What's the easiest way to post a video? I will share a little teaser video.

So once we got it running and did a couple test hits on the street we realized real quick that we had to get a different converter as it wasn't letting the turbos spool. The next thing on the list was to get the chassis and suspension checked to make sure it would go down the track safely. I sent it out to Jeff Lutz where it is currently.

Once there Jeff and I discussed getting a new rear end and pulling the wheels and tires out wider to make it look much better. If you notice in some of the pictures the tires set in about 4 to 5 inches from the lip of the fender. So that part is under construction and the new converter is going in. I hope and pray after that we are done! Then we will take it to a track there in PA.

Ok, here is an update. Rear is in and you can see the difference below. I will get better pictures later, looks much better.

Now we are switching out the tranny and converter. Again, due to technology change from 8 years ago, there was a concern the tranny would not hold the power. Input shaft was too small and one thing led to another

God willing, it will be ready to run down the track soon!

Looks great!

Looks like you widened the axles about 3 inches per side?

Do you have a side view of how the wheels/tires sit in the wheel well?

Thanks!
