: 78
Also the pan-tunnel are very strong.It is not required in Snore More or Score but to me hiking your self over the bsr to me is not for me. I put them in 1 car and regretted it and have not done it again…you will be fine with outPat KParticipantFebruary 6, 2021 at 2:32 pmPost count: 2933
JJ will be happy to hear the door bars are going away. Less weight!!!!
No door bars means just a couple of patches to finish up fad. Woohoo!
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantFebruary 7, 2021 at 11:40 amPost count: 2933Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 3:36 pmPost count: 78

Car looks real nice, first time I have seen a body painted inside and out before doing the cage. What are you doing with the front end? Rules say front snubber must be there, in stick position yours is gone. Just asking.Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:28 pmPost count: 78
forsure not as pretty as yours
