OK, I'll take a shot at it...

The instructions show the torsion bar lever locating on the radius rod mount on the axle - center up the axle on the chassis and it should line up where it is supposed to go.  That will also move the end of the steering arm outbaord of the frame where it will connect to the drag link

In Topic: New Revell NASCAR kits

At this point, Revell has to be checking to see if any NASCAR noise turns into sales numbers.  No sales, they tried and no interest..  Good sales, hope they do some more.  Makes sense to me.

Yeh, I'm a Chevy fan, but I'll pick up a couple of the Penske Fords... (did I say that out loud?)

With today's NASCAR, I bet the chassis will fit under that resin Chevrolet SS resin body real nice.

 

Best case is that a little interest in the NASCAR kits will get Revell thinking about some new drag racers - Pro Mod, Pro Stock, Funny Car - or - just as cool, some ALMS kits (say Corvette!)

Gotta love that black wagon - Can remember when big block full size Chevy wagons with all the toys were darn near required for drag race tow vehicles - with a four speed for when your street car also needed to be cool.. or had to deal with the local kid in a Mustang...

 

Later with young family, had a '67 Caprice wagon with a 325 horse 396 - black with wood and gold inside. 14 mpg, regular gas.  great go to the beach car - could be going 40 on the two lane hwy behind some gutless 4-cylinder and when the opportunity to pass.. stand on it move left and it would be at 70mph before it got even to their back bumper with no drama.  Learned that it's way easier to find parts if it had been a Camaro...  Of course when I sold it, the parts I needed to fix the automatic AC showed up...
