LAME HORSE RACING
This site is mostly focused on the
development of my three cars: a '66 Formula S Barracuda, '66 270 series/B
Production Dodge Dart, and '66 "C" code/C Prepared Mustang, for vintage
road racing and SCCA SOLO competition. Also, when I run across good specific
parts sources, I will post them here.
has a CAST reproduction of the
Commando piston for $55.00 each. There may be some
discussion as to whether a casting is correct (and these are
heavy), but that price aint bad compared to $40.00 each for
the 8,8:1 MOPAR casting.
I've noticed that its
getting hard to get good shocks for A body
Chryslers (for those of us who like to carve corners anyway),
at the same time I've found a shock that I really like in the
adjustable Spax shock from the UK. I've used them on Ol'Beastly
(My Mustang) with great success, and they've been very good on
the GoldFish so far. You can find the Spax Website is at:

The part numbers are Front: G480, and Rear: G481
The listing is for "Chrysler Australia:
Valiant (all models)"
