    Man, that's a cool Rampage !!!

    I'm straining my eyes trying to see what it's running.

    Looks like some version of an LS Engine from what I can see??

    Must be built for a top speed event would be my guess.

    Thanks

    There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

    As you can imagine spools are a handful in these FWD cars.

    I don't even know if one is available but a few have run welded units.

    If welded properly they're strong but have been known to rip the body apart.

    No doubt normally reliable axles would become a weak point as well.

    There have been some limited slips over the years, mostly Torsen designs.

    OBX was the most common but I don't think they are available new anymore.

    IIRC they were Neon units that required a spacer to work in an A-413 trans.

    Turbos Unleashed have offered some over the years and maybe still do??

    I made a few some years back but it was very labor and parts intensive.

    Some as simple as a factory 7.5 Ford S spring with select fit axle and pinion gears.

    There's a lot of slop in many of the carriers so starting with a good one was important.

    Now that I'm old and had a stroke my limited slip days are over.

    Thanks

    Re: NHRA check list for Stock Eliminator

    I'm can't find a front floorboard. So, what's close.
    What axles are best. Again, while I'm not going to be able to have big power due to rules, ever pass will be on the track.
    I have a 8620L steel cam core being spun up. all of the UGL core I have are to close on the LSA . the cam I am laying out is a 228 218 on a 118 lsa

    Re: NHRA check list for Stock Eliminator

    I'm going to use a solid lifter. I can just gut the hydraulic lifter and use shims which I can waterjet out of shim stock. unless there is a better option. I am also considering putting lifter bore bushings in. but that's a completely different story. I am going to get JE to do a NHRA legal stock replacement forged piston

    Re: NHRA check list for Stock Eliminator

    I hope your project is coming along....on a similar note we were able to set up our 85 town and country for C/FS. My 16 year old daughter made her racing debut this weekend. Ran a best of 15.27....32 under! While she struck out in stock eliminator she did make it 4 rounds in no box....looks like the hook is set....
