    Idk if you frequent youtube that much but tony angelo just built a cuda drift car he debuted at sema caled project fishtail. Im not a huge fan of the drift scene but its deff something different and may be a fun challenge.

    The truck is a lil red express kit that i could not stand the chassis it came with. I decided to Build a one off full custom tube chassis even though i never did it before. The project was never finished and my son got ahold of the chassis and demolished it kinda dissapointing.The next are a set of scratch built headers i made for a twin turbo ls motor. The motor was for an irocz tribute car i was building for a friend who passed but once its started coming together it tears me up to look at it still. I hope to finish it one day.

    The question i have is how much for a printed srt4 im an old school turbo dodge guy and Iam currently building a real 85 omni glh that is going to be srt4 swapped. I have pretty much every turbo dodge models made and would love to have the srt4 for all of them.

    Twin turbo z28
    Well guys heres my attempt at a tribute car for a freind and coworker of mine that past away this last october. The car im building is a twin turbo 80's z28 to match the car he built. So far ive been working slowly and doing what I can . Heres some quick pics so far. The kit i got as a base was not a ttop car like his so that was modified . I also found wheels pretty similiar to his so I used those as well. So far it has been alot of work making it all fit but it should be worth it in the end.

    This was not the factory engine the new thing is for everyone to get bone stock 5.3 blocks from the junkyard and boost that BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH outta them. Thats what he did car made roughly 700-800hp based on tune and fuel

    I picked up a 2013 camaro zl1 kit from hobby lobby last night for 10 bucks . I know its not identical but still jas the coil on plug setup and will look close enough to what i need. The blower will be left off so I can build a custom high rise like he had. Thanks for all the help guys this project holds a special spot on the hobby table and your efforts mean the world.

    Hey guys im building tribute car for a friend of mine who  passed away in an accident involving his 87 z28 that was a twin turbo 5.3 car. I have found the model kit needed and already got the torque thrust wheels needed. The final peice of the pie is an  engine. His engine was actually a truck motor 5.3 but idk if thos are available. Please let me know if you have one thanks!
