    Ok, so things came back from being powder coated. Next is to assemble and bring it home, dissemble it and paint the cage.

    We are getting closer all the time. The scale picture is no fluids, electrical, plumbing or drive shaft.

      Took my car to the track, and on a very soft dyno tune went a 5.59 @128 let off in the 1/8 and coasted to a 9.19 quarter. Drag Radial street car.

        Holy crap! Love this car! You going to make some full 1/4 mile passes or just stick with 8th? Any thoughts on potential with boost turned up?
