Topics I've Started

6-lug space saver wheels?

01 February 2018 - 06:33 AM

I'm on the hunt for narrower rims to use at Bonneville, and I'm wondering if any of you folks know if ANY application used a 15" space saver wheel with out lug pattern?  I've read about options online but never find any at the local salvage yards.  Plus its -25F here right now.  Not junkyard weather.  A 4" wide rim would be ideal, but narrower will work too.  5" is a litte too wide - I have those brand new from Cragar.

Thanks in advance for any leads - aluminum or steel.  

Survey: what tire/wheel size do you run?

Just wondering what everyone is using.  

Race truck: 15x25x5" Goodyear Frontrunners

Parts truck (being built) 205/75R14s with 80's Nissan alloy rims for now.  


What do you have, and how much have you lowered your truck?

1983 Gran Sport camper?

I'm more of a 620 guy, but a 720 Gran Sport camper conversion just popped up locally.  Cheap.  Anyone familiar with them?  

double/stretch cab dually!

Some of you may remember last year I went to go buy this truck, and it has been passed around a couple times since.  Lots of rust, many issues, did not run.  


A few weeks ago I met the new owner at Cars and Coffee and have been helping him get it running better.  Just finished a distributor rebuild, and I straightened out a new warped intake manifold he installed that had a couple open vacuum ports.   :blush:


At this point its actually drivable, and it holds an idle, despite having a Redline Weber conversion (worst of all the Webers).  He's now contemplating an LS swap... and a hood scoop.  Hopefully I can get it tuned soon so he no longer wants to cut it up.  



Bonneville Speed Week

15 June 2017 - 08:18 AM

Anyone who wants to stop by and say "hi!" or lend a helping hand, we'll be racing at Bonneville from August 12th-18th, unless we set a record, break, or get tired of trying and leave early.  


If you're not familiar with the venue at the salt flats, the pits are located about 6-7 miles from the start lines, off to the left of the long and short courses.  We'll be racing the short course, off to the far right as you're driving in, unless we break 150 mph.  Yeah, right!  


Hotel rooms are almost all booked at the Wendover casinos, but there are a couple rooms left.  Come Tuesday rooms are cheap and plentiful, but all the excitement is Saturday and Sunday on the long course.
