All I know is the class has to do with the size of the Rear Slicks (10" slicks or 10.5") not sure.. and the Front clip from the firewall forward must be the original chassis of that car being used. I think the rest of the car can be a tube chassis.

It isn't the same class as an Outlaw 10.5, but I do have the requirements for ADRL Extreme 10.5.

I haven't seen much '79 Camaros being built Drag Cars. Great to see one. And that frame construction looks very good, really great scratchbuilding. Can't wait to see more, very interesting subject.

Got a small update, the front suspension is getting there but I still have a pretty good amount of work to do. Upper a-arms and engine plate are done. I also finished the front of the chassis and shortend the frame... Thanks Brett and Niko. Brett I haven't decided if I will keep the t-tops or not, they kinda look cool in there.

Thanks Thumper and Tyrone... The a-arm's were a pain :angry:, since i didn't have anything else I actually had to use stainless steel nails and cut both ends off, then bent them to shape.

Nails... that had to be a pain. The look great. Did you use a jig to make them symmetrical?
