Somebody from wilwood contacted me via email. The guy I talked to told me the wrong information. The adjustable part is an additional price. But the guy helped me and is sending me one free of charge. So problem solved. Brakes are done minus buying the calipers and running the brake lines now.

Brakes are done minus calipers and hoses. Wiring is also done minus the fuel pump and fuel level gauge wires. Still need to buy the voltage regulator rectifier also. Fuse panel has built in leds when a fuse blows and is located under the dash in view when one lights up.

Extremely close now. Will start and run next week. So finish brakes, buy cooling fan, radiator hoses, and do the controls as in buy the throttle and clutch cable and just mount them. And build my shifter setup. Still might do the paddle shifter. Havenít fully decided yet.

As long as the engine doesnít have a blown head gasket or leak coolant Iím on track still for driving it next month !!!!!

It looks great. Can you tell me what tires those are and where you got them? I'd like to get some like that too.

Awesome job!

I need to make a thread about these tires I guess. Your like the 6th person that has asked. A few were in this thread.

Sun F ATV A021 street tires. eBay. $200 for all 4. And they are very nice.

And to the people that were asking about the mechanical paddle shifter............

Well it’s gonna happen. After mounting the radiator no room for linkage under it so i will be building the paddle shifter in a week or so.

Donít ever give up !!!! I started to and it was the injectors power wire feed wire. I had the wrong wiring diagram the whole time.

ITS RUNNING ON ITS OWN AND SOUNDS ANAZING.

Itís music to my ears, like one of those ďMost SatisfyingĒ videos, I can feel the stress of life lifting off my shoulders.

Next year you should give it a little wider wheel base and then drift with it, itíd look & sound so freaking cool.

Me thinks drifting wonít be a issue with over 200hp on tap.
