Re: Greeley Subaru in the house!

Bobby also makes reverse lenses , FYI.

I made the hood prop from a section of TIG rod. Took a few tries, but it's not too hard.

Re: Hello From Michigan

Welcome. I actually did the sportbike engine on mine, and it's like trading one set of problems for another. Never mind the complete re-engineering of the entire chassis. I also wish I would have left it stock sometimes (I work on a golf course, so I would drive it on the cart paths every day.) Your...

Re: The fastest 360 in the wurllllllld, hailing from Chicago

You should look at OEM rear suspension from sportbikes on Ebay. They have similar mounting, and are compact. Nice, high-quality, adjustable damping. Although the springs may be super stiff because of the weight motion of a motorcycle swingarm. At least they are cheap. I think I sold mine for $5 or s...

Re: The fastest 360 in the wurllllllld, hailing from Chicago

Hmm, 400lbs is going to be awfully stiff on the front of a 360. I used a spring and a 1/3rd on top of each other to get 400lbs in the rear. Yes, I had the unique problem with this car of finding 2.5" ID springs with a rate LOW enough. Stance makes lower rated springs, but they are low by being longe...

That's some seriously respectable detailed stuff.
Looks like the motor went to a good home! I got a shower of putrid oil out of the plug wells as thanks for my efforts to get it to run after sitting since the 80's. Probably some sort of baptism around here I bet.

The fastest 360 in the wurllllllld, hailing from Chicago.

Greetings, My name is Brian. Some of you may have bought parts from me. I have a battered 69' sedan that was supposed to run in the 24 Hours Of Lemons series. Only the body shell is original. It's powered by a CBR954RR sportbike engine (150hp/75 ftlbs), and has 2 transmissions. Suspension is Geo Met...
