This is an amazing amount of dedication good work.
Thank you FasTTurbo!! Lots of great appreciation from this forum! The build is really beginning to come together now so we’re not far away (relatively speaking ) from getting her fired up. We’re getting anxious to hear her! And to see those flames out the side!This is an amazing amount of dedication good work.
Hey, thanks! I’m hoping I’ll have more frequent updates throughout the Spring as we inch our way closer to the finish line. I don’t think I’ll have time for a wind tunnel test till next winter, but I’m okay with that. My goal is to get the car fully assembled mechanically and tuned and on the track at some point this summer. The body will be a separate finishing project. We’ll see what happens over the next few months. Maybe the winds will change.Impressive and fascinating work!
I know it the photos and writing take time, but it's certainly appreciated - please keep those updates coming!
Yeah it’s a very nice build. Great track car. There is a substantial difference...not trying to take anything away from that build. For instance the subframes are stock location which is the main difference. The wheels appear to be 26”. It’s hard to fit anything larger under the fenders without really messing with the suspension geometry unless the ride height is kept up a bit and one compensates with bodywork that makes it appear as if it’s low. Other than that yeah some similarities. I like the manual sequential gearbox. I almost opted for that, but settled on paddle as I’m going for all out speed.
Thank you for your enthusiasm!! It's 'nearly' just as painful for myself as well. We've been busy with unrelated things the past couple of months, but we have made some small strides as I will post shortly. In perfect hindsight I probably should have started this thread later in the build when it was nearly completed to keep the content updated more frequently, but I honestly thought we would be further along at this point. It's just the way things go sometimes. Life gets in the way. We'll keep plugging away till she's done that's for certain. It's an emotional rollercoaster!This has got to be one of my favorite builds I've ever witnessed. Waiting for updates is nearly painful! Thanks for going to such lengths with a project like this.
