The rims with their new bolt pattern look great. I think you will like the 9" Hoosiers better than the 10" MT.

I think the Chevy beam axle looks fine with the nose piece.

Bob, that's a solid steering arm unit, I like the lighting holes to kill a bit of weight. It will all come together when you get everything repainted. A few holes in that axle will kill 10-15#, right...

Bob, Thanks for the nice words on my old SDRA dragster. With your loss of your best friend dragsters don't seem to matter much. The little one misses his/her buddy too. Hang in there.

Bob,
Just changing the front rims will save a few Lbs. I ran those same style model A rims on my SDRA dragster. Be sure to get a weight on both setups.

Maybe a good port & polish job on the head...

Bob,
Will the spindles on the Anglia axle fit the light weight spindle mount front rims you posted. That axle, no front brakes, & aluminum rims should take off a few #'s.

Bob, you never said how far down the 1/4 mile you were when you hit 5000 rpm's and the motor ran out of steam?
