Wow. Great car. Amazing how you also built all those other cars at the same scale, and all that work that was done on the buildings and ground. Amazing job there. Oh wait.......... that's a real car........... well based on your ability and skills it's hard to tell the difference now. ;-) :):D

Dave I hope you didn't mind me prying into your personal business. I just saw the post in the other thread and thought others here would really like to see what you were working feverishly to acquire.

Again, I appreciate you sharing with us and can't wait to hear more some day.

What an awesome street machine it's going to be!

What are you going to do to the interior?

Also, it's going to look lost without huge rubber in the rear - what's planned?

thanks guy!

ted, as far as the interior goes it was originally built to be a pro street car. so, it already has provisions built in for twin recaro seats. as much of the c/f and race stuff as can, will remain. it will need a speedo oil pressure and a fuel gauge. very sparce on the interior.this car was originally built by vanishing point. some of you may have the build pics stored away. there have been a ton of upgrades done to it since it's original build.

as far as rear tires go, hoosier makes a set of 33 x 22.5 x 15 quick time pro (DOT tires) that will end up on the rear. they are a little smaller than the 34.5 x 17 16 on it now but, they will have to do.

Why do some promod wheelie bars have a net and some don't?

don, you bet it will. it'll probably see the track a few times before it makes it to the street.

dave, i guess it all depends on the guy who owns the car. some guys use chute launchers and might feel they don't need the net. also might depend on the style of wheelie bar, where the chutes are mounted, etc.. personally i'd use the net. on some of the tracks with shorter shut down areas, i've seen chutes get tangled in the bars and become ugly fast.

the net is not a mandatory item.
