Yes, no A body handled well, but F bodies were arguably created to handle. I had a 79 Trans Am and it would swap ends at the drop of a dime. The 91 was MUCH better. My 305 TBI beat the pants off the 350 LT1's, but we already went there!Yep. F body. Said A didn’t I? None of those handled great stock. Mind is a bit off today
I was meaning to ask you about caridWhen you shop our large selection of performance suspension parts, your Toyota Matrix will handle and ride better on any terrain and stay level regardless of the load.www.carid.com
No wonder why we never saw that many GTO's at the track when we were young!As they say at Fender America, el' zilcho senor
Yep. The factory HP and Tq that a Ram Air GTO, 4 speed puts out, is more suited to a Dana 60.No wonder why we never saw that many GTO's at the track when we were young!
Even with good axles, C-clip eliminator, Pro gears, heavy duty posi unit, and rigid rear cover, we would still sell the used gear sets at Carlisle after every 150 passes or so. The housing assembly was just not strong enough to maintain proper gear clearance and alignment. This was with big slicks in a low 10's bracket car (66' Chevelle).
A few of our friends used Dana's and didn't have nearly as many issues.
Saw plenty of 10-bolts break way back when.
One time a guy sheared off all the lug nuts in a fast Nova at the launch and nearly took down the tree.
Yep. A little work and the 305 could be fun. Mine had a quadrajet that I swapped out for an Eddy with a performer intake and headers. No major modifications to the engine other than pulling all the heavy emission and AC stuff off. Only did headers to get rid of the smog tubes coming out of the manifolds. Car would roast the tires for 2 city blocks without an issue.Yes, no A body handled well, but F bodies were arguably created to handle.

My 200 Trans Am handled like a slot car!
But my 2020 Grand Cherokee wouldve killed em all!
But I want a go cart!!!I did a full brake job on the Mustang when I got it. I went with Powerstop for the pads and rotors and Centric for rebuilt calipers. Rayspestos for all the soft lines. Rotors seem decent. I’ll agree with Jim. Buy a decent name brand rotor or from a store with a good reputation. The kit you linked is probably ok. Cheep rotors are not worth the headache. My dad went that route last time and they were warped out of the box.
I’d be careful using coil overs on a daily driver. The wrong set can make a car extremely harsh.
My kids Miata had coil overs on it when he got it. They were not that old and the car was stored indoors. Even so, The adjuster but was completely frozen on one of them. They were lower end parts. They were also extremely stiff which made the car very unpleasant to ride in. We ended up putting the stock ones back. With all this in mind, if you do go this route, put the best parts you can afford on it.But I want a go cart!!!
Just a slightly larger one. It’s only a toy. Not really a daily, although I have been driving it a lot lately. I “can” drive my Vibe too.
