Definately going to use a fuel cell. The race is in October but we always have video running when we race to learn from our mistakes and see wht we can improve uppon. The best thing is that the car will be a sleeper. People wont know what hit them when we take off. Not only it it getting an insane motor but all the upgrades to that motor we can legaly do. Thinking the Hole shot nos system just to give it that extra edge. We are going to try having custom rims made that look identical to the stocks just alot stronger. We tested the rims today and anything over 400 hp twised them into a nasty piece of metal. This is what I live for!!!

Go TURBO. That is you're best hope for awsome topend. Which you WILL need very much so against muscle cars. It is much harder and more expensive to get topend out of a */C. Whereas with a turbo you can do very little with the motor and still have awsome topend.

Working on a site but don't have it up yet. Hopefully it will be up around the 1st. I hate computers. Thats why I have to hire someone sooner or latter to do all the computer stuff for me. My secretary is more computer illiterate than I am so she wouldnt do but hey she makes a nice thing to look at in the morning haha. Anyway the Idea of the super came form a friend of mine who runs a turbo into his super thought we might try it but I've never heard of anyone else doing it so we will see wht we go with when we get there. It will take a couple of weeks just to get everything positioned right then we break into the upgrades from there.

They were the alloy 5 spoke rims that came with the car. We knew that they wouldnt work but for kicks we tried them on our '69 firebird racer and it demolished them on the dyno.
Here is a quick look at our past and current projects until my site is ready

How did you get 5x115 wheels on a 69 firebird?
