Eric Wheaton's 1966 Fastback

Dear Total Control,

...I like the car setup and Buttonwillow liked it too. I had run there about a month or so ago just prior to Mini-Nats as a shakedown weekend. Then, Mini-Nats and again the car worked well but it needed the power rack and pinion.

Well, Ray Boehne, our guy for this sort of stuff in Monterey recommended further Total Control Products, this time the power rack and pinion. That is coupled up with your engine compartment braces and adjustable upper control arms. What a combination!

The car has absolutely flawless power steering. And I mean flawless. The instant we fired it up, we had 3 turn lock to lock, vice the old "too many" and with a small wheel, too hard to turn under 10 mph. Not now. Now, it's smoother than a new car and of course with the married and tuned TCP components, it drives sweeter than ever.

Under the hood we have a 351W with Victor Jr. Heads and Victor Jr. Intake. A 600 cfm double pumper Holley with 10:1 compression and a flat tappet Isky cam. Bottom end has steel forged crank, H rods and forged pistons. Tried to make it bullet proof on the bottom end. Enough power to get out of its tracks. We have 16" Torque Thrust D's with Hoosier's. Versailles 9" with discs all around. The fronts have Stainless Steel discs and Spax adjustable shocks on the corners. It does handle well.

I ran both Sat and Sun at Buttonwillow, 4 sessions each day. ... the car trotted up to the gate each time unhesitatingly. Darn I love the reliability. Fix at home, fun at the track...

Again, a great add to the car. Thanks to you and your team for taking the time and energy to engineer a great product with style, function and fit. It literally fell into the car. Ray was quite happy with the install. Me, I was happy with the result...

Cheers,
Eric Wheaton
