Yeah, we still like to drive our race cars. Show up to the track, race em, and drive home while everyone else loads up on the trailer.....most of the time. Other than the few tow truck trips home. :lol:

I WISH! I still have to mini tub it. I will take pics along the way though. Tubs will be coming right up to the edge of the seat.

Just remembered you posted that you have Hooker 2129's, they won't fit with the Hardy mounts. The main reason I made the switch to a motor plate. If you want to make the switch I think I only paid $150 for the plate from S&W and about another $100 for the limiter kit from Bickle. Not too big of an expense if you can make and mount the brackets.

Damn, already ordered urethane mounts for the hardy mounts. Where does the clearance issue come into place on the 2129? Plan on running a different crossmember. Could it be made to fit with a little hammer therapy?

Sanderson's can be made to work with the Hardy mounts, but Hooker 2129's require front of the block mounts.
2129's also require mods to the stock K-member, Sanderson's do not.

Put them on eBay, I was in the exact same boat lol. Sold mine on eBay almost immediately.

Smiley is right, my Sanderson's fit no problem with Hardy mounts and hookers required light modifications to K member.

I don't think hammer therapy will work lol.

Decent delay box, but if you bought it used, check all the outputs thoroughly when you first hook it up. The internal relays can be damaged from improper wiring or components(shorted out trans brake solenoids are common). I scored the nearly new damaged Mega 450 I use in my drag car as a straight swap for my ancient Dedenbear RTD-7. Trans brake output was fried, but they have an extra relay on board designated SFO(selectable function output) that can be configured as trans brake. Someday I will take it apart and solder in a new $5 relay to make it fully operational again.
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.35@146.19)(5.94@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (retired)
06 Haulin' 20ft enclosed car transporter
93 Suburban- 350/4L60(retired)
00 Saturn SW2- wife's car
01 Saturn SC2- younger son's project
00 Saturn SL2- daughter's car
98 Saturn SW2- spare
and 3 more Saturn "parts cars"
Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....
