Chassis welding is complete now and the roll cage fabrication is in progress. Cool shop car, will be SFI 5.99 legal. Most probably a few of the crew will get a kick at the can driving.

Not sure? The car that was in the shop had the TCI frame setup and if that is the one then yes. I'm really close to a full mock up and start all the pre painting work.

All three of them have the TCI suspension in them. The twin turbo LSX vert is next up to be finished.

Hey Bud to answer your question the Hawk HPS in the blue box would be slightly more aggressive then the stock pads and the Hawk HP+ in the red box are very aggressive and noisy and tougher on rotors. My plan is to run Blues on the street and swap out to Reds for the road course.

Thanks Bud. The dragster is our first attempt at building a chassis from scratch and will feature a in house carbon fibre body with front and rear canards. Next winters project will have doors.

Jason says it works as advertised and beta testing is just about finished. Should have in my hands early Feburary, ARH has shipped the straight pipes. 2-step is really meant for a clutch car though.

Here's some cool CNC stuff from JS Powersports for the Dragster. Front and rear canard ribs and levers.
