Like those wheels. So tell us more about the 1776? Is there a stock or a built trans in there. I been trying to get my 1776 into the 15's for a while.

So at 9.5 can you drive it or does it run hot? Mine is very close but only 8.5 with a 110 cam and 1.25 rockers and a 67 trans. Thanks for the info.

i run premium 93 always. was running a little warm so i added the oil cooler and took off the decklid. i will be putting back the decklid soon wth offset brackets. btw i drove it up to bugjam weekend which was about 800miles for the weekend and had zero issues.
