80's NASCAR front suspension
Posted by Road Warrior78 on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 9:02 AM

I have 1980's NASCAR GM chassis (Regal, Grand Prix, etc). When I was building the front suspension I decided to install a pair of front springs from a NASCAR Thunderbird. I noticed that the front spindles were higher than the rears. When I put the kit-supplied body on (I plan to use a different body) everything fit ok. Is this due to the way the model was cast?

Do yourself and the rest of the world a favor. Go build something!

No, this is due to the Ford and GM kits being totally different. You'll have to cut down the springs if you want to use them. Most GM teams did not use them though which is why they aren't in the GM kits.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)
