Default BADSSEi: The Future!

What is the future of BADSSEi? If something was mentioned regarding this, I missed it.
Will BADSSEi return to racing?
If so, what size turbo(*)?
I just am curious as we missed the car this past racing season (not many missed me racing, but I missed me racing this past year also).

its in a hiatus state IIRC, and no details were being disclosed, i believe it is not a priority for INTENSE at the moment, but there are plans

With Bob'* car trying to take the FWD record, and Tim'* new Firebird project trying to take the RWD record, not much is currently planned for BADSSEi other than sit in a nice warm garage and rest for a while. The powerplant was parted out and sold and while we are not officially retiring her she will probably be in "drydock" for a while.

So in other words you can claim the fastest FWD record, as far as current running Bonneville'* goes?

I was just thinking about the pics I saw the other day of BADSSEi'* engine and it looked like a turbo intake manifold on a L67/L32 LIM.

BadSSEi'* intake setup was completely custom designed for the blowzilla Kenne Belle blower.

I believe they are doing a single or twin turbo L36 rwd setup. Either way, it should more than shred any lightly-mildly modded LS1 TA.
