Pics look great. My build is following a similar path.
Yeah it has. I have to force myself to not get caught up in that. For me it's about 90% driving and 10% racing.Its just crazy to me how fast heads up racing has gotten. Even traditionally slower classes have killers and 1/4 mile stuff seems completely dead.
It so far has been decent, I had plenty of warm days where I was out cruising and temps seemed to be 195ish. Real test will be long drives in 90-100* weather. My biggest issue so far is coolant temps rising when I shut the car off. I would love to upgrade to an electric water pump to fix that but currently dont want to spend the $700 to do so. I would like to be able to have coolant circulating with the fan on while the car is off. I have a few friends who have done rocky mountain raceweek and some of the days hit triple digit temps. I think LS fest would be pretty fun as well.How is the car driving with that radiator?
I had a friend bring me down to realiety on this too. I have already hit my original ET goal with the car and now trying to figure out what the next step would be. I was told not to chase numbers because that can take the fun out of things and get costly very fast. Considering I started with essentially a shell and did the mini tubs, suspension, engine, fuel system, brakes and wiring/tuning all in my garage is a huge accomplishment to me. The only thing that I haven't done personally on the car so far has been the front end alignment.Yeah it has. I have to force myself to not get caught up in that. For me it's about 90% driving and 10% racing.
Glad to see the car out finally,looks good. Everything has gotten super fast these days,the average street car now runs 10s lol.
Yea, its definitely not where if you have a 9sec car you are considered fast anymore, its very common to run into a 9 sec car on the streets these days. Which this is mind blowing cause i don't care what anyone says a 9sec car is still fast! LolId be willing to bet most are low 10's high 9's. I went one day this summer with a friend who has a Chevy SS with a blower on it that gets driven year round who drove to and from the track and cracked off some high 9 second passes. The last 5-10 years has gotten crazy between technology and tuning. The fact that there are cars doing 3.5X's in the 1/8th and then cars doing drag week driving 1000 miles in a week while cracking 7 second passes every day humbles you a bit
Me too, I think overall it looks cleaner. The scott rod stuff got the job done but IMO was a little too unfinished looking for my linking.I like the rear seat setup!! Looks better than the scott rod panels.
I think you should sell it to me so I can put proper motor in it
