Still haven't got to machining the front wheels, the front may look kinda goofy with the grease cap sticking through. If I have time I would really really like to figure out a way to mount some obnoxious knockoffs to cover them up. Anybody know if anything exists that can mount on the actual lugs?
Running a 28" tire, anything smaller doesn't look good on the car.
Steering shaft still proves to be a PITA to figure out. I was trying to avoid milling on the manifold because of mounting it to a fixture, but don't think its gonna happen otherwise. Probably going to have to mill BOTH sides and do some fancy schmancy cast tig welding so it can break during the race.
Playing around with rear suspension designs. I really wanted to do a high mount 3 link and tie the upper link into the cage, but that upper mount has to come through the floor where the factory fuel tank is. To keep the fuel tank I can run a torque arm setup, but that doesn't give me any adjustability for antisquat.
I'm thinking of maybe putting a fuel cell in this thing now because I want to run that arm through the floor.
What have I gotten myself into :\
58 DAYS LEFT

Playing around with where the axle is going to be
