When you guys are gathering stuff where do you start for spare parts?

I have a car that nearly everything had to be made for and nothing is normal parts store or race shop parts.

What do you take to make you feel like you've got it covered?

well its a turbo 2.3 Mustang with a Doug Nash 5 spd. Just typing that makes me think I'm phucked as it gets. lol
john huber has done drag week in his turbo 4. You'd be suprised what you can find. I am taking my Daily Driver to drag week. Packing a diff, some gaskets, oil, and some other questionable parts.

barn.

walt reynolds 68 camaro was having issues and we needed a alt, the cop who stopped to help us said his dad had some old 60s stuff in the barn lol so we got in the cop car and headed to this small ass house and a barn out back, had to take the bed and couch off the car but it had the right regulator/alt we needed.

The BEST Drag Week I had was the one that I didn't bring shit!!! Ever since I been bring parts, it ain't been so good..

My suggestion is, bring the car, and some clothes, that's it! :rolleyes:


We towed a trailer for the first time last year, not a bad idea, as we didn't have to unload a thing out of the car, which was nice, but this year we may close in the little trailer and organize things a little better. The biggest thing we drug with us this year was a very large cooler full of beer!! :drinkers::drinkers: :smt081

I KNOW that even if we run on ET Streets the whole event, we WILL be bringing some "street" tires to change over to in the case of rain, I don't want to be the first person to totally destroy my car and/ or killing myself trying to drive in the rain on tires we should never be on. After this year driving in a down pore on ET Streets, I realized this is total insanity, and I won't be doing this again!! I got lucky in 06, we hydroplaned on the highway and could not of gotten any closer to wrecking! I understand why Hoosier wanted nothing to do with me running their tire on the street..

I've been good about eliminating anything that would require special tools plus I made an itemized list as I've put the car together of each tool needed to build the car from scratch. I'm about down to a metric wrench set and complete set of 3/8 sockets.

My car is a notch with a 10 pnt so I dont have room for hardly anything inside. I'll need to figure out a trailer of some type as well. Does anybody use anything other than little trailers? I'd only be hauling some wheels and bulky stuff. Has anybody used a slide in hitch rack of any kind? My car is super light in the nose so that could turn into a problem too. lol
