Back from media blasting... or what was left of it anyways! The lack of solid metal left on the car eventually gave way to letting the ideas flow on what would eventually be done to the body. Since almost everything had to be re-made, we might as well add our own style to it. More on that to come

We set out to build a car that would perform as good as it looks, and look as good as it performs. The foundation for the car is one of our Fast Track chassis systems. Here are a few pics of the chassis on a frame table for the build to begin



We built a custom 3-Link on this car and made custom main rails that allowed for a side exhaust.

Took some time building that bracket......looks like artwork as opposed to a bracket under a car. Nice details....
