    Any quad car enthusiast out there?

    I am newly injured , 4.5 months post injury c7 complete. My life revolved around cars and can not wait to get back in one. Unfortunately all my cars are standard but I'm going to have them converted. I'd like to hear from other quads that still enjoy the hobby!

    I don't know if a quad can use it, but there is at least one set up for a stick. I wouldn't rush to change all your cars. Give it a year or two, you might get something back.

        I'm not converting all them at once I'll do them one at time as I can afford to do. I would start with my everyday reasonable car, I'm look into the hand controls for a stick but I don't know if that will work without full hand function. Quartermile, so I'm going say drag racing ? When you get a chance if you could message me I have a few questions and maybe we can chat cars for a bit.

            If you have a contact with them, I suggest they put more info on the cars on their website.

            Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

                  You can contact them for more information through their website, and there is a lot of information about their car racing program on their Facebook page as well.

                    Yes! !934 Dodge pickup with 360/727. Got in it for the first time Friday- a tight fit. Drivers must have been a lot smaller in those days (I'm 6' and 210 lbs.

                      How about describing your controls for us?
                      Fabbing controls is an obsession of mine!

                      EDIT-sorry-I'm not a quad.
                      Member MrSporto has a later 911 Sportomatic (automatic clutch) and can drive the wheels off it. He may be selling it after long ownership. He's a genuine quad and good guy.

                        Picture of my 1968 Pontiac. Big Block 502 Chevy, dual 650 Quads, Th 400 Trans modified, MSD. Have you thought about maybe just getting rid of your cars and replace them with Automatic cars? Might be a lot less expensive and more practical this way unless you are like super attached to them. What do you have? Pictures?

                          Well not I'm I only super attached but they are cars that I may not be able to obtain again. I have a 1956 studebaker Pelham 2 door station wagon that my father gave me, than a 98 saleen bright Atlantic blue roller, 99 saleen s351r , 01 saleen/cobra ( forsale) , 04 saleen/cobra ( wrecked but being rebuilt). I am working on pictures I am unsure how to post them . Timmy I would love to see your hand controls. That Pontiac must move with a 502 in it !

                            Definitely make friends with pfcs49 because he is a very smart mechanic and he knows a whole lot about racing with hand controls.
                            Check out this thread on the AutoClutch. /forum/showthread.php?233311-AutoClutch

                            Curt, I love the Purple Pont-a-saurus with the white top!

                              The cool thing is that it's not always purple, color changing paint. Btw, I'm not a quad, a high level para, Just had to show off my car, lol. It's fun to take this car to shows, people love it. I just put a new motor and trans in the car last winter and need to fine tune some things, it still does not run as well as I'd like at high RPM's I think it's something to do with the carbs, put different metering blocks on with the new motor (mainly because they are purple and match the car) but I'm thinking maybe all the flow ports are not lining up right or something. The other issue is it runs hot when idling, think I'm going to need a different fan setup, more than likely just go to a big mechanical fan with a large shroud. The small duel electrics just don't seem to cut it with this 502 big block chevy motor.
