   1/8 Lexan is pretty easy to work with, and is also stronger than it looks. Still it's flexable enough to bend around curved areas.

We used 1/8" Lexan.

Cool build, I'll look for it, if you're going to make the salt this year!

You know, looks maybe good, but our engines sucks =(( it's really truck... us big blocks are more beautiful! It was experience and now it's finished. Only US parts - only hardcore =)

ZZ, may I respectfully disagree?

I understand the American Hardcore vibe you're looking to achieve - you're work is excellent, and you do it very well - but you are in a position to really take the whole game in a new direction on an international stage.

I could easily see a 7.7 liter ZIL engine out of a 4104 modified and put into something like these

http://englishrussia.com/2006/09/19/soviet-cars-dump/

That could be something never done before.

Rather than following the trends, you could really start one!

Imagine any one of these sedans with a chop and a big Russian rumble.

I'm looking forward to meeting you on the salt, and I'm enjoying watching the progress here.

Good idea of course, but no... I don't want to change history and make a new culture, no... And our russian engines are so bad... Our racing history is dead and i don't want to be a pioneer who will grow up it, it's a lot of money for nothing.

You must not be shopping at Russianbrides.com to find your stereotypes... put away that book about Russian labor camps... you know lots of the ladies that work at the Wendover Casinos are ex-Eastern Blockers.
