That could be cool as hell.i wanna do an s10 roadrace style, like 60s-70s trans am meets nascar craftsman truck. i wanna put a chev 302 in there with twin throttle bodies on a crossram intake, with a 6-speed.
from the other posts i just saw, i think my car must be a pig! some of the things you have listed are things i thought about doing to mine, though. it would be nice to get it around 3000lbs.Well I guess my car is a freak then because with a 12 pt C/M cage, rear seat removed, no pass seat, 5 gal cell, full bottle, kirkey seat, fiberglass hood and front bumper with aluminum mounts, alum radiator, 4 wheel aerospace disc brakes and M/T wheels/325 M/T drag radials with my bow tie block 406 is 3180 with my 230 lbs in the seat. Drop down to the 275 hoosiers and my stock block 383 and it's under 3150. Getting ready to put speed glass for the front windshield and make a new radiator support for it to get a few more pounds off the front. 60fts on the 275 are 1.37
I hear to build a mustang all the time. If every car you see in a heads up class wasnt a mustang i would love t build another one. I had a lx fox and just dont want another one..Would my combo go faster and work better in a fox?? yeah, maybe ... but im going to find another way.:smt093the g-body's work good.i had a 80 cutlass that i had 2 kirkey seats in front and the back seats were out for roll cage.manual steering and manual brakes 8.5 10 bolt with aluim.brake drums.it wieghed 3260 with me in it.(i weighed 250 then).i just swapped over to a mustang last year and it weighs 2905. with me and 2 bottles and 5 gallons of fuel and hooks good.real good!!!! so if weight is an issue and you can croos breed you can go with a mustang!!!
I want your S10!
Louie L . I want your car. That is what i had in mind, was dooin a GN clone. sweet ride.
these cars are EASY to get down to #3000 lbs and under!!! you just got to know what your "not" going to need and what you want....
mine's sitting at a very well weight #'s now with easy and only fiberglass on it, is the hood and front bumper.. full 14 pt. cage system, factory glass, full interior,dash, factory radio, etc...275 DR's under it also..
As i stated they are EASY to make these loss weight and still look factory appearing.... another member/close friend on www.malibuthunder.com has his car sitting at the #2700 lbs mark right now and no fiber glass parts!
hit me with a PM and i'll tell you how.
You may want to look for a factory OLds cutlass race car w/ the aluminum font end & supports. I think those get around 3000lbs in stock eliminator forum.Well Hell.... What am i going to do now ........
