Every aspect of our Project White Wagon is crucial, and what we’ve learned over the course of this car, is just how crucial of a role the front will play in this junkyard basket case turned highly tuned Super Stocker.
Chassis builder Tom Lukans of TL Race Cars said preparing this area of the car has been every bit as demanding, if not more, than the rear. High precision products now occupy the area between fenders once occupied by an oak tree.
“The front end is a lot more crucial than some might believe,” said Lukans. “It’s just as important on a Super Stocker as it is on a Pro Stocker or Pro Mod. At speed that front end needs to be where it is supposed to be at. It cannot be all over the place. The caster and camber has to be where it is supposed to be. The correct components on these cars, especially the faster cars have to be a lot more precise than what the auto manufacturers built the cars for. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out when Chevrolet created our wagon in 1964, they never envisioned it running this quick and fast.”
