Just picked up a cutlass ciera the other day. On the trunk I plan on tucking the trunk and prebending. Now I can secure in four spots and on two of them I can run threaded rod from the top of the trunk sheet metal to sub frame should I run it right next to the downward part of the trunk after its tucked or further back? Also on the front of these cars what makes them the strongest? I also can put all thread in two spots to the subframe up here. I plan on making the front suspension pretty solid but it has to have a little give. Thanks for any help.
In all honesty I just built one of these cars to the max.. front was tight but the spindles and struts are garbage.. I will be fixing it to go for another show but I won't put that much time in one of these again
Thanks. You don't think stock suspension would tolerate mostly heavier competition??
Show in mind (MM) had about 15 cars, most were underbuilt and super rusty...one Gran AM, one bubble Cavi, one fox body....the rest were W's
I walked around looking after the show and the top 3 were not rusty and the 07 was not rusty... And I would personally not bring nothing but a w-body to MM... Everytime they bring a rwd the w-bodies tear it up so a ciera would not hold up with out a yrs worth of welding...
Cool, thanks 607. I spent under a minute each looking at most of them. Only got a real good close look at a few. Every one I did look close at was pretty rotten, including the 1 rwd, which if I remember right, finished in 4th. We don't know how to build rust here, lol. Will have to read a little deeper into the rules...considering a 2015 compact run. I think the minis had one of the better heats there, from a spectators POV.....hands down the best Friday heat.
Ill keep these Celebrities, my Cierra, and my 6000 closer to home at a 105 or 107 show. I have 103, 105, 107, and 108 rules to deal with, and 108 is relatively new here (slowly creeping it's way west). I have only ever seen one of these run at 108 (BB 2012), but it didn't run long enough to see what it could do. Thanks again.
