    Some more pics of the cage fitting I messed with over the weekend

    This is where it needed up sitting flush with the main hoop mocked into place. Way too short for me.

    Been talking with a fabricator buddy of mine and he’s going to use these as templates and make me some bars that will work. So in the mean time it was time for the dash to come out.
    5BB12410-D099-4FBE-9ECE-B8BC9462B8C4.jpeg
    I’ve got a couple brackets to pull off so the bars will fit up snug to the dash bar. Once it’s time to start fitting the dash I. I think I’m going to drop the steering column to make life easier.



    So while I was at shootout 2017 the tech made mention that my fpr wasn’t in a good position. So after reading up On the rules I found it was best to move it over about 1.5”

    Next thing I need to move is going to be the nitrous solenoids.

    so i havent had much of an update since the last three local chassis fabricators ive contacted to get a new set of a pillar bars made up have not had any reply once i asked a price LOL:ohdamn: so i have been searching around for alternative options to find a solution. i think i may have found an option through rhodes race cars to help me out.

    going to measure the car up this weekend to make sure these are going to work for me and get it ordered so this cage can get finished. also found another dash for the car that is in much better shape as well to put back in.

    so a small update:

    so i FINALLY found a local cage builder that is going to get the a pillar bars bent up correctly for me. hes making me a hell of a deal imo. i just have to get the tube which i can order through work. im probably going to get that ordered today so i can get it to him and get this thing finished up.

    ok so the plan is to drop all the tubing stuff off sunday to get it all bent up then hopefully we can start getting the cage in the car. im going to start getting measurments as well and go ahead and add the parachute mount while we are doing the cage. i figured this way we can do it once and be done with it.

    i emailed them about 3 weeks ago and they never got back to me. i remembered your cage in the black talon and it was top notch work. i think my issue is its a pre bent cage and most shops dont want to mess with it

    Awesome build man. Do you do anything special with your wheel alignment?

    not yet thats the one thing it needs is a good alignment. we did the string method and eye balled everything to get it going but a good alignment is coming soon. i want to see how far the car squats to adjust rear camber accordingly

    Yeah I just replaced every ware item in my suspension so I’m kind of starting from zero with my alignment. Ill let you know what I end up doing.

    chutehandle.jpeg

    now im just playing the waiting game to be be able to get it into the shop to get it all put in. hoping it doesnt take too long as im hoping to have this all ready before shootout with the cage done and the car put on high boost to try to see how close to the 9s i can get this car.

    If I may ask, how much fuel pressure is running out the back of the AFPR to, I assume, the gas solenoid? I see the extra line, like I was going to do, just worried about pressure fluxuations at the nozzle and don't ever want to go lean.
    Car is looking great and I bet you can't wait to get that 1st 9 slip!!!!
    Thanks!

    ive never checked it at the line but it that port should still be getting the same pressures as the engine sees. tbh i havent worried much about the nitrous stuff on the car because it really hasnt needed it. the car gets on the converter without it (takes about 6-7 seconds depending on trans temp). weve done one test to make sure it worked and i tried using it once the last year at thootout and had the power wire come loose so never used it since the test. its only there to get the car on the 2step quickly. it doesnt get sprayed down track. im beyond ready for that slip LOL. right now im patiently waiting to get the car into the shop to get the cage put in so im safe. then once i get it home ive got to do all the yearly maintenance (oil change, injector cleaning, ect.) then its going to get re tuned on high boost.

    I am watching and waiting!!!!
    Thanks for the reply.
    I have 3 NO2 kits just collecting dust and have used it before on my other hobby cars, but never to get up on the converter, just to get down the track so it will be testing to see what happens. IDK if you "bump" it or lay on it to get on the converter but I know I am needing to find a dual piston front brake setup now that the time is getting closer. I still have a couple months probably though.
    Thanks again!

    when we tested the kit on my car we just bumped the button, on my tuners old auto car he pressed the button until it blipped the 2step and let off. dual pistons and a hawk brake pad is what im using on the front of mine and its holding the car @ 4100rpm building about 15psi on the 2step.
