You make some sacrifices to go fast. But, I can hop in the car and drive to Houston and back.....that's streetable IMO.

Not sure. The car is too light to fit in any real "class"

What are you running for a cage? I'm assuming you'll need a chute after the first run..

Note size of wastegate (s) and imagine why I would need that. That gives you an idea.

Definitely a fairly high HP build.

Haha, I have all the safety stuff. Note how well the license plate covers everything up though.

It's a custom chassis...down to 6.0 1/4 mile in a 3200 LB car....

I can run whatever the heck I want to.

Holy **** man. Streetable? You should probably have a wheelie bar attached just in case you sneeze while driving around. Can't wait for vids!

Already taken care of. The wheelie bar mounts are on the rear housing, you just can't see it in the pics.


BTW, I have done all of the fabrication myself...aside from the cage work. Quite impressive for me to look back on what I have accomplished.
