Today's progress..... I added the angles to the frame behind the firewall and I got the front clip stuck on there where it goes. Then I trimmed the firewall to fit back on. Next I will connect the forward part of the front clip to the roll cage with some 1.625" tubing.

Like Rex says very nice, are you designing in places to stick in a ton of lead or more to keep her planted so you can use all that new power?

You don't want the rear spoiler getting to the light's ahead of the pilot!!

Yes the main frame rails along the floor of the cockpit are open on the back side. We will be making bricks that fit up in there and bolt on caps for the rails. It will give us roughly 10' worth of 2"x4" tubing to fill with lead. Not to mention the 1/4" plate floor and other spots to fill with lead.

Little bit of cage progress. Haven't done much lately but this. Got word from SCTA about body stretch and wheelbase so we are good to go with that.

My first reply on this thread, I like how you have many tubes notched and tied together!

thanks T!

More progress lately. I mostly finished the mid plate and reinstalled the drivetrain into it's final position. Next up will be front engine mounts. We were originally talking about two plate style mounts on the front of the block, down low but after thinking it over real well I think using the stock mounting holes on the block will package best and free up room up front where things are likely to get pretty cramped.

  Looks like the engine could be set back closer to the firewall. We set ours back as far as we could and still pull the heads straight off the studs.

  We also ran bars from bottom to top on cross tubes like yours behind firewall and mounted to engine plate with 3- 5/8 bolts on each side thru upright bars with steel tubing welded inside for bolts to pass through.

  More weight on rear tires grin
