This is a general criticism of the aftermarket in general not directed at Flaming River in paticular with which I have no personal experience.

Beware of Vaporware! You may be looking at a prototype part until they get enough interest to actually build that new part they advertised or showed at a trade convention. New design is great, new part is better.

Jay early on, when our kit first came out, we used the 64-72 GM A body steering arm. When a car was lowered using the cut coil system and not the drop spindles there was noticeable bump steer. Since then I have designed a billet steering arm that puts the outer tie rod in a much better position to eliminate the earlier issues.

Our kit will be in Super Chevy very soon as a Tech install article. The test bed was Mr. Johnny's old Wagon. With our kit the old wagon turned out some very impressive numbers, especially for a car that was a daily driver and not set up as a corner carving animal. More of a real world test.

Flamming river is only 50 minutes from us and I have looked into sourcing some racks from them as well. I am surprised to see the add for the front kit in the magazine, just as Dave has said they may be testing the waters. A few weeks ago the tech department had responded back from an email stating that they had not had this kit on a car yet nor did they have photos, like I said this was a couple of weeks ago they could have things bolted up by now. I believe the price was 2300.00

I would be happy to discuss any and all questions that anyone may have.

Double shifts right, LOL, actually I'm kinda burned out on the float things for a while so they just sit, and the cruiser is up for sale. But I have one coming in a few weeks, that will use up time but it means $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for the Nova, so I can't turn that down!..

Jay,

I personal have not used the CBR kit but I have heard nothing but great things. Chuck has PM'd me info to also help build my own kit. He sound like he would give the shirt off his back to help another nova guy. The CPP kit is the kit NOGO built I believe. Maybe they made some changes to it? I really dont know. I am really excited to see the price tag that they will put on it though. I was told by a little birdie that the kit will be on sale when they do the CPP nova tour/event in march. Have you read the whole thread that NOGO wrote? Very intresting stuff in there I believe he tested a couple kits and was not impressed and thats what inspired him to creat one of his own. Some day I hope to have his kit or CBR on my car the only bad part is I have the wrong lower control arms for the CBR kit. It would suck to have to rebuy the lower arms.

P.S. Wonder if arts car will be going to the nesxt BBQ? I would like to think mine will drive by then but its way to far to drive my frankenstine
