Actually, the car is pretty close to being done. There are always 1,000 little items to close on, but in general it is pretty close. Waiting on the diff to be shipped. There was a small delay in heat treating and powder coating but once we get that then we can modify the upper rear components and measure for the driveshaft.

The center console gauges should be done soon too. They will look just like the factory 4 pack, but have custom Boost, A/F, Fuel Pressure and Tranny Temp guts in there... The computers log all data so we can play back all of the sensors and see what the car was doing during any given run.

After that it is just finish installing the hood, grille and front splitter, splash on a little "special" paint and good to go.

Haven't heard any explosions in the dyno room, so that is a good thing.

You will definitely deserve a patients award for this. Half of C5 is pulling our hair out just to see it. Can't imagine what it would be like to be waiting to drive it!

I think we should've filmed a reality TV show on your build.

I just want you to assure us all that this car will be ready for the fest. If I'm dragging my 'ol beater all the way to Arizona, I want to see the holy grail.

My pieces are together with yours as you and I must be on same schedule. My car is basically finished up and waiting on GForce and then getting measured for the carbon driveshaft as well. Its a relief to know we are finally getting to the home stretch. Hope to be driving with you sooner than later.

I'm with you on that one J. The only difference is we are going chromoly on the driveshaft. They have shattered a few CF's with the Twin Turbo motors.

I guess I better check on the carbon shafts as I thought this was the best way to go as Chris never mentioned anything different to me.
