    Great job Jim …. !!!! for the old timers .. LOL >> look at the tiny RF spring in Emerlings car …. not like years ago with the 400’s …LOL …
    these new super soft springs only enough to hold car up..
    then she drops right to the ground and super expensive shocks
    hold Her to the track.. frame rails close to 1/8 or 1/4″ off the track …
    it’s not your Daddy’s Modified with 400’s in front and 175 – 200 in rears ..
    technology has found it’s way into the Oldest Division in NASCAR…
    i have been learning these soft spring big bar set up for last few years..
    you gotta relearn quite a few things … with pull down rigs etc etc… .
