Well Jim, your car is truly inspirational. If you can put all your know how to building a tranny that will hold up Ill be more impressed. All that work and all youll get is maybe 2 passes on it before you brake something. Sorry, just going by what Ive seen in the last couple of years. ;)  Klaatu hasnt met the Red Snapper yet, be scared! :P

Seems to me that car should be worthy of a Mendeola. Easy for me to say since I'm not the one writing the checks!
Your car is defineatly something to watch for next year...keep up the great work Jim. :rockon:

I think you need to stop making love to the intercooler and start working on that car....
Ok, lets all chip in and buy Shane a winter hobby. I think he is getting cabin fever without the Hulk to look forward to. :wacko:

Mendeola ,removable apron ,5pt cage ,suddenly it ain't much of a street car with the tranny raise already done  .Maybe the water bucket has room to hold a couple of pops &sandwiches for those lovely 140 mph Sunday drives!
