Inspirational build Mark, the engine choice and ABS put this car WAY over the top!! It was fun watching the build.

Default Red Devil


surely, unless GM comes out with an LS10, you are going to keep this car. I know that building is half the fun for you, but surely you must want to hold on to this one. Let's face it, the performance #'s for the street are nearing the limits of practicality. What else could you want in a car?????

But, I found out it doesn't matter because Optima is not doing 0 - 60 - 0 MPH it is a stop box deal. Not sure what speed we will hit or the distance.

Thanks for everyone’s kind works on this build. The car has been awsome!

The paint and engine are the high lights. This is the best car I have ever done.

It has been an evolution of learning’s over time and the availability of good aftermarket and factory parts.

There are some builders that have built some great cars, but they might have also built a couple I didn't care for..... With you, I can't say that you've missed the mark even once!

Thanks for being honest Mark. I'm interested to hear your opinion on the BFG's. I've found the forward bite to be good but it's changed the feel of my car. None the less, those are some sick numbers. Hope to race you at the Optima Challenge. Old school vs. New.
