i got a 79 lac cd single piston 12 batts and was thinkin bout shortening my lower trailin arms a 1 or 2 to shorten wheel base to obtain better pivot point for hopping? i cant seem to get it to hit higher than 38, when it was dbl i had it in the 50's

you lose inches when u do that.. it will pivot better and might even help to get on the bumper but u might be at 38 still just on or closer to the bumper... :cool:

well.. to be honest.. im not a guru like some on here.. but i will tell u this.. trying to make a caddy like that single pump is really hard.. based on the the weight distribution of the car and over all dimensions.. jut my opinion.. but u might need to go with a higher volume gear to get it working not sure what ur running now but bigger car u need more volume.. like i say just my 2 cents.. :biggrin:

Might try a prestolite plus and run 9 or ten batteries to the front.. other than that sounds like your set up is in line with what i was thinking.. i like the prestolite it is the best motor out there.. last forever and can take higher voltage all day

shortening the wheel base is a quick and easy way to get u on the bumper and in the 40's, but if ur wanting to get more than that, i wouldnt suggest that u do it
