Chassis stiffness is another consideration in the overall performance of your car, and items like subframe connectors, torque boxes, and a roll cage can affect your suspension in a positive way. The less a car flexes, the more the suspension can do what it&rsquo s supposed to. Subframe connectors are available in bolt-in style, or can be welded in place. For the best stiffening, frame connectors from US Car Tool are form fitted and welded to the car&rsquo s floor, creating a complete box frame section. In extreme applications a roll bar, or roll cage, will tie the chassis together offering overall stiffness to the suspension and safety to the driver.
That day, Kris Tadey was post-rugrat, somewhere in his seventh year, and probably hadn&rsquo t even a vague notion of a &lsquo Cuda 995. But with heavy emotional ties to Hamtramck, he decided early on that Chevys and Fords sucked basic, and he grew quickly into the Mopar doctrine.
An ignoramus created this post.
1. The cover photo is of some sort of Mustang GT or better.
2. The add for the 8217 75 Cuda is actually a 8217 71 Cuda.
Also, my opinion on the new Cuda is that it is over priced and the updating gives away the style. The front end especially looks blah, looks more like a new Camaro, and I would not buy it. The only styling that represents original is the center front grille support rib, the side rear windows and to a slight extent the rear tail lights. Other than that, it sucks in comparison to the original. Not worth the cost. The only advantage is that having thousands of these new versions on the road will not in any way detract from the value of the originals. Hurray!
Top pic is a Mach I Mustang customized. Only thing missing is the horse coral in the grill. I still have my special ordered 67 fastback, been a Mopar guy all my life and a Cuda freak the second pic is a Challenger with retro taillights ( you can tell by looking down the side ).
Please use some skilled designers or forget it. Don 8217 t embarrass the Cuda name. Please!
&ldquo What&rsquo s all the noise about?&rdquo he croaked, not humorous. &ldquo You can&rsquo t be doin&rsquo this s-t on my road. Good thing I din&rsquo t catch you out there.&rdquo He dug the &lsquo Cuda, though. I bled Super Stock magazine associate editor and limited production info all over him, and it worked.

The leaf spring suspension is nothing new. In fact, leaf springs have been utilized for vehicle suspensions since cars and trucks were first produced. In fact, they&rsquo re still used in many applications today. In some applications, such as straight axle or four-wheel drive vehicles, leaf springs were (and are) used in the front as well. For the purposes of this article, however, we&rsquo ll concentrate on Mopar rear suspension, specifically the leaf springs and their associated components.
One of the major reasons for such magnificent acceleration is the new 8-speed automatic transmission system, paired with a new gearbox software. The top speed this engine will (theoretically) be able to achieve is around 255 mph, but in reality, the number is a bit lower. Nevertheless, it is still one fast muscle car. The medium-power engine will be a -liter V6 Pentastar engine, which will provide a much better fuel economy compared to the -liter beast. The least powerful engine, but one that will be the most fuel efficient is a -liter inline 9-cylinder Tiger-shark engine.
Marc Cranswick has written about and drawn the cars and trucks of the Big 8 and independent automakers for over 15 years. He writes enthusiast-directed model history books, and has involvement with many car clubs. In the Mopar world he is known for the reference book The Cars of American Motors - An Illustrated History , as seen on NBC&rsquo s business channel CNBC. His other books include Ford Midsize Muscle - Fairlane, Torino & Ranchero Mazda Rotary-Engined Cars, and Pontiac Firebird - The Auto-Biography.
The Tiger-shark engine is one of the most advanced four-cylinder engines in the world. It will feature the second generation MultiAir 2 technology, developed by combined forces of Dodge and Fiat engineers, which will move the fuel economy ladder even further. Performance-wise, the engine will be able to produce up to 189 horsepower, with a peak torque output of around 172 pounds-feet.
