regals well idk if i'm of much help with that one. i stuck a 80s ford bumper on the front and went forward the whole derby and won. my right side frame went up into the pulleys tho. still managed. if i had another i know stuff id be doing for sure.
tho feel free to ask me other things i did and such. im constantly around these kind of cars and see plenty
overkill? im guessing u didnt hardnose it then. 80's bumpers are crap. theres only 2 bumpers that are overkill on a lumina if built right and their 74 impala and pointys both will destroy lumina frame rails.
It was a 80s ford bumper. Ive ran two n they r good. We were only allowed to bolt on. I meant overkill cause I didnt cut.ends off so it was extra weight tht nade my pass side frame bend...plus the head on hit. Was a regal btw me n the guy who got second both had regals. We destroyed the competition

Just ran my second W-body yesterday. I took a good shot to the drivers rear corner and both control arms (the ones in front and back of the mono leaf) broke, the trailing arm broke and the strut kicked out and let the mono leaf pop out and dig in the ground. The back of the car I ran last year folded in so bad it wasn't safe to run again. I know how to build the front of these cars but what about the back. I can plate the outside of the humps but only with 1/8". I only hit with the front so all of the damage came from getting hit. Any ideas?
