    There are so many well thought out details on this car. I like the the passenger and driver foot guards. When I first got my car the passengers were always hitting the throttle pedal. I like that you not only created a "passenger foot stopper" but you also created a driver foot stopper that seems like it would allow the driver to just rest their foot right against it and follow the angle as they depress the pedal.


    Thanks for sharing the updates, its fun to see these cars in their assembly stages.

    Very nice.. really looking good and I am digging on the craddle so you can do the engine rear end etc and then attach to the car.. nice.

    The little details is what makes the car stand out as already pointed out.
    Very cool and I look forward to seeing the graphics and more.

    Keep us updated and once again very nice car, well done.

    Thanks Tut

    Worked slowed,,,,,other stuff going on this weekend.
    We went to a 3/8 banked oval dirt track test & tune with 2 of the older cars.
    Track was pretty rough but it was fun.

    We met some guys who race mini late model cars with motorcycle engines.
    Similar weight and power,,,they were pretty cool.
    The one they had there had a 1000cc honda in it

    We may go test at another track in 2 weeks with 4 of those cars,,,and 3 of ours to see how different they are on the track.
    So I need mine done in less than 2 weeks.

    Here are a couple of pics

    CNC engraving the powdercoated dash


    dash installed



    I plan on taking this one to the streets,,,,so Horn, turn signals,,etc are machined in
