  1. These S76 weld wheels need to find a new home. They’re 17x8 and will fit an rt. I ordered the wrong freaking ones🤬. I needed ones for an srt8. I’m willing to take a $300 dollar loss on them , so I’d take 800.00. Shipping would be extra. If anyone is interested just shoot me a message or text me at 4172981522 Tires are not included. Thanks Bruce
  2. Price dropped to $600.00
  3. Price dropped to $750.00. These will fit an rt charger/challenger/300 lx
  4. HHP

    I deleted all my posts dealing with this issue. Just disregard any negative statements in regards to your company. I was just ticked with all the money that I had already spent and now will have to spend more to make it right. Hope theirs no hard feelings. Bruce
  5. HHP

    I deleted my previous post. I accidentally ordered the wrong front wheel. I didn't know that once a tire was mounted on the rim, then it was mine. I never looked in the box, other than to see what the wheels looked like. It clearly states, in bright orange, that once it's mounted, they're mine. I didn't see that until I had the tire removed today. My only gripe is that the person I talked to at HHP acted like it was no big deal, they would just sell me another set at the same price. I understand that it's not their responsibility to cut me a special deal or anything like that, but it sure would of been nice if they offered something, instead of being indifferent and telling me that I could just sell mine on line. Anyway, I probably shouldn't of posted anything and just left things as they were.
  6. Interested in a original version of the ARS GT 500 tensioner. The newer version does not fit.
  7. Barely used ARS tensioner with 38# spring - Price- 300.00 6 rib Aluminum PS pump pulley. It’s used but looks good. Price - 75.00
  8. Price reduced to 1500.00
  9. sold Bogart Rims: 10x17 and 5x17 Hoosier Slicks: 28.0/10.0-17 M&H Racemaster: 4.5/26.0-17 Price is 1500.00 for everything Shipping? If interested send me a text at 4172981522
  10. Made it to the track yesterday and finally put down some consistent times. Ran several 10.9x passes and a couple 10.8x passes. My best pass was a 10.82 @ 124 mph with a 1.57 60'. I had to put about 175 pounds in the trunk to get good traction and I had my slicks down to about 17 psi. I also had my stock rims/tires up front...wish I had my skinnies on. If I tried to go any lower on the pressure it got too squirrelley on the top end. I need some advice for what I can do to my suspension for a better launch. Currently I have lakewood 70/30 shocks up front with V6 springs. The rear is stock with the exception of solid cradle bushings. I'm sure track prep could of been better. My best pass to date was a 10.73 @ 128 mph with a 1.78 60'. That was about a month ago and I had my skinnies on with my slicks (about 18 psi) and about 75 pounds in the trunk. The outside tenp was probably about 10- 15 degrees cooler than my recent trip to the track. Just needing some tips on what I can do.
  11. Do you remove the front sway bar? I'm thinking that this may help me a bit. Gonna give it a try once I get my car back. Recently went from a 6 rib to an 8 rib setup and also relocated my tensioner and added 3 more idler pulleys to get more belt wrap on all the major pulleys. Should be getting it back this week.
  12. There is a link in my edited post above that has the picture. It's my last post in that thread.
  13. Hey Guys, Finally took the next and final step in my build. Cars at BFNY getting a fully forged 393 installed with a 2.9L whipple, and fore fuel system. Transmission will be upgraded by Enhanced Transmission and it's rated to 800 rwhp. I currently have a BB 8.8 with 3.73 gears, CF DS, and 1400 HP axles. Will be changing gear ratio to 3.23. Also decided to have a 5 point cage installed. Actually that was my wifes request, but probably not a bad idea. Should be some where around 14 psi and on 91 octane it should make 650 or so rwhp. Just wanted to thank Kenneth Garner for the killer deal on the motor, SC, and fore fuel setup. Also, want to thank Erik (Hemi 31) for everything that he is doing for me. AJ will be doing the tuning. Here's a link for the initial startup https://youtu.be/Uystx7RQkkc
  14. https://www.lxforums.com/board/showthread.php?t=384950&referrerid=10955 Picture is in my last post. For some reason I can't get my picture small enough for it to allow me to post it.
  15. Relocated my belt tensioner to the upper passenger side of the block and it’s bolted to the bracket in the original location that the adjustable idler pulley was located Added 3 idler pulleys: between the crank and alternator, between the wp and ps pulley, and one just above the ac pulley Now all the major pulleys have at least 50% belt wrap. There should be no more belt slipping Also went from a 6 rib to 8 rib setup. The tensioner is from a 5.7 hemi and the reason we used that is because it applies tension in the opposite direction, as opposed to the others ( GT 500 and ARS) I’ve used. Hoping I can put this issue to rest once and for all. Trying to see if I can post a pic.
  16. Going to upgrade from a 6 rib to a 8 rib setup. Hoping that will cure some of my issues ( snapping belts and tensioner bouncing). I also recently increased the size of some of the idler pulleys to give me more belt wrap. Would like to make it to the track soon to see if I can pull off a 10.5 sec run.
  17. I talked to someone at whipple and he told me that I needed to order the 8 rib pulley made for the camaros because they have the same offset. Hope that's right because I already placed my order. I'm hoping that by upgrading to the 8 rib kit this will solve my belt issues ( snapped a gates green HD belt after only being on for maybe 6 months and 1,000 miles). Also still have some tensioner issues, but the GT 500 tensioner with the adapter plate has worked fairly well. Maybe with the new 8 rib kit my tensioner issues will also be solved too.
  18. Have you done anything to the suspension to get those 60' times?
  19. The plastic idler pulley adjacent to the water pump pulley is too narrow. I ordered a dayco steel pulley that's almost twice as wide and about the same circumference. I am also using the GT 500 tensioner with the adapter plate. That combo seems to be working pretty good. I'm not sure why the ARS tensioner did not work as well for me. Those tensioners (street and race version) have significant more spring pressure, so I can't explain the better results with the GT 500. Bruce
  20. Was your suspension pretty much stock?
  21. I was able to completely disable the TC with the trinity. Not sure what the issue is. Is there any advantage of activating the TC after your burnout?
  22. Pulled off a 10.73 sec pass @ 128 mph with a 1.78 60'. That was my best pass of the night and my first pass. I got the new slicks and my burnout was mediocre at best....having trouble with my race tune not completley disabling my TC. My second pass was 11.01 and the remaining 2 passes were duds. I think the track prep was decent to start, but as the night went on it stated to get slick. Does anyone enable their TC after after they do their burnout? My last pass I got half way down the track and lost all my boost. I hope my new bypass valve didn't crap out on me.
  23. Ever since the install of the 8.8 I've had issues with diff fluid spewing all underneath the rear of my car. I had Erik change out my gears a year ago and I finally got around to changing the fluid for the first time. When I drained the fluid there was about 1 quart that came out. It should hold 1.8 quarts, so after about 3000 miles I lost almost a quart of fluid. I looked around on the internet and found a possible solution. I used an inline fuel filter and installed it backwards on the end of the vent hose. I cut about half the hose off so the filter would be sitting vertical and any fluid that is trapped in the filter can drain back into the housing. I just put this on not to long ago, so we'll see how it works. I know some people use a catch can, but this will be much better if it works.
