Eric,

I started the same kit in Jan and also changed out the motor. Yours off to a good start looking to see more. Mine his going together good but with a bigger motor things get pretty tight.

I really like the stance you got going on. I'm more a fan of the first set of rims you had on there in the first photo. I also love the big cowl, gives it a real aggressive look. Keep it going, nice work do far.
