Bravo! Well done both of you!!!

These cars with the Pontiac Super Duty Motors were a genleman's express, comfortable and surprisingly fast. Now with the roll cage you do kind of lose the sleeper image.

It is good if you stabilize the comm. These Chinese built motors were pretty fast but the comm easily rotates on the shaft, causing major explosions. We used the motor in D3 racing along with the slower Falcon 5, but it was a risk as you had a 50/50 chance of major pouf. In fact these and the inconsistency of the Falcon 5's is what made us going to a specific D3 motor with tighter tolerances. The secret for the Slick-7 motor is to put some epoxy between the comm and the stack so that the comm cannot turn. After that, the risks are reduced quite a bit.
