The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

Pinto with a straight axel???
« on: October 26, 2007, 12:19:07 PM »
Hello Group,
 Take a look at this link I found here on fordpinto.com and tell me what you think...
 Id this Pinto a mock-up?
 Looks like a straight axel in the front end shot.

That's not a real car, It's probably a fiberglass design/concept body for final approval before the dies are made for stamping the body panels, or preproduction show car.
It's on a turn table.

im sure this can be done. me and my old man talked about doing this to his 73 if we put the new motor in his car. (i doubt if we will do it to his car. just cant see him coming up with the energy to do it maybe on our next v8 pinto.) maybe well do it to my 83 302 ranger.

I smell a roots movement for a Pinto Gasser....nice built 351W with a hillborn FI setup, some fender exit headers barking from behind the front tires, maybe even a "pony" keg fuel tank under the front grille?  Neat ideas!
1 Pinto, 2 Mustangs, 2 trucks and an 07 Freestyle.  Maybe I should thin the herd a bit? My classic cars are for sale!  I live in Tucson, AZ :D

You wish you were working on your car?  MINE were 2000 miles away! Mine are now for sale and the AZ originals are rust-free.
