Re: malibu traction issues

Unless your racing heads up on a .400 pro tree there is no real reason to launch at 5000 rpm with an automatic. Launch rpm is for tuning your reaction time. Next time try launching at 3600 rpm. It will flash the converter a little harder and stick the tire a little harder. When I ran an iron headed ...

Re: new ground up rewire bracket car

Thanks, yes I did all the wiring. I have a background in low voltage wiring. Did high end car audio for 5 or 6 years, then residential/commercial security/cctv for another 5 or 6 years.

Re: new ground up rewire bracket car

I used a switch & relay panel by K&R, makes for a neat install and includes all labeled wires & connectors. http://i676.photobucket.com/albums/vv124/10secBu/79%20Malibu%2025_3%20rebuild/assembly39_zpscsqgvcyw.jpg http://i676.photobucket.com/albums/vv124/10secBu/79%20Malibu%2025_3%20rebuild/assembly4...

Re: G-body, Malibu chassis creative expertise needed

A round tube back half consists of more than just a single pair of round frame rails out back. It's built with a ladder assembly to give the frame height which is how it's made strong compared to a 2x3 square tube frame. Just two round rails under the stock floor will not have enough strength and ha...

Re: G-body, Malibu chassis creative expertise needed

If doing a round tube back half, why in the world would you keep the stock rear floor. With all the tubes needed, the stock floor will be nothing but in the way, make a mess trying to make patches and close off the big holes and add weight.

Re: 2 circuit or 3 holley 4500 with brake?

I've never run a 2 circuit dominator, all have been 3 circuit. I've used from a 1050 to a 1250 to a 2.40" billet main body dominator.

Re: NEW WIRING KIT

Digital Delay also sells a kit very similar to the K&R. Available in black & chrome and they have standard kits as well as one that has an option to control an electronic dial board for bracket racers.

Re: NEW WIRING KIT

I used the K&R HD kit, I like the stud version instead of the plastic sockets for wire attachment. It's a great kit and a bargain when you take into consideration it includes the relay board, switch panel (connects with only one cable) and all the wire and connectors to wire the car minus battery ca...

Re: Wheel tubs

If the back half is already done your limited to how far you can move the axle as is. I limit threading 4 link bar rod ends out to 5 turns most of the time. If you wanna move it back a noticable amount then new longer 4 link bars may be needed. You can center the rear in the opening how you see fit ...

Re: Wheel tubs

with that tall of a tire you have no choice but to stretch the quarter panel opening.
