New drive shaft from Mark Williams, new AP racing brakes, and car getting ready to load in the trailer enroute to Ryan Linder for custom stainless steel headers. Motor is now 19 inches behind front axle centerline - that opened a whole can of worms that required a lot of fabrication and slowed me up a little. LOL

7075 aluminum. At the 18 inch length it was actually lighter than the carbon fiber shaft. As the length gets longer, the carbon fiber starts to have a weight advantage.

Car looks like it's getting there. Weighed it lately?

Hey Lance,

I've been pretty busy with work and spending a little time on track with the Viper (Inde). Back on the Corvette hard right now - need to get that thing finished. I haven't weighed it in a while - I will do that after I get the new exhaust system installed. 2.25 inch tubes and a 3.5 inch exhaust system will undoubtedly add some weight, but I did remove almost 200# with the latest firewall/frame mods. I'm still hoping to stay under 2800#.

Pappy

Ryan Linder (X-1 Race Cars) just finished my headers - awesome work. 2.25" SS tubes, SPD merge collectors.
