This is one of the coolest cars I've seen. I hope to be able to do something like this one day . Can't wait to see it finished.

I absolutely LOVE this car!!!

PooK, PLEASE keep building these! I will be contacting you in a few years for a build of my own. I was looking at the Factory Five Project 818, but the design and construction of yours looks (to me atleast) soooo much better than the FF 818... You'll have my business when it comes time for my early "mid-life crisis"

The good news is TheGnome may have found us a new Fiberglass company and dropped the molds off The BAD news, he told us we may have a half dozen pulls left before its time for new molds$$$$.$$
Oh well, they were my first FG production parts and I guess I was lucky they worked at all.
Now its on my mind that I either need to invest in a quality set for this design OR.... take the time and design an whole new body package for the little car?

Like this profile?
The wing is not the wing we'll be using, Its for mock-up. But very close.
The splitter is still mounted as it protects the Radiator and directs the air under the wing into the rad as well.
It can be removed and just use the splitter if needed for "in town" I guess?
The height is 4" at the winglets but not sure they are the shape we'll use?
also the car is not at its ideal ride height so we may adjust again once she's at fighting weight.

When this gets to TiC I might need to sit in it, just to see if I will fit and if I dont, I know how much weight I will have to loose to get in it lol

The pictures look awesome! Hell I'd almost want one without all the fiberglass mess. I plan on using mine on sunny days (at Autocrosses, Track events, and weekends) though. Do you think you can fabricate a trailer hitch for it to tow a track trailer??

C'mon now...it won't be 1/4 scale. Unless we build another exobusa?... On the other hand, you did want to build a kid sized kart version. I'll take one of those too.

Damn these short legs!

I had a dream about this thing lastnight... Sorry hipowernut for thinking dirty thoughts about YOUR car ... Tell ya what, if things with my girlfriend end up not getting as serious as I hope over the next year then you can bet I'll be contacting you early PooK... But if we do end up getting more serious, then I'll be contacting you anyway ... I know "Happy wife = happy life", but she doesn't understand yet how happy this would make me, and in tern when I am happy, I'll keep her happy

Plus she LOVES autocrossing and drives in the STi as it is... One of these with the STi motor in it would up the fun factor by about 10x!!

Yeah!! Exo-Trailer!!... Because if I can stand it, I'd use this in the big endurance race "One Lap of America"... At the moment I'm planning on taking my STi back to it (it's done it twice already). But who knows, if I get serious and decide to chase a top 10 finish down the road, this might be a very possible option ...

Lay-A-Way man! Click the Lay-A-Way button!!!
Seriously, Thanks for the compliments, I would be honored to build you a toy some day!
Multi builds going on now, But always looking for #009 and #010
I'm looking foreword to going back on the day shift (once this heat wave ends) but have to admit you can get a lot done when the phone isn't ringing, and you get free labor! (Thanks Kevin)

Default New Bell TMIC has finally arrived

It seems like it has taken forever but the custom designed Bell TMIC (which was spec'd by Ryan at Moore Performance for their twin scroll turbo system) has FINALLY ARRIVED.

Danny has started fabricating the mounts and will soon have it all plumbed together with some nice new black hoses.
