LaborDay weekend '96 I blew the motor and have since torn the car down to the bare frame and started over. Maybe I'll send a few in progress photos in the near future. I have no idea what the car will weigh or run now. It has a ten point cage, all aluminum interior, lexan back windows, and has been lowered to 7 inches from the bottom of the frame rails to the ground (adjustable to 5 inches) w/ 29 x 10.5 inch slicks......Oh and of coarse it will have a bigger and better motor!
