      • I think that's about 8 or 10 levels up...not next level.

            • I think he's probably got a a steering/header issue..........that linkage ate up a ton of space. I don't know about anyone else, but I've had that same issue a few times. Hopefully there is more than appears in the video.

                The lnkage doesn't necessarily pose a problem. The frame rails are quite close to the cylinder heads, though. I'm gonna have to build my own headers, which is always fun.

                  I knew you would have a solution. That might even be the opportunity for another episode. I'm liking the build a lot!

                    thanks. I'm looking forward to driving it. I think it's gonna be a lot of fun to go fast in. right now that truck has a 49/50 weight bias. I think when it's all together it'll be close to 50/50.

                    • The Blasphemi Drag Week episode is up on Motor Trend On Demand, It is pay to watch stuff there so no link here, sorry!

                      It runs for an hour and as yet I haven't watched it.

                      I'll give it a look and report if it's worth your $5 for a month subscription to watch it.

                            • I usually wait until the roadkill stuff shows up on youtube. But for this episode, I broke down and bought a subscription to Motortrendondemand. Wow, was it worth it! THis is the best Roadkill episode I've ever seen. Besides Blasphemi being awesome, Mike and Tony really worked their tails off, and overcame so many obstacles. MANY others would have thrown in the towel. ANd the production was great, with lots of suspense, and they accentuated the human aspect just as well as the mechanical stuff.
                              Mike, is Blasphemi still running that Mcleod RTX/street twin clutch?
