I would like to say that IPS does not have high prices. They are right in line with other shops that do similar quality work and, in fact, are quite reasonable for the services they offer.

BTW, I'm not going to get into a discussion as to what it cost because, as driyac said, my car has been through several iterations of mods. I have redone many mods more than once. I kept wanting more power and the accompanying mods to support more power. So, I took off parts I had already modded and sold them to buy bigger and better parts. That's how it has worked with everyone I know who has built a big car.

IPS has been awesome in helping me as my goals have changed. They even shipped my parts that I sold.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words on my build... the car is off to get a bit of welding work done right now to get the new fuel cell installed and have the battery relocated so it will all fit.

Not that it matters But I'd say your no where near close. closer to 100k but not 200K. Who cares what it cost al that matters is that is runs 8.4's! Great job Emma good to see everything worked out.

We are planning to go to Norwalk next week for a test session.

We will be going to Atlanta for the LSX event at the end of the month as well.

Really? Wow...so (sorry, maybe I'm prying) is that temporary or permanent? You've got an insane car there, so I don't know...if I had a car like that, I'd at least want to have the chance of mashing the gas down the quarter mile to its full potential.

Not being allowed to do that would drive me up a wall, especially having a car like that.

Unfortunately, my health condition is only going to get worse. I had 3 choices. Sell the car, only drive it on the street, or find another driver for the track. I really wanted to see the car compete at the track, so I found another driver, Bob Williams. He is a superb driver and a really nice guy. I am fortunate that he agreed to drive my car.

Good luck with the car Terri, I love Norwalk. I hope that NMCA follows through and potentially moves the Bradenton race there next year.

The guys were working on 60' times and tuning the new fuel set up this weekend. Had to tweak a few things to dial it in. We weren't going for any record passes this time.

The car is back in the trailer and headed home. Now I get to wash all the rubber off the rear fenders.
