Nine (9) Inch Rear Set Up
by Joey Bell

After breaking my second 8.8 inch rear end racing Wild Street in Bowling Green, Ky., I sent the car to Bell Chassis and Fabrication for what would end up being a full back halve. Here is the 9” rear end with the Chris Alston 4-link brackets on the jig before tig welding.

   I went with a Strange Aluminum center section with 4.88 gears and 35 spline axles.
My previous best 60’ was a 1.37, the 4-link would get me a 1.23 on the rear tires, and unfortunately I had to abort that run. The usual 60’ times were in the 1.26-27range with the 4-speed transmission.
