Hewland Gearbox DCB 5 speed manual gearbox(GTO) or 4speed (GTU); Spice front and rear suspension; pontiac fiero fiberglass body, neumatics lift system; dual MSD system. Both ends were fitted with adjustable rollbars. Brake calipers were from Hurst Airheart. Fuel tank location was central. GM designed ignition system with adjustable rev limiter. Quartermaster dual plate clutch. Different fuel injection systems have been tried in the search for power and reliability. Clay Young entered the first one in 1984 and fared well, taking two victories in his first season. Huffaker built many chassis, and later GTO versions would fight against the big bore cars. Bob Earl took two wins in 1987 in the Spice built Dingman Bros car. Jeff Hazel would supervise the car evolution. It featured many Spice components.
