SafeQuip Safety Equipment supplied the belts for our car and Butler Built Seats custom constructed a seat to fit our driver. Both represent the latest in short track safety innovations.

Longacre Racing supplied our gauges. This attractive package was easily mounted and all of the systems worked trouble free. We tried a new mounting position to the right of the driver and this seemed to work out fine.

The body was provided by Five Star Bodies. Here, we see inside the engine compartment where we showcase some of the performance parts used for the project.
The ignition of choice was...
The ignition of choice was the MSD HVC system. We were able to run rev limiter chips to make sure we didn't over-rev our crate motor.
To charge the system, we ran...
To charge the system, we ran a Performance Distributors alternator. We did not see the advantage of running without an alternator. The extra security of having a fully-charged battery all of the time meant one less worry.
Flaming River provided our...
Flaming River provided our steering box and linkage, as well as the steering column for our car. These units are rugged, as well as very good looking.

For support and control, we mounted Eibach Springs and QA1 shocks on the car. The setup we chose was what is known as a soft/conventional setup. So, our springs were midrange and the shocks were basic with 6's on the front and 4's on the rear.
The carburetor we used for...
The carburetor we used for our GM crate motor came from C&S Holley Carburetors. Once we jetted the carb correctly, it came alive and worked flawlessly in the three races we ran it in.
