Hello and welcome! Nice engine build, the lope sounds pretty sweet! I'd say drive it for a while and then see where you want to go. Maybe handle the suspension next, unless you've already got that sorted out.

Thanks! Havnt done anything to the suspension yet. Just started taking weight put of the car. Going to put a new clutch in it soon as well. Building it with my 7 year old son for some bracket drag racing.

I remember the first car I drove with manual brakes, it was a 60's Maverick. The only scary part was the owner didn't tell me it didn't have powered brakes, so when I needed to for the first time it was a butt clincher.

Zach is awesome :biggrin:

Ohhh man, those are some thicc meats. But the tire sidewall flexing back inwards... is that advantageous in any way?

No,toyo just reccomended a 7"wide rim for the 225/50/14 for this particular tire. In most cases a 7"wheel would get a 205-215 width tire but according to toyo because of the side wall construction and compound the rubber they reccomend the 225.
