Lol whats wrong with PVC? Just remove it and spray paint it black or something. Its actually a decent idea especially if you grind the 45 you have on the inside so no airflow is inhibited. the smooth circular characteristic of pvc is great for airflow. But if you are trying to look legit than ya, rip that sh*t out

I was thinking more along the lines of thin wall aluminum tube and some silicone elbows....less "flammability" overall.

Obviously what's there works...and has been raced that way for a while.

May be a while - truck is "winterized" and wrapped up in a big tarp outside to make room for another project in the shop at the moment, but I will share once it comes back in.

Truck is still wrapped up in winter storage, but...I have acquired a fire system and a Momo Corse seat for it.

Looking for some semi-metallic brake shoes currently (#514 shoe). Porterfield will make them up but $$$. Velvetouch seems to be out of the business. Anyone else go down this road yet?

I'm running Performance Friction carbon metallic pads. Probably not up to your specs though.

I think that PF is one of several good choices for the front...rear shoes are the "oddity". We of course could convert to rear discs, but for now checking out shoe options.

Just a quick update on "the truck". It's still wrapped up in storage, but...
I have acquired a fire system and a 3 qt. Accusump (OK, I kept them out of one of the sports racer's I sold to put them in the truck). I also bought a MomoCourse FIA approved seat (old 2002 date) to replace the aluminum seat for the driver (the AL seat will move to the passenger side). Finally, a good used set of Hoosier 225/45-15's have been purchased and are being treated with some Formula V - these will replace the old, hard Hancooks on the Centerline wheels.

Now just to get a couple of weekends at home with good weather and get this back into the garage for the upgrades. Two other cars are still filling that space, but one is be about ready to go back in the trailer (prepped and ready to race).

If/when I get it back in, I will see about the photos of the suspension as requested earlier in this thread.

Well...after much debate and regretfully, the truck will be listed for sale in the classifieds. No time to devote to it and I hate to see it sit in the trailer. Hopefully someone will get it, do the minimal prep needed and race it again....
