i'v been kicking around the notion of awd for a long time. it does have some clear advantages. i am building my budget for my 430 but i don't want to have traction issues. this would be solved with a set of slicks of some kind. but i'm a car guy and i can pick out the sleepers rather easily. so how do i get traction without the dead givaways. my answer is awd. i love the bfg ta, but i'll spin the tread off in a few passes. my regal is a 1980 turbo sport coupe... without the turbo or an engine. the frame is in really bad shape (totally rusted through). and a crappy spraybalm paint job. i have my 430 plan, but if i'm going to make my ultimate sleeper i want it my way! i just want to see the looks on racers faces when i skipp the water blocks. i'm also planning a factory exaust with header dumps in the past i have done similar projects. like my old ford bronco. 1978 diffs and frame with an 1987 body. the hardest thing seems to be the engine.
