    Before this car i was building a 1949 chevy truck that i ended up giving up to build this nova, i will post a pic of the truck here for you all to see as well. I took the drivetrain from this truck and used it in the nova.

    I used a 77 camaro subframe and then built my own frame in the back and had a ladder bar coilover set-up. By the way, this car was registered to drive on the street. The license plate said 6TEASE6, the car is now in Lodi somewhere.

    The mustang set up isn't large enough for the weight of the vehicle. I would never down size the braking on a vehicle that is getting close to 1300hp under the hood.

    i had a '49 Chevy too. here's a pic of ours right after we brought it home. at this point, the rollback was still in the driveway. paid $200 for it.

    had a 12 bolt out of a Blazer or K10 out back, and a 350/350.

    some heavier coils, and one of the many aftermarket brake setups on it and call it good.

    That still leaves a very small spindle and bearings and a very small A-frame.

    with 1300hp on tap, are you really driving it on the street? i would assume probably not, at which point, small bearings, and small a arms mean low weight and low rotating mass.

    Yes, it was going to be street driven as it was registered and had license plates on it.

    The plate on the Nova was 6TEASE6 and the truck was NSANETY
