Love the stance. What are you thinking for 1/4 mile times?


My money is on low 8's right down to mid 7's. Any slower and it would all seem to be a waste considering what others are running for less effort.

So would I but you got to be conservative and employ some safety factor. I reckon fist few runs he will pull 8's or even 9's cause he'll be s**t bricks at how savage it launches (if that motor has the internals to back up the externals).

Having said that he could be one of dodgy guys who builds up cars all sow no go; Spends big on the body and chassis but only throws a few bolt ons onto the motor to make it look serious. There's so many of them getting around these days its not funny.


And Mont 5.0. The last batch of pics were taken on Wednesday, How much more recent do you want to get?
