    I have been so busy with life and work lately that I haven't been very active here. I figured I'd share some of my current build that I have been working on.

    Full 4130 chromoly long travel chassis
    CBM Motorsports 480hp LS1
    Mendeola S4 sequential trans
    934cv's 300m axles
    Electric power steering
    ADS racing shocks coilovers/bypasses all around
    Custom tan leather/ostrich PRP race seats
    Matching inner liner on all side panels,headliner, and wrapped dash
    Carbon Fiber Livorsi gauges
    Lowrance gps
    Full rugged intercom system
    Full custom accent led package
    Powdercoat will be candy apple red
    35" General Grabber tires

    I'm sure I'm missing a bunch. Chassis is about 75% complete. Just mounted tranny, next is install motor, then finish rear half of chassis.

    It's been a while since I've posted. But the car is finished! Finally.
    That car turned out badass, and perfect right out of the box. On the fist test session we GPS'd it at over 90mph with about 1/4 pedal left.

    Thank you! Nope, not for me. This is for a client. What's nice is he's a family friend, and I'll be able to take it whenever I want!

    I forgot to post these. Got the interior panels wrapped, trailer finished (just needs paint) and he took it out to Glamis for MLk weekend. Ran flawlessly! This thing is a pure beast, and a comfortable blast to drive.
