This whole car is something people will love or hate, pretty sure Tony committed to letting people hate him since it's his car!

The way it sounds from his post, Tony intends on keeping everyone's perspective of the car as pretty much tail lights only anyways.  lol

Well it has been a bit since we had much to update, but some pretty cool parts have been coming in and I figured we would share! The new front and rear brakes are incredible to say the least; and the spindles we will be switching to are going to help us save a ton of weight up front.

Another piece to the puzzle! Magnus has been working on this dry sump pan for since the normal setup has the axle tube run through the mag pan. Both the mag pan and the lower pan will be eliminated and this pretty little thing will allow us to drop the engine down a considerable amount as well!

Just curious, what's the advantage to lowering the engine in a drag car?

Better weight transfer,lower center of gravity,I’ll let Tony chime in,but there are quite a few advantages:)

We had a bit of down time at the chassis shop waiting for some final pieces to roll in, but we're making good progress now. 

 

 

Here's a shot at the front end in progress.

Tony, I assume you are going to be the driver of this car?

 

Since i imagine you are stepping into an area you have never been before with a drag car of this level,   is there anyone you are leaning on in the industry to help with setup?  Or are you simply looking at what others have used successfully and trying to build off of that?       This just strikes me as more of a build because of your passion to go racing, than trying to develop new GTR parts to sell.
