Mark,

Now that you’ve had some time to drive

Thoughts on the qa1 shocks?

Thoughts on the stealth gear set for 9”?

Mufflers too loud?

Thanks for the feedback?

And also the clutch and stock tremec shifter - no leaks, quiet, clutch holding?

I like the QA1 shock. Once I read the instructions they are easy to set up. I went with the softest valving. I forget where I had them for settings.

I have a OE Ford gear in this car. Set up by GearFX. Still loud.

The new mufflers are "Hot Rod" quite. I am still looking for something quieter, but I'm getting old and I am tired of loud cars. I have tinnitus from all the louds stuff I have done all my life. I want my hot rods to be quieter.

The Tilton street clutch works great. Smooth pick up, no rattles, good effort. I would buy it again. Nice parts.

I like the T56 Magnum stock shifter. Good throws, good effort. If you want it to feel like a gun bolt, take the trans to D&D Performance and have all the shift shoes swapped from nylon to brass! Feels great. You get some gear shift buzz but very solid feeling.

Mark,

Since you went away from the JRI’s I’m curious how the new setup is working out along with the mufflers.

First off, my roll bar is not legal for any type of racing. It is a solid anchor point for the shoulder belts for the 5/6 point harness.

I think the DSE subframe and the DSE sub frame connectors give the car a good feel and has been stiff enough for everything I do. The "Cage" is good enough to find the body if I crash it hard. I'm fairly sure if I have a big crash in one of these cars it will not be good.

If you are worried about safety buy a new car. Way safer. I have crashed both, and a new Camaro is way better in a crash than a 1969 Camaro.

Not a Camaro but you get the idea.
