Lol. I'd almost forgotten about the ham sandwiches. You should see what I have in the garage now... in non-running condition, of course. :D

I visited Drew while I was in Texas in May and got to...

The two places they work best (hindsight being 20-20) is in the differential mount and the rear trailing arms (not toe links).

I did research adding HUD to the car, but there wasn't enough room beneath the gauge cluster hood for the Corvette module and it's driven by the PCM,...

Because the vast majority can't afford a C6 Z06 outright. Even a low priced C6 Z costs $35k or more, but an FD rolling chassis costs almost nothing these days and so do GTO LS2 pull-outs. Then you...

It was a Harbor Freight 20-ton press, but it was the A-frame model and didn't have enough clearance to remove the inner control arm bushings the way you did. Both ways work, so I guess I'm missing...

Ouch, "Double the HP of what you wish yours will never ever make". It's no "Moneys can buy a head of the neck", that's for sure, but it'll do.

Let's start from the top.

There is no company or business called Hinson Supercars. Until Brian gets a business license and/or forms an LLC, "HSC" is as real as unicorn tears from a legal...

Noise concerns, mostly. Like the Factory Five Cobra mounting system it was modeled after, it had a rigid rear mount. Justin Samberg's version uses "batwing" brackets bolted to the rear of the housing...

For all intents and purposes, Lane Culver is "HSC". His father owns the shop they work out of and Lane produced all of Brian's parts. Brian is merely the figurehead and "sales" arm of the operation....

Legally, "Hinson Supercars" doesn't exist beyond a web site, a couple forums, and Brian's imagination. There is no business license for...

They're both made from Nylon.

Nylon is an acetal plastic. Although it can compress slightly it doesn't take kindly to sharp blows, so stop whacking them together. ;)

Depends on the condition of the bushings. Since I haven't sold them for 6+ years, they could be anything up to 8-9 years old.

Keep the trailing arm and diff bushings if they're in good shape....

Poman resurrects the horse frequently. He also uses the ship metaphor frequently. I'm beginning to suspect that he's not a deep thinker. ;)

Justin's engine cradle is directly based off mine. I provided him with an original cradle and waterjet cut templates, and he modified the design to be different than the "Dynotested" cradles.
