there are other parts that the ultra wide comes with but these I think are the only ones that you need to make it wider. If anyone thinks of something els that he needs to do it just post it.

http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl/c....d.989/.f?sc=14 (i think these are only a set of 2 so you might need 2 sets)
http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl/c....d.996/.f?sc=14
http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl/c....d.991/.f?sc=14 (x-2)
http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl/c....d.988/.f?sc=14 not sure if you need these too

When you order the parts you should ask how many of each you need because some of these listings dont tell you how many they come with. I found a seller on ebay that would sell me everything that the ultra wide comes with for 80 dollars if you want I can try to find him again.

within the first few pages there is a post on how to make these things work. Just start reading or listen to me and get that shaft that I told you about............... What do you mean it doesnt cover the clutch?????

peewee im not totaly 100% on this but i think your problem is this the clutch bell bearing might be wrong. im prolly wrong. seriously it would really help if we could see a picture of your problem. some other things to check make sure your washer,spacers,shims are in the right places and it may be possible you need to remove a washer,spacer,shim. and 1 other thing 1/16th is .062 thousands of an inch im pretty sure you wont have problems running it like that aslong as more then half of the shoes are making contact make sure you have the correct shoes they could be too thick and that might be stopping the clutchbell.

I need some information on engine rebuilding. From what I read here my engine is shot. It starts a little harder than new and runs great for a few minutes than loses power big time and has little compression. I am wondering if I just need a piston and sleeve, or do I need to get bearings and connecting rod or any other parts. My dealer can get me the piston and sleeve for $30. I know I should replace the vx with an sh, but for now I thought I would try a rebuild. Any advice on how to go about this? Thanks.

uhoo that body looks sick im jealous. i just read that we are going to get the falcon line up with in the next 2 years its going to replace our crown victorias they were gonna start importing them in 07 but changing the right hand drive to left hand drive would be too costly and they wanted most of the budget to go into the focus. wish you ausies could drive on the right side of the road why be so diferent kjdfkjhfkjhdkjhdfkjh!!!!!! oh and i was wondering could you send me a baby kangaroo my kids would love that?

its the crank the big blocks use they dont use that extender nut the normal small blocks run , they are just long enuff for the clutch bell to go onto with making it longer.

so my stock .18 is not a SG crank. i was looking at a .21 SG crank motor for 65 bucks "2.5 h.p." @ 41,000 rpms its prolly not cranking that much h.p. but it would be an upgrade and it also says will fill 99.9% of 1/10 trucks and buggies it also has a slide carb its made by TOKI.

I'm just wondering whether or not the tmaxx shocks are a direct fit or do I need to modify something to make it work. my stock back shocks are busted and its time to upgrade.

Later

from what ive read t maxx shocks are compatible direct fit and in most cases you get 8 shocks so its worth it. i think my next shock purchase is going to be piggybacks.
