Re: bens street build thread

and then it exploded
4:37 goes down
so after a bagillion hours the 3:88 is all stress relived and polished up
hahahha i love ftc stuff thank god for my old man he did the parts and the assembly i watched :happy:
this is what happens when you run out of parts and yer board
if i would have waited another 6 months i could have got that bad ass white rhino o well its still holdin up
all back in we also made a spool for it with some big ass axels polished to chrome but jus messin with some combos
this is the 2386 that dad had chillen on the shelf for god know how long been beat for 5 seasons and still put it down for drag day

Re: bens street build thread

got a rlr rolll cage in it all fitted up and ready to finish weld dad came up with the bitchin idea of beefing up the horns and making up struts that tie in to the cage and the rear solid mount
they are bolted in with heim joints in order to be able to remove the gearbox with the axels

and reclocked the starter in the tranny case to clear the horn supports
