George,
Are you still thinkin' about mini-tubs for your '68?

Dave..I have to do something.I have 0 traction and the blown big block spools up in gear like it is in neutral.I can not roll open the secondarys at all.No kidding..this thing is a torque monster right off idle.

This is where it gets tough to decide.At what point do you enter the realms of pro street or remain street machine?I have room right now for the bfg radial drag p325/50r15.they hooked well behind the n/a 427 but the 461 blown unit is a different beast for sure.Decisions.decisions.

Re: Is this Pro-Street

I would research the best way to go,I have a four link with a diagonal link track locator and it rides like a truck like the pro-touring people say go fast and still have the drive of a late model (did I just say that)I think DSE products are the way to go.I think there are some hime ends out there that alston has that are not metal that would give a better ride that I may try in the future.You might want to check into this if you go four link.I would go four link before ladder bar for sure.

Re: Is this Pro-Street

I did my backhalf on my car 15 years ago. It is a ladder bar car and I have the Morrison poly bushing on the ladder bars and panhard bar. It has a real good ride. But I just changed the poly bushings to rod ends so I will have to see how it rides now. I just installed them today.

I like both tubbed cars and mini-tubs. I installed the DSE quadralink in my buddies car. That is the one that just got painted. I like the DSE kit but it will be a while till we drive the car.

Re: Is this Pro-Street

If this blown 68 goes for less than 12k..it is a heck of a deal for someone.if the rebuild is what he claims..you are purchasing the engine and getting the car for free.It is a pro street wannabe for sure right now.

JD502..you have what i consider to be a true street machine.The Pro Street crowd goes one step further to mimic a street legal Pro Stock race car.Seeing how Pro Stocks utilize a 17" wide tire with a 104" circumferance..you would need an additional 4.5" footprint to fall into that category.fwiw..If you are thru the hood with wheely bars,you better have the HP to back up the look.IMHO.

Re: Is this Pro-Street

I'm building a 68 with a 632 BBC (non blown to begin with) 816Hp.

Car is minitubbed running 325 x 50 x 17
4 link with QA1's and panhard bar

Up front AME front sub frame

330mm disc brakes all round

I consider my car to be...beyond the typical pro-tourer (due to the fact it is an old school dual quad Hilborn scooped BBC rather than a twin turbo LSx motor), but less than a Pro-streeter as it is not blown, nor caged, nor big rollers on the rear (even though 325's aren't small)

I believe I am in the middle...

In my mind Pro-street is as stated above by many...a street registered drag car with loads of horsepower and constructed to hookup !
