Haha, yeah the DRs are going to have a very limited life span. I should probably start putting cash away now for the next pair.

1000hp DSS axles.

On install found that they were making contact with the ABS rings and needed a bit of milling. This is just one of many small, unforeseeable, details that add time to an already complicated build.

Driveshaft safety loop installed and buttoned up. Car should be hitting the dyno this weekend for tuning.





Having an issue with the Norm re-modified hood still not clearing the supercharger. The ZR1 like window idea is a flop. With recent events at his shop there is no reason to send it back and expect it to be fixed anytime this decade. Dave will try making lemonade from lemons by fabricating a metal trim ring around the opening, Callaway style (pic is for reference only. I will post pics of my hood once it is finished)
