well from what i was told and what i did was reinforce the rear arches ( c sections) ...also the rear end and the frame rails of the car....but once this is done you should be able to even stand 3 depending on the car and your setup......for a good 3 you need at least 12-14s in the back...8s up front will be fine......24vts will be pretty slow...id say at least 36......but then again it all depends on the car

You can do rolling 3s with 12v in the back, as long as the weight is there. I am running 4 batts , 2s2p (24v) and it does good rolling 3s but wont hold a standing 3.

dont forget to notch out your frame ... i procrastinated ...and now i gotta drop $125 getting my driveline retubed and balanced.. and thats price over the phone and i get real lucky ...

and like slammed lincoln said .. 12's to 14's in the rear .. i have two pumps on the rear of my impala .. but impalas should dump into a 3 with proper wieght dist..

also you will want a heavy duty carrier bearing .. and enuff slip in the shaft so you dont push the yoke into your transmission

carrier bearings are behind the yoke in the frame you gotta undo the two bolts in the center of the frame and pull out the drive line to get to it ... stock carriers break pretty easy ..

as for drive shaft slip ...you gotta measure from the 2nd and third ujoint in the rear section of the drive line ...measure it locked up and measure it again laid .. and see how much diffenrece there is ...and some room for error and you know how long the slip needs to be as well as how much tube is gonna be left on with slip joint in

That is not true, not the 12V, 24volts yes.

yes both true. i believe there are a few ways of measuring for the slipyolk. i believe there is a section in the tech area that talks about measuring driveshaft length. if not look it up on the web. as far at the notch goes u have to cut out a section of the fram where the driveshaft comes out of the back of the X, u will see when u lift the car with the driveshaft in it will contact that point. i think there is a notch of about 2 or 3 inches cut outta mine. but again im only running 10inch in my 63.
hope that helps
