When I built the car the first time, it was with stock brakes, mild 302, four speed. The engine never ran well, the T-10 didn't get along with the Hurst Competition Plus shifter, and the car peg legged and would wheel hop. Now, the engine sounds wonderful, will pull like there is no tommorrow, the shifter/5-speed work great, and the car stops like you dropped a boat anchor! 75 mph is around 2200 rpm, I feel like I could drive it across country without getting tired!
Only gripe is with the clutch... being a dual friction diaphragm style clutch, with the helper spring under the dash, the clutch pedal tries to stick to the floor at high rpm shifts in the lower gears. I guess I will have to go under the dash and try to get the spring loose... other than that, it is great!
