what did you call me ? ok maybe I did live on Haight st.S.F in the 60's, but I did clean up some and moved to Berkely where I bought my first new car,my 73 charger. It was not off the show room floor.I special ordered it.I wanted all the best hiperf. options without all the decals and other crap. I even had the dealer remove all labels and insignias,just a clean top banana fusalage.I have since invested 53,000$ just in parts to make it one bad ass road racer. Should be done by june.I love the .96 bars, their just soft enough to keep on a ruff road.Nice burnout,nice charger. In the old days we called that cookin yer tail. Happy holidays Les (mororles).

the very best of the burnouts allways ended with two strips of sparks comming from where the tires used to be (4th of july posi fry ) best done at night ...

are the bars installed in the car or sitting on the shop floor ? I think the way it works is like this , - when the bars are put under torsion (twist from being installed they will be straight ) but if they are installed already and tweaked ... don't know
