How many miles/hours can you drive on 52 gallons, do you think? Plus, having a 30gal tank as a passenger will help some of the car balance with you in it

OMG. LOL.. and worse if running E-85. I was getting about 4-4.5 mpg with the turbo version of my car. low boost @360whp. So it all sounds about right.

Don't know how I missed this thread but its very impressive.

I have a few questions though about what tires you plan on running for them to last 4 hours?

Secondly, I like the cage modification for easier access and it likely makes the cage stronger (given the force of a hard side impact would be pushed into the top and bottom rail. So in a way the top rail triangulates the top bar into the main cage so that is good! Overall a very impressive car what class do you plan on running it in?

Awesome, sounds great.

And I knew it was missing something! Eh, who needs a motor/trans when you can do it Flinstone Style.

Amazing how short the wheelbase looks in the last photo. You've certainly ticked a lot of the option boxes Tony!

Today's Update....

Got rid of the factory caster block mounts. Chop chop chop.... Gone!

They are simply too low.
