depends where the course goes, you would be amazed how fast you can blast the shocks in that position. The front tires are murder on exposed shocks and can wreak havoc. but all you need to do is cut the boot length wize snd zip tie it to the shock and shaft to protect the shaft. I will be out at the race, if I see your car I will come say hello or if you see my red RR come say helloDave-coParticipantFebruary 13, 2021 at 6:03 pmPost count: 78
for sure not intimidating me,, but I will give you a tip, put a shock boot on your rear shocks or you will sand blast the shafts your first time out. Ask me how I know on a swing car. The front tires will blast the shafts bad and ruin the shafts and seals, I want you to finish not lose shocksDave-coParticipantFebruary 13, 2021 at 12:52 amPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 12, 2021 at 3:07 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:42 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:37 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:29 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:28 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 10:13 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 8, 2021 at 3:36 pmPost count: 78Dave-coParticipantFebruary 6, 2021 at 2:16 pmPost count: 78Dave-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 yearsDave-coParticipantFebruary 5, 2021 at 5:29 pmPost count: 78
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.
