    Introducing the Gearhead Gen3R turbos! I'm very excited to say the least. I made a video on my YouTube channel for those interested. Little late to the news on here.

    Making room for custom crash bar. If demand is there may get a batch made up once the car is running and could be used as a jig. That and putting new upper trans mount on the car

    Made up a battery relocation last night. Gets rid of that big bulky battery tray and still keeps the weight over the front of the wheels.

    Wierd.


    I guess drag racing has different rules. In SCCA, and other road course racing, the battery has to be relocated to the trunk.

    I didn't want to take weight from the front but I know this probably skirts the rules even in drag racing but I have the ability to swap it around anyways. The car isn't a purpose built drag car and plan is to be overall street machine so not a specific purpose in mind but the most optimal configuration for what I am trying to do

    Couple cool notes from the last couple days...

    My turbine housings and exhaust manifolds plus some other stuff has been received by my ceramic coater. Ended up going more local and staying in Missouri with performance coatings plus out of Joplin!

    That and mailing a block to the east coast is about $140. Yes, I am getting a CSS closed deck now! Was talking with @802SHO and he kind of pushed me over the edge on it. I was originally just going to keep her tame and within the limits of the trans, but you know platform pushing is about being able to make the jumps when parts are available and worth while. While the trans won't be up to par currently what's stopping the platform from getting a proper more producible built trans in the next couple years that won't be insanely expensive compared to the built options thus far.. So build for what you think you might do in the future and not what you are doing currently!

    P.S. The bare block is about ~75lbs!

    Smart move....painful, but smart. In the end you’ll be glad you did it, for piece of mind if nothing else.

    Nice to see you heeding sage advice in closing the deck. Very good indeed.

    Keep at it. #because race car
