  • Garage built Christmas gifts

    I put my new dynasty 200dx to good use the last few weeks building gifts for my relatives. I made my wife a wine rack, with the base being a rear brake drum from my '70 buick electra, and the post a diveshaft from my '98 z28. I wasn't sure how it was gonna work, but it came out sweet! I gave it to her today because we're gonna be out of town the next two days, and she absolutely loves it




    I made stainless steel tags for the dogs, keychains for my siblings, and countertop wineracks for the folks and grandparents, you can see those here: http://detroitwheeliedog.com/v-web/g...hristmas-gifts

    Being in my garage was better than fighting traffic, that's for sure!

          That wine rack looks nice. She should put you a new welder under the tree for that

                    Thanks! I've actually posted on here before, do the posts from the motorsports board and this board not add in together?

                    There's a lot of experience on these forums, and that one thing I'm lacking!

                      Never had luck with aluminum d/s's behind LS1's, I went through 2, and inland empire, and the stock one, switched out to a custom steel, worked well. Been through 3 rear ends too, a stock 10 bolt, and two moser 12 bolts.

                      Is your car stock, or modded?

                        It's modded, but the engine is stock. I've got a moser 9" in back, and I haven't been able to get the stupid thing dialed in. Fully adjustable suspension, and I just can't get rid of wheel hop. I think I'm gonna put a 10 bolt back under the car in the spring and sell it. I've got other things to worry about right now. I was hoping for 11s on a stock internal motor, and I got a 12.2 last year bumpin' off the limiter 3 times into seond and twice into third, so I think its there. But that was on the 10 bolt with 3.73 gears. I think the 9", even with 3.90 gears, is slower.

                        Here's a link to a "for sale" thread I had in the summer when I half heartedly tried to sell it, it's pretty much got the entire rundown and some pics:

                          the 2 are still separate for now (reason for having to register twice.) they are planing on connecting the 2.

                          Yep, lots of great guy's willing to give there time and experience. this place keeps ya learning.

                            The 9 inch is a far superior rear, I went 12 bolt due to not having exciter rings on 9 inch's when I needed a rear. 11's on stock internals is not that hard. What tires were you running? I found that et-street slicks, not the radials grab the best, but I have a 6 spd. What converter are you running?

                            And what Is your rear suspension setup? I happen to build custom f-body suspensions... Maybe I could give you some tips to get her dialed in... would hate to see you sell her.

                            edit: Just noticed that you have a tci 4200... never been fond of tci's on ls1's. Another thing is nitto's are ok, step up to a true drag radial or slick should help A friend of mine cut a 1.49 on a stock internal ls1 on mt et streets., and a good set of headers/y pipe (arh or qtp's)

                            Sweet car though...

                              yeah, 11's on stock internals isn't too hard, but I don't want to spend the money on the tb and intake. The mid length headers were needed because up until recently the car was lowered two inches. And I was hoping to do it on drag radials. I think I would be there with the ten bolt, and I'd be close with the 9". I really like the convertor, but I don't have any experience with anything else, so maybe ignorance is bliss. I drove it a ton last summer, I even took it on the power tour and got 21 mpg. This started as a fun side driver while I worked on the buick, but everytime I turn around I'm messing with the camaro.

                              I cut a 1.64 on the nitto drs with the ten bolt. I would pry try the et streets if i keep the car. I've got other stuff to work on though, and this thing has just been taking up too much time and space.

                              The moser never fit right. I've got a body mounted spohn t/a, and I ended up shortening it because the moser sits too far foward. I have double adjustable lcas, and I had to cut and reweld them shorter as well. I have an adjustable lower panhard, lca relocation brackets, qa1 12 way adjustable shocks, and now i have strano springs. I've jerked around with it all summer, and everytime I thought I had it, I didn't. If you've got any suggestions, let me know. If I try to get the 9" to work again this spring, I'll get back with you too, I appreciate it.
