Thanks. Forgot to include the pict of the MC and prop valve together. No cutting of the 45 degree strut necessary with this MC, only the new notch just forward of the factory notch in the unibody frame flange.

I would think Scarebird would be good too. I believe they use the same components as BCCP except for the bracket. I think Scarbird is a fabricated piece and BCCP is one piece. I had a reference for BCCP that liked the setup and good support from Ben at BCCP so I went with him. It would be cheaper to put together a Scarebird setup with a little machining, a little more labor, and some parts sourcing.

BCCP offers a 5 lug kit also and use a fabricated bracket for that one. Gives you a bigger rotor and calipers=more stopping power but I believe the 4 lug setup should be plenty, just a little pumped up 215.

Also, didn’t want 5 lug front and 4 lug rear and didn’t want to go to the expense for new rear axles and brake mods. BCCP is doing new 5 lug axles and I talked to Moser and they will copy an axle you send in and make it to whatever lug pattern you want. I think they are both around $600-700 for a set. Also, BCCP is working on a disc conv for the rear.
