Ahhh, that Bob. He thinks Terry's car would make a good car for running shine. You know...a true "sleeper" that cops would never look twice at.

Bob,

Man I am really now going to have to give this some very-serious-consideration, honest.

Bob,

I bet you would be right there in person if that did take place.

Paul,

I couldn't agree more with your logic.

LOL,

Jeff,

I really don't recall the weight.

I'm sure mine being the 20" and also pretty wide they are not light weight.

To be honest with you in my case I was not all that concerned over their weigth.

I wanted a certain look and I also wanted the company to be a name that went back to my younger years.

Same for the tires ^^^


Terry

Terry,
I think it would be very valuable for others who may be looking for Ideas on how to personalize their car, to see a Current Mod List on your car.
The alternative of going back through your Thread containing 8,484 Posts is just too large of a Task, IMO.

And then, behind each item on your list, you could add a link to the exact Post in your Thread where that item appeared.

Terry.... One of those first shots showed some interesting suspension setup. Is all of that from brennspeed? If so, I need to check it out. looks to be a nice setup. I'm assuming that setup is for hard drag launches and not necessarily for track/autox.

Any info on that is appreciated.

Ron,

I do know exactly what you are saying and maybe I will take the time to provide that to everyone in the future.

The "Current Mod List" I might be able to pull off.

Linking all the Mods to each specific post is going to take a very-very-long-time for me to do.

I will however consider it and I appreciate you mentioning it.

Rodney,

Yes Brenspeed brought that rear set-up to my attention some time back.
It is primarily for traction going in a straight line as you guessed.

It also has the BMR front suspension.

It also "Now" has the BMR welded "Sub-Frame-Connectors"

I do have the camera back with all those last changes to the "tigermachine II".

Very, very nice, Terry.

Just a question: why not drag radials as your main tire?

You is gonna spin those suckers with 1/3 throttle in every gear!

I spoke with Brenspeed a couple days ago and they recommended Nitto Drag radials.

I'm going to Mustang Memories in a couple of weeks and thinking of getting a set just for that purpose.

Thoughts?

I know you like the MTs because of yesteryear. Are the Cragars still around, too?

I Know for Every Mod you performed, there was a lot of investigation and consideration performed.
I believe it would be Valuable to those who are just starting with their Bullitts to know what you have decided.


You're not DONE, right?
Starting with your {current} Mod-List, and then updating it for any future Mods you {might} do, would be valuable to the future modders, IMO.

Bob,

A bunch of people do run the Nitto tires.

I have nothing personally against the Nitto Brand tires.

I just know as a "Fact" no other tire manufacturer has a Drag Radial that hooks like the M/T.

Now that I said the above here is what else I (Think).

Drag Radials just Do-Not hold up on the street.

That's not my opinion that is like the 3-4-5 M/T guys I talked with on running them on my Street Mustang the Bullitt known to many as the "tigermachine II".

Get out on the interstate at say a constant 70 MPH and they will HEAT up and that HEAT will wear them out with hardly any miles on them.

I'm not done yet buddy.

Also check the specs and you will notice where a normal street tire has something like 10/32" and some 11/32" new.

Drag Radials have like as I recall 6/32" new.

So any wear at all will certainly take off 2/32" of tread depth.

Now one is left with what ???

4/32" of tread depth !!!

Trust me when I say this that is a tire or tires looking for immediate freaking DISASTER ............

Try to picture in your mind running into any sort of a Damp, Wet Condition, much less any rain.

No thanks I'll just stick with street tires meant for long miles and Ultra High Speed and that will also be very capable of driving in the rain.

Plus they last long enough one at least feels like they got some darn use of their initial cost.

The M/T 20" 305/35-20 Radials are $800.00 dollars for two.

That's just the tires not taking them and having them mounted and balanced, taxes etc.

You can take this next comment Buddy to the Bank.

If I even remotely thought I could get away with running those it would have already taken place.

M/T point-blank told me more than a few times, (Don't try to run those on the Street) !!!

I'm hard-headed and I have screwed up some things by being that way.

Like me insisting Brent getting George to install those Roush Hood-Struts on my Carbon Fiber Seibon hood.

Seibon had already told me not to do it !!!

But, I wanted them so I told Brenspeed I don't give a Rat's Ass what they say put them on mine.

Guess what happened ???

Bowed the Brand New Seibon Hood as I was already told not to do.

Luckily the Roush Hood Struts were only on it for a short time.

Once they were removed and the Bullitt was taken back to Eric at the body shop it all worked out very well.

I only use the above as an example that I will override something if it is not to Crazy.

But after I just wore out the guys at M/T and after reading all I could find On-Line I decided (Not) to try to run the Drag Radials.

Maybe I should also mention this to you.

I had already ordered those tires and they had come in to Discount Tire right here where I live.

So when I say I wanted to run them trust me I am serious.

It took a lot for me to back-off and place that call to my guy at Discount Tire and tell him I made a what ??? ........ Mistake !!!

So now you know what I have done and why I made my final decisions on running Drag Radial's on the Street.

Did I forget to mention the time I ran the Toyo R888 Proxes ?????????????

Do you now recall me doing that ???

That was a Joke as they threw crap all up under the car just driving out of my subdivision.

And it was not even in full blown summer.

The rubber compound is so SOFT they pick up everything !!!


Good-Luck if you pursue running them.
Terry
