What???? Tell Jerry to talk some sense into the new owner... HAHA
Extreme ms (Colin and Stewart) are the Australian distributors for Radflo and have run them very successfully in the past. They have a shock specialist named Edgar on their team who has done a massive amount of R & D on them so they will work well.
It seems we will see alot of you guys down under to see this masterpiece race. LOOK FORWARD TO IT

Here is the start of the billet parts. Part one op 1 complete at the far end of the pile.

To clear things up a little.... Jerad took the frame drawing (Penhall) and the new front (proam) and stitched them together. Mastercraft provided the seat drawing and a friend of mine John provided the manequin of the 99 percentile man. He had to draw the engine because gm will not provide a file, convert all my 2d drawings to 3d 2009 solidworks because I am just getting my head around SW2006. Jerad had the thankless job of getting it all on one drawing and going through all the hoops and hurdles to get it all together for us.

It takes talent to put it all together and I was just trying to show some gratitude for dealing with impossible problems and making it all come together.

Stag where have you been? Good to finally get a chance to work with Jerry.

Thanks for the acknowledgment of having some talent. It is a nice treat to be able to design around a complete setup. This Project has been a tough one due to the packaging updates and revisions reviled in Solidworks. Jerry and his guys are building an awesome car as they always do, and the parts/drivetrain that will be coming out of Weismann are going to be a work of art as well.

There is some unexpected competition that will surface down there in the next few weeks and it will be very interesting to see the results.

Those Aluminum block look like a lot of $$$!

Here are some shots of the engine. I like how compact and light they are and how much power they put out.

This is not very cost effective for us but it will get the job done quicker. When we get some time this will go into patterns and castings. The new diffs are definitely up for patterns soon.

This was in reference to the billet blocks we are machining for this project.

The car is going to have a truck body so the tanks will be in the gap between the outside of the cage and the door. It is similar to old style indy cars. Saddle tanks. This leaves room to drop the radiators and intercoolers down in behind the seats and duct the air in from the sides just past the tanks sort of like a sportscar.

The offset boxes for the diffs are complete and the covers should be done today.

l have probably missed the part where you said whose car it is but is it coming down under as in the motor photos it looks like Colin Hunters transporter. Will it have a Jeep body.

Very good obsevation. We like to keep our customers confidential but I can tell you that it's not getting a "Jeep" body. You're close though.

So it more of a fun car, not a formal Class 1 "race car" with those turbos, I am guessing?

Looks very cool.
