            RE: CalTracs

            I am running them.I put them on last summer and I really like them ! The first time I took the car to the track I actually had to back them off a little,they were making the car bog off the line on street tires.
            My reaction times are almost perfect know,cut about two tenths off my sixty foot time.
            I bet they really would make a differance on a big motor / high HP car like yours.I am still running a mild motor / set up.
            The only complaint / draw back as far as I have noticed is a little more noise around town (clunking with the pivot hitting the leaf spring) This would go away if You back the adjustment off,I am sure.
            Beats the heck out of the old slapper bars I used to run! I always ran the old Lakewood style with the J bolts and all.
            These are definatly worth every bit of the cost !
            Hope that helps!

              Thanks E and everyone else who replied ordered mine today should be here next week. I ordered the single hole low prifile ones instead of the two hole racing ones though. Not sure I would agree with the high horsepower statement but thanks none the lessSmile Oh surely you did not run the blue lights on the traction bars as well
