Thanks for the kind words Willy!...It's a blast to drive,consistant like crazy, usually within a half a mph. and .010 sec. each lap. over the winter we'll get after it a bit and the performance will come around.

Willy,

Very nice! Is the front end steel, with a glasshood only? What brand hood?
If the front is steel, is the bumper steel as well?

Did you mold the scoop into the hood, or did it come already done?
What's it weigh?

Thanks much.
Dave

Hey Dave,
The body is all steel, including the front and rear bumpers. The hood is from Bruvis glass works out of Tennessee, they make a very nice piece, no fitting and close gaps, all hand laid with stiffeners in the right places. It weighs about 11lbs. funny thing, the box it came in weighed 19lbs. The rear deck lid is made from carbon fibre,and is removable for fuel and battery. Thanks for your comments, Lawren.
