Overall engine area shots now that itís finished minus a few welds............itís got coil overs now also which seemed to have helped a lot.

Well a fresh heads up on the build. All welded and now I gotta figure out the traction issue. As in it doesn’t have any. Hahaha. Get some track passes finally and hopefully it will do decent on something prepped maybe.

How's the head spacing now? It's been a minute since I read this but, have you thought about adding padding to the cage?

Iím 3Ē under the cage now. Donít even come close to touching anymore.


And everything went great testing. It was spinning but still trapped over a 100+mph and it was spinning to the 60í and I let out before the 1,000 ft. Mark. And was running full 1/4 mile runs.

Iím camping right now but when I get home Iíll update my YouTube videos and add them here.

Faster than a '68 Shelby Mustang GT500KR and probably a heck of a lot cheaper.
